White Emerald

I really like these photos. The pop of emerald on the blouse with the white background of the snow is really pretty. At least I think so. However is was rather cold while taking these photos, 18 degrees I believe. But I toughed it out, it was definitely worth it. Pretty photos are always worth it. 

Recently, I have been doing some research into my family history. I am taking a class that is called People of the U.S. We had two options either research into the Great Depression in Washington State or research into our family history. I decided to research into my family history. So while I was home this weekend my mom and I dug through boxes of old photos and papers. It will be fun and interesting too dig deeper and look into my past. 
I think I am officially ready for winter to be over and spring to be here. I did all those winter activities already. I have skied, ice skated, sledded, drank hot cocoa, took pretty photos in the snow, and enjoyed the holidays. Now I am ready to have the temperatures increase and have the sun come out a bit more. What about you all? Are you ready for spring? 
love, Carlee

  14. Thanks for the comment and follow! I love this color green! Especially the way it looks with the snow. I am also from Washington, originally the Seattle area but at WSU right now. (Go Cougs) ;) But i noticed in your last post, that you said you are from North Central Washington. The Omak area? I have family in Omak and spent the last 3 summers there.
