I Just found some really cool black and white pics from circa 2009 thanks to the Shutterfly app on my phone. Everyone needs this app!! Here’s why: It automatically backs up every photo you take with your phone. Goodbye, Dropbox out-of-space messages! You can access all the photos you take with a real camera and upload to Shutterfly from your computer– on your phone. The best part, though? FREE 100 prints FOREVER when you order through the app. Just pay shipping. There are pretty neat deals for free 8×10, magnets and more. I always want physical copies on my photos. And I am OCD about backing them up on apps and external hard drives. Plus, it’s always fun to look back at your hairstyles!
I ordered this “welcome to our love story” sign from Etsy while planning my wedding. Our ceremony was originally supposed to be in an apple orchard, and it was the perfect way to greet guests. Of course the day of our wedding it rained and everything had to be moved inside! But the sign still did its job. After the wedding, we put the sign in front our our new house. A sneaky neighbor stole it and returned it months later. Weird, but we’re happy to have it back and safely decorating our yard. We’ve since taken family photos by the sign during momentous occasions, like when I was pregnant and when our daughter was born. I love that we have established this tradition and hope it inspires other families to do something similar!
