So there’s always lots of resolution talk at the beginning of the year… something like eat healthier, exercise more, spend less money, for example. We always have great intentions, but more often than not, they fall through and the guilt sets in. This year, I have one FUN and EASY resolution that I just know you can keep!
Let's make 2014 the year to ENJOY your photos again!!! I know you’re out there taking loads and loads of photos, not only of special events, but also of the everyday minutiae of your life. But are you taking any time to ENJOY them??? More than likely not. We are taking more photos than ever before, yet enjoying them less. And I want 2014 to be the year that changes.
You’ll be surprised to hear me say this, but forget the fancy digital photo books, scrapbooks and slideshows for a minute. Most of us get overwhelmed trying to figure out where to start, not to mention finding the time to design them. So why not go old-school and print a batch of your favorite photos, throw them into a traditional album (Michael’s has great archival quality ones!) and cuddle up on the couch to enjoy the memories with your family? Or pick your favorite photo from the holidays and have it printed on a large format canvas to hang on your wall? Or even print a large format photo and frame it, like the old days? Another great place to enjoy your favorite photos is on the case of your mobile devices. Personally, I love using our photo mugs from Shutterfly which take NO time at all to design and order. And seeing the smiling faces of our kids on my tea cup first thing in the morning makes me happy, especially when the faces staring at me from the kitchen table aren’t so cheerful. ;)
These are just a few quick and easy ways to start enjoying your photos in 2014. Feel free to add your ideas in the comments below.
And please, I'm begging you, find a way to start enjoying your photos again. I guarantee you won’t regret it!
