Capturing Summer Memories
Posted on July 19 2018
We're in the midst of summer! This season gets us excited about so many events, from trips to the beach to late night movies. So much goes on during these months that the time flies by, and, in the blink of an eye, it’ll be fall. Make sure to capture your summer memories so you can look back on them in the future and smile. Here are some easy ways to document your summer adventures.
- Keep a journal. Purchase a classic journal with a bound cover, and before you go to bed, write down what you and your family did that day or that week. Try to include as many details as possible. For example, thoroughly describe little Zoe’s first reaction to the ocean waves. Recount the look on her face, the sound of her laugh, and the extra bounce in her step. You’ll cherish these details one day.
- Create a scrapbook. Include mementos from visits to the zoo, the park, and your favorite restaurant. Think postcards, leaves, and company branded napkins. Also, place all of the pictures you take here and decorate with stickers and fun labels.
- Start a photo album on Facebook. Not only will you be able to revisit these photos years from now, your family and friends can view them and comment as soon as you upload new pictures!
- Download an app. There are free apps that can easily help you capture your summer experiences. Collageable allows you to turn up to 16 photos into a customizable collage. Mosaic transforms your selfies into a physical photo book, all from your phone. Animoto lets you put together a musical slide show using a song of your choice.
This summer, whether you go on a vacation or simply enjoy the attractions in your hometown, cherish the moments spent with those you love the most. Hopefully, this post gave you some helpful ideas for capturing these moments and making them last a lifetime.
