How do you want to reflect on your Summer Memories?

Have you taken a big trip this summer?  Or, some other special event happened this summer?  Did you take photos, or collect any memorabilia?

Why did you take photos in the first place?  For most it’s to capture the moment, and preserve those memories.  Why bother taking the pictures if you do not put them into something where you can enjoy them?  Well, here’s a few suggestions for keeping up with those photos so you’re not wondering where they are in a year or so down the road.

Happy Father’s Day

Father's Day fishing

In honor of Father’s Day, how about remembering a lesson your dad taught you?

There were lots of lessons my dad tried to teach me. One of those lessons was how to take a hook out of a fish. That didn’t go well as a kid. But when I had my own child, I had to call up my dad because I was so happy when I had to take the hook out.  And put those nasty worms on the hook as well.
So, for this Father’s Day, what were some of the lessons your dad tried to instill in you?  Be sure to cherish those memories, ask questions and pass them on because you never know when the dad in your life won’t be there anymore.
I love you Daddy!  I can only imagine you must be fishing with your dad today.
