I currently have 17,956 photos on my phone. Please tell me someone has me beat?

I’m a sentimental sap. I love photographs, and I love making those yearly Shutterfly books. Greg always gives me the ‘Oh No. Photobook time!’ look when I sit down to do them because it’s all consuming for a couple days. I’m about a year behind right now because I feel like I can never find the time!!!

My girlfriends gave me a photo book on my 40th filled with messages and memories that I’ll cherish forever. It was one of the sweetest gifts I’ve ever received. Truly, (this picture above) are the stacks I’d grab in a fire. Hands down.

I discovered Chatbooks a few years ago, and they’re perfect for quick, inexpensive photo books when you don’t have time to sit down for days to make a book...Because who really has time for that? And, They cost $10 a piece to make. They look cool on a coffee table, and my kids love to go through them and reminisce. It starts conversations, and brings back so many memories. And, They are the EASIEST albums you’ll ever make.

Check out Chatbooks. You’ll get back many hours of your life. You’re welcome. Ha!

***The cool wooden tray pictured above was gifted to me by my friend, Catie Lutsey. She has a woodworking shop in her garage (how bad ass is that?), and makes the most beautiful wooden art. Check it out: Sweet Home Wiscago
