Passing Down My Memories

Thank you to LiveOn for this sponsored opportunity to blog about storing and sharing my most important memories with those closest to me. Although story ideas were provided, all thoughts and opinions are my own.

Did you know that I cry at commercials? Yes, there are a lot that get me a little misty eyed, sometimes it’s just a good commercial, sometimes it’s the kind of day I’m having. One commercial though, gets me every single time, no matter what. This Google commercial in which a father is chronicling the life of his daughter through a series of emails that he writes to her, to an email address he will eventually “give” her.

I can’t think of a more precious gift to give someone. My entire photographic childhood fits into 4 photo boxes, many of the photos worn and unlabeled.

I literally have thousands of pictures of my kids and the oldest is only 2.5 years old. Recently I was introduced to a new product/website that will allow me to put those pictures together in memories that I can someday give to them.

LiveOn is a website devoted to the preservation, sharing and handing down of precious memories. They have developed a system in which your memories can be shared in the now and saved for the future. Let that sink in for just a moment. You can create a memory now and have it saved to be viewed by your future grandchildren.

Not only can I create a timeline of memories for myself but I can also create timelines specifically for my kids. The best part is that I only have to create the memory (upload and title all the pictures) once and then I just add them to their timelines as well. A memory can include pictures and videos, you can caption each of the pictures separately or write a general story to go with the memory. One of the neatest features is the ability to record a voice over to go with the pictures and video. This means that 25 years from now Katelyn can log on and watch all the memories I’ve created for her and hear my voice talking her through all of them.

This is the memory I created of Katelyn’s first birthday party.

I encourage all of you to click over and check out this site.
