How To Cherish Memories

When you have hundreds (or maybe thousands) of pictures saved onto your computer, it's sometimes hard to find what you're looking for. If you're a "picture hoarder" like me , then you'd agree that you find it difficult to differentiate them from useless and worthy of keeping.

Many mothers can relate when I say that there are no restrictions when it comes to photo taking, especially for your kids. Coincidentally, I started using Shutterfly in 2013, the year Kayla was born. I had tons of photos on my phone and laptop, and I knew they were just going to keep piling up.

But after using Shutterfly, I was able to sort through my pictures and keep the ones more special and worth preserving. Shutterfly is a site where you can take your pictures and turn them into one of their award-winning products. This company gives you the option to create anything from calendars to pillows. Or just simply do, the old-fashioned, photo printing and put them in your own photo album. But instead of that, you can turn it up a notch and create a photo book, just as I do. 

I've already made 5 photo books using Shutterfly. Each year, I take the most memorable photos I've taken throughout the entire year and put them into a self-designed book. I've also made some for more special occasions, including Kayla's baptism and her first birthday party as well.

I'm so glad that I found out about Shutterfly's photo books and decided to make one in 2013. Not only is it a good way to hold on to my memories, but it too is amusing to show when I have company over. As well as a useful and precious thing to pass on to generations to come.

It's something about picking and opening up a book that makes it more satisfying, instead of turning on one of your electronics and going through your photo files. This is the way I can cherish my memories without having to access a computer.
