MEMORY LANE + A LYVE HOME GIVEAWAYTuesday, May 05, 2015
Join me. Won't you? On this little trip down memory lane. The Lyve App can now be downloaded for free on iOS, Android, and on your desktop. You may remember my post about the Lyve Home storage device. If you didn't win that giveaway, here's your second chance! #memorylane
I love the big chunky brown books filled with my childhood you can find in my parent's living room. Page after page of toothless grins, changing hair styles, and growing children. Those photos are precious to me and trigger memories of a happy childhood filled with love.
They remind me of how quickly time passes and how precious our moments are, especially with our little ones. The saying "the days are long, but the years are short" has never been more true for me.
My children are still babies at 3 1/2 and 7 Months but I realized today, when I looked at my Lyve App, that I started Potty Training Jonah a year ago this month. At the time, I thought it would never end and now it's been a year. Things do get better with time, but we are often left longing for the past.

While we are on this little memory lane trip, I also started to see that last year at this time I was starting to really get a baby bump... .

but the really cool thing is that since Lyve is connect to your computer + your other devices, you can see photos for as far back as your digital photo taking days take you. Like to High School Reunions with friends (notice - no wine in my hand - I was pregnant with J - barely showing).

and to awesome hair that I had time to straighten.
With the app installed on my phone I can see my photos stored on my desktop, Lyve Home storage device, my husband's phone and tablet all in one place. In the photos below, you can see photos from this weekend I took on my phone, the photo session I did last week, and down there on the right Wesley and I standing in the rain hoping to hear The Roots play at Memphis in May in 2009. You can also see the photos I took this morning of Ezra - all in one app and on the same screen. So, while those old brown books have special meaning, these photos I can see any time I want, where ever I want!
and I had to come back and add this because oh-my-mama-heart (I swear I'm not crying) I found this picture of Jonah that must have been on either my husband's iPad or his phone of baby Jonah. I swear I've never seen this picture. Heart burst! So little but he looks so much the same.
