Flashback Friday is running in its forth week now and I am already absolutely hooked to it. I just love the fact that so many bloggers open their photo albums to share their memories with each other. Looking at old photographs instantly makes me walk down memory lane – even when I am looking at someone else’s pictures I start comparing them with own memories. Have I ever been in a similar place? Who was I with? What did we do and what did I feel? It’s amazing how many emotions can come up when I am looking at a simple piece of paper or (in this more and more modern world) at a digitalised copy of a photograph.
The most adorable pictures for me are baby pictures and you can be sure, that once our little girl is born, there’ll be plenty of them. Back when I was a baby the most common thing to do was sticking your photos into a photo album or a picture frame. Today there are so many other great ways of creating memories that last. You can print canvases, mugs or you can even create calendars. Calendars make great gifts – I know for sure that my nan would be seriously disappointed if she didn’t get a calendar with photos of her first great grandchild – and they allow you to share your memories with your near and dear ones.
