A Picture Perfect Valentine's
This year I'm really excited for Valentine's Day- no fancy night out... this one's about family. I'm adding something special to the now traditional family picnic in front of the fireplace- I'm adding a family dvd comprised of all my favorite 2007 pics!
Yes girlfriends... this mama gathered up all my fav family photos and had them rolled into a dvd... and it's fabulous! Keep in mind the kids were both in school full time last year... so don't whip out the balloons + streamers for your pity party, just start planning your own dvd for next Valentine's Day.
When the kid's were little there was no way that my hubby and I could get out for V-day dinner... not that we wanted to brave the crowds anyway. I surprised my hubby with a dinner in front of the fireplace. I pulled in the bistro patio set from the wet patio, dolled it all up and cooked dinner. Which for me is a fete- cooking dinner that is.
As the kid's got bigger I decided to include them in this love-fest and it evolved into a family picnic in front of the fireplace. Last year we added some family movies. Voila... it dawned on me that how incredible would it be to create a family yearbook to unveil at this annual event!
So I diligently
- uploaded my photos
- purged and sorted along the way
- saved my favs to a special file earmarked for this dvd.
Meghan at Memories and More (contact me if you'd like her info) took care of me this past week. I previewed the dvd while everyone was out and about... and teared up, laughed, and now I'm super excited to share it with my family.
Truth be told I'm even inspired to go back and organize all those baby pics for a full length feature of 2000-2006... the early years. And there is NO problem now as I'm completely inspired to stay on top of all my 2008 pics!
Happy Valentine's Day~
