I usually don’t order books online and I’m usually not checking the mail every day to see if it’s finally delivered out of excitement.
That is until I came across My Social Book.
Their site popped up in my newsfeed one morning (thank you facebook) and I of course had to see what it was all about. I clicked on it, browsed through their fan page for a bit and then went to their site to get more information. I kind of fell in love with the entire thing and KNEW I had to get my very own ‘life book’.
I know to some it will sound silly, getting their entire social media facebook page printed out BUT I think it’s an absolute amazing product…..for a few reasons.
I’m a mom, a wife and a photographer, I do my best to schedule my own family photos and display them proudly in my home. I absolutely LOVE the pictures that are displayed in my home. It’s something for ‘me’ that I get to see every single day.
But what about all the little moments?
I know I post A LOT of little moments on my personal facebook page. My daughters first day of school, date night with my husband, all the fun summer camping trips, my son learning to crawl or getting a new tooth – or my daughter losing her very first tooth. It’s all on facebook and I love that. But I know that things online can easily get deleted or lost. Who knows – maybe in 10 years facebook will be in the past and there might be a new up way to connect and remember all those little moments of life.
In todays world it’s easy to forget to get things printed out and saved. We live in such an online digital world that often we think it’s enough that we have it on our computer, or on our cell phone….until thats lost. (which has happened before, and trust me – I shed quite a few tears over it)
Those little memories I post every day might not mean much now, but how fun will it be to look back on in 20-30 years?!
You can go all the way to 2007!
Yep you heard right, some might not want to but you can get these books from 2007-now
What were you posting about in 2007?
I was a brand new college student, living life at the beach in a tiny little apartment with my golden retriever. A LOT has happened since then
I always wanted to write a book about my life….but i’m not a very good writer so that never officially kicked off. My husband doesn’t have the best memory and I always tell him that I really need to start writing our life book so when were old I can read it to him, haha.
Lucky me – now I don’t have to.
It’s REALLY REALLY REALLY easy. Just go to their site and ‘create a book’ they even let you see the first 20-some pages!
The quality is amazing. I love the glossy hardcover.
My book is 500 pages and is pretty heavy. I got the last two years printed and plan on getting more books printed (going all the way back to 2007)
‘the book of tears’
My mother made my father this giant book as an anniversary present. She included old pictures, their post cards, speeding tickets, their wedding, and so much more. It has little snippets of their life together and up to this day my entire family love sitting down and looking through it. Sometimes we laugh, and sometimes we cry. I think it’s important to not only save your every day memories for yourself (just think how fun it will be to look through when your 80!) but think about your kids getting to look through it with their own kids one day.
I hope some of you will order your own books, I promise you won’t regret it. It’s so worth it
And I know you all want to see some pictures, so here you go!
