For the Fourth of July this summer, my family headed to the Cayman Islands with my great-grandmother in tow. It was her first time out of the country, and to say it was one of the most special trips I’ve ever taken would be an understatement. She’s a truly incredible, incredible woman to whom I look up and respect so much. She is a woman of grace and kindness, and I feel so grateful to have my great-grandmother in my life!
We, of course, documented every single moment of the trip. There’s never a dull moment when it comes to my dad’s side of the family, so there are folders and folders of images from the vacation. I love love love that there are things like Dropbox and AirDrop so that we can share those photos amongst the grandchildren, but I unfortunately don’t feel like those are as enjoyed as having them printed out!
My family has a tradition of getting books of photos printed from Snapfish after every vacation. It’s always a conversation about when I’ll finish the book (and sometimes video!) so we can relive the trip. This year, I had the opportunity to work with Snapfish to put it all together a little quicker than usual (okay, so it wasn’t that quick), so that I could give it to Grandma Moon for Christmas! I am so excited for her to unwrap it on Christmas morning so that we can all go through the images together and laugh about the trip we had.
At home, we keep all of our photo books on a table in the living room, and almost every time I’m there, I pick them up and flip through them. It’s so much more gratifying than having them in a folder on my phone (though when I’m feeling homesick, I do flip through those folders :)) and it always makes us laugh and reminisce.
If you’re looking for a thoughtful gift that pretty much anyone is going to love, I highly recommend these books! We’ve loved Snapfish books for so many years, so it was really exciting to partner with them for this.
