Disposable Camera || Roll 8

Another disposable camera roll film! I start these when we first got to Italy and just got the roll developed a couple weeks ago. As you can see, it goes from our trip to Amalfi in August until my broken leg in December. I love the disposable camera thing. You take a photo and don't get to see it until weeks or in my case, months later. It is so wonderful. I also like the quality of film photos there is something different and charming about that. I am using that word a lot lately... charming haha. Anyways, hope everyone's week is going well. My leg is continuing to heal good and I get to put more and more weight on it each day!
love, Carlee

Bob Ross painting party for my birthday

Hey guys I wanted to share some fun photos from my birthday which was two days ago. We had a Bob Ross painting party. I saw this on the internet a couple of weeks ago and it looked amazing. Also my mom and I were going to go do a paint and sip at a local business last week but it got canceled so I was itching to do a little step by step painting and Netflix has all those Bob Ross episode where he legit takes you through how to paint the whole picture. I picked out an episode beforehand based on the supplies we had on hand and a few of us got together for my birthday to paint and drink wine. It was a lot of fun. I also had brownies (I'm not a fan of cake) and we didn't have a 5 candle so I got a 4 and a 1 so it looked like 241 on my brownies it was pretty funny. 
I love the way our paintings turned out. Every one's was a little bit different but you can tell we followed the same steps. It would have been easier if we were using exactly what Bob Ross was using. We were using acrylics and he was using oil paints. But it worked out well and it was a lot of fun.

Snow Day

We are getting so much snow here. And while I am 100% ready for spring, I have been embracing it while it is here because it really is so beautiful. These photos are from yesterday when we got about 6 more inches of snow. All the mountain passes in the state of Washington were closed yesterday because of the winter storm so we huddle up by the fire and watched moving yesterday. It was a good one. I hadn't really taken any photos of the snow since I have been here and I thought it would be a same if I didn't the whole time I was in WA so I pulled out the big camera yesterday and took some. They are really lovely. 
love, Carlee

Broken leg update!

Hey all, I have not been around here in a while and it is not because I haven't wanted to be. It's mostly because I don't feel like I have anything really worth sharing. My leg/ankle is broken and its the dead winter still here in Eastern Washington and it seems like spring will never come haha. But I actually got some good news today. I went to see my doctor and he was very excited about the healing and movement in my foot! He said that I could start bearing a little bit of weight on my right leg again building up until I am 100% weight bearing. I will still be using my crutches for stability and be in my boot. But it is progress and I am excited. I will have another appointment at the end of February were, if all goes well, I will get out of the boot and start walking more. We will see. It's been 10 weeks and I am having with the progress I have made. 
I guess I do have a few things to share, I finished a book in January (first full book I have read since June 2016, shhhhhh don't tell anyone.) And I am about halfway through another so I will share those reviews on here. I do want to get back to posting. That is something I have always done whether people have been reading or not and it will be good to get back into that and feel 'normal' or at least do things I used to normally do. Anyways, thats all for now. Thanks for the love and prayers. 
love, Carlee
