Down the memory lane

Have you ever took a stroll down the memory lane? Try, take some time out from your busy routine or on a weekend and take a trip with the past treasured pictures you have with your loved ones.

I am definitely one of those tech savvy person, who loves to play around with gadgets, but when it comes to photographs, I prefer to gaze at a tangible picture rather than looking on a screen. The pictures we take these days end up only online or on our computers.

I believe a hard copy has it's own presence and authenticity.  Probably printing photographs have gone down but not with me, I still have our four- shelf mini closet full of photo albums of each and every trip or our kids' irreplaceable memories.  Every time, page after page of an album reveals more stories of the event. The scenarios come out live and you actually feel being in that moment. It wins out over our TV time in those winter days when I take them out often to rejuvenate their childhood.  These photo albums are one of the few attraction that gets appreciated by our guests also. 

Enjoy some shots of my lazy afternoon.


I happened to spend a lazy afternoon walking down the lane with one of my favorite album.










 It is like a tradition for me to take out those albums momentarily and refresh my memories at least once in a year.


Our wedding album to celebrate our 18 years of togetherness.


Pictures are snippets of our life, keeping our memories alive. Do consider giving photographs out as a gift. May be a serving photo tray, a couple frame for a get together on a new year's party gift  or an album to keep those snapshots handy. Shower your family and friends with gifts they can appreciate rest of their life. Until we meet again, toodles!

  3. Pretty shots! But I am one of those people who you describe in the early part of your post - I hardly ever print. We take a ton and i literally mean 1000s of pictures and they all stay as digital images.. Maybe i should finally print a few :)

  4. You have a beautiful home Pinkz !!!
    I love the fact that you still prefer the old style album of flipping through to our digital albums online. Now that you draw attention to this fact, I'm definitely going to make a trip to Costco to get a few printed. Have a wonderful day :)
