The thing was, as I was compiling it, 2017 hadn’t officially finished.
So I left it and because it was out of sight, it was out of mind.
It wasn’t until last month, I decided to finish collating the book and get it published. Of course the Boxing Day sale was no longer applicable. But I didn’t care. I just wanted the book to be published.
It was so easy to put together and I decided to go all out with a hard cover.
I received the book a week before my Birthday and I was so happy with the quality.
The girls love flipping through the book to relive each memory. This certainly won’t be the last time I purchase a photo book. In fact, I still need to compile a baby album for Phoebe.
If there is one thing I learned as I flipped through the book, it’s that the everyday moments count just as much as the high moments in life.
The book made me even more grateful for the family I have and the girls I get the privilege of raising.
If you’ve never created a photo book before, I can definitely recommend Chatbooks. It was easy to use the app to select the photos on your camera roll. You don’t have to select photos you’ve published on Instagram either. Some of the photos were taken on our Olympus camera and we used the WIFI function to download the photos to our camera roll on our phone. Each photo has a date of when it was taken too so the book is compiled in order.
If I’m having a not so fabulous day at home, I know the book will be something I can grab and flick through. And it’s a treasure that we can all look back on.
