sharing memories

one of my favorite things to do on a rainy day is pull out our photo albums, lay out on the carpet, and look at all of our pictures. i just love flipping through the memories, re-living moments, and sharing memories with my family and friends. i must say, i have been pretty good about having pictures printed and slipping them into albums chronologically. sure, there are some gaps in the albums where photos are missing, like, Bubba age 18-24 months (he kept me really busy!) but for the most part, we have pictures in albums. we have memories to share. and i love them.

when there are just a few favorite pictures from a specific time or event, like an Easter playdate or a vacation, i'll make a quick photo book on Shutterfly. they really are easy to make, great quality, and a fun way to share memories. i recently made a personalized Shutterfly photo book for gifts for my mom and for my mother-in-law with pictures from our trip to Florida, to thank them for going with us.

another sweet way i like to share memories and photos is by sending personalized photo thank you cards. i love using a group photo in a personalized Thank You card.
