That changed this year! I have been wanting to involve myself in a "photo a day" type memory book for quite some time but have felt overwhelmed with the idea of what I would actually do with all the photos once I had them. The sheer thought of sitting down and trying to keep track of dates and journal entries during this super busy stage of my life has made me not even want to try. I bow down to the moms that have the patience and dedication to complete beautiful decorated scrapbooks.
At the end of last year around christmas time, I got an ad for chatbooks in my email. I had heard of this company that turns your Instagram images into an adorable photo book before and had wanted to give it a try but suddenly an idea sparked in my brain. I decided that maybe I could use this simple photo book service as a way to realize my "photo a day" dreams.
Here we are July 6th and I am happy to say that I have stuck with this little goal of mine (I just patted myself on the back). I don't typically post everyday but I do make an effort to get on my account at least once a week and post for the previous week. I don't follow any particular posting rules either. There have been 2 or 3 days that I haven't taken any pictures and some days that I couldn't pick just one image so they have more than one. I know I know I'm a crazy rule breaker, a rebel without a cause some might say.
Chatbooks is a subscription company so every time I post 60 pictures (each book contains 60 pages) they will automatically send me a book. Can you even believe how easy this all is? I almost feel like I'm cheating life, after all the years of admiring complicated scrapbooks, I have found a way to record the memories I want to remember forever. SOMEONE PINCH ME, IS THIS REAL??!!
