|Our infamous Gettysburg camping trip during the monsoon.|
It all began several months ago with a paragraph in Parade magazine. A company called ScanMyPhotos.com was recommended for turning those pre-digital photos* into jpegs. This was something I'd been meaning to look into, but was afraid of the expense.
|Sunny was our family dog/Houdini for 15 years.|
When I googled the company a link to a Groupon came up. I'd never used Groupon but getting 1000 pictures digitized for $29.99 sounded great. It took awhile but finally on July 29 the pics were boxed, numbered, counted. They spanned a period from 1992 to 2000. It was spooky putting them in the mail. Would we ever see them again?
|First winter after moving back East from California...|
What a nostalgic trip it's been, from removing and then replacing the photographs in their albums to sorting them into iPhoto 'events'.
|With my grandmother Helen, many Thanksgivings ago.|
|This may be the only time Lauren and I played music together!|
|Me with Honest Abe!|
If you catch yourself criticizing how you look, just stop. Don't do that to yourself! Nobody likes every picture of themselves. So what? Find what is beautiful in every picture. In thirty years, believe me, you will think you looked pretty darn good. And guess what? You do. You really do.
