Ah, Valentine’s Day….such sweet memories. It’s no wonder I love this day of LOVE so much. It was 8 years ago that the hubs proposed to me in a very special way in London and then whisked me off to New York following his proposal and on this day we walked into Tiffany’s and I picked out my engagement ring. And now, seeing the amazing Father he is to our kids makes this day even more special. Check out this adorable baby-wearin’ daddy when Emma was just born with sippy cup in one pocket and Luke’s toys in the other. Fatherhood just looks SO good on him! He reads my blog every day, and it just goes to show how supportive he is of all the crazy ideas I have! He did, after all, move here from London away from all his friends and family to be with me. Now that is LOVE. Yes, I’m pretty cheeseball but I seriously love this guy. 🙂 Yes, he will most likely kill me for posting this. 🙂
Now, onto other less mushy fun V-Day topics! I recently saw an app called Groove Book and couldn’t wait to try it out. What is the Groove Book? Simply put…it is bringing me pure JOY from all the pictures I take on my iPhone. I currently have 1,915 pictures on my phone. I am constantly sending pictures to family and friends all over the world and it keeps us connected so I am always snapping fun moments of our day to send to loved ones. For only $2.99 a month, you sign up with Groove Book through your app store on your smart phone and you upload 100 pictures. About 10 days later this beauty comes in the mail.
It’s great quality 4×6 pictures and I’m SO happy to start collecting these books every month instead of the more expensive time consuming photo books, which are still great for special occasions. You could even do one book for each kid for the year if you wanted, the possibilities are endless! Did I mention it was $2.99 for 100 pictures each month?! NO shipping. NO extra fees. NO strings attached. That’s it! You can’t get pictures printed anywhere for that cheap! It comes right to your door and you can even send them to friends and family as a wonderful gift.
If you only want to try it once, you can stop at any time. The quality is pretty good I think, some of the pictures are blurry because they are taken on my iphone and if you don’t hold it perfectly still they do sometimes take blurry pics. The pictures are all perforated on the edges as well so you can take any of them out for albums, etc. If you want to try it out, your first book is FREE…on ME!
