In my mind, every year is a year for the books. Whether it is the best year of our lives or we’ve been to hell and back, each year is one of growing, shaping and celebration. After all, we aren’t promised tomorrow. Every day we have here counts. With that in mind, Ian and I have always done yearly photo books. We love to take pictures. We are so grateful we enjoy documenting things all the time because it is so great to look back and remember seasons and specific memories we shared with each other.
In the past it has taken us days to sort through and edit photo books just the way we want them, but I was so excited when Shutterfly reached out to us to try their new Make My Book program. For an additional $10, Shutterfly will edit and compile your book for you. I chose the theme and color scheme I wanted and uploaded all my pics (I think there were over 400). There team then sifts through all the images and places them perfectly in the book for you. It only took 24 hours for them to send me the book proof they had compiled for me. I only made a few finishing touches and re-arranged a few pages by date. But overall it saved me SO MUCH time. If you are someone like me who loves to get images printed and books made or you have been putting it off because you know how long it’s going to take you to put a book together, I really recommend giving Make My Book a try.
It was so fun to look at the book with Cove and point out how tiny he was and all the places and things we did last year. It will definitely be something we continue to do in the future.
