Photo Album Envy
The very first time B brought me home to his parents he showed me these photo albums. Ever since then I have wanted a collection just like it.
B's mom started the first album on her honeymoon in Mexico in 1965.
Under the pictures are brief explanations of where the pictures were taken, who is in them and the date.
Love this shot from their 1st anniversary.
Both of them are fantastic at getting pictures of people. I tend to bring my camera to functions, get some starting shots and then forget about it. I need to spend more time getting pictures of people and not just the food!
Here is little B at 4 months old- the same age as Peanut.
I love looking back thru these at family and friends, different places, the change in photos and the change in fashion.
Every time I pull one out I hear stories and memories and their are sighs and laughter to go along with them.
All the albums are numbered and in order. On the other side of the partition are special albums. I just recently found out these exist and haven't been through them yet.
For instance, each of the grand kids have one.
An entire family history.
So I vowed to start printing my pictures monthly because I have a tendency to just leave them on memory cards. I've also noticed that when I order pictures they come out of order which is a hassle to reorganize if I get too far behind.
You know, it wasn't that easy to find a large picture album. Everything is about scrapbooking these days.
I have albums started from the time I found out I was pregnant and I'm hoping I can get photo books done of the wedding and the honeymoon.
Have the blog really helped me get organzized for this. I love having an online journal.
I just need to go back and add in some dates and descriptions and we are on our way to our own family history!
Oh and I need to stop taking 500 pictures a day of the same subject. :)
Do you print out your pictures? Do you put them in albums? Do you scrapbook?
