maternity book

on our last trip to cincinnati we spent an evening in my parents living room looking through old family photos. most of my old photos sit in boxes inside boxes in a storage unit and haven't seen light for years. this is what makes digital cameras, iPhoto, and photo hosting websites so amazing as they make these memories easily organized and accessible. however; i can't help but feel sad over the loss of the photo album. similar to the comforting smell of old books there is something so lovely about flipping through the yellowed pages of a photo album. and as the archives of images on my computer grows and grows i want my daughter to have something tangible to tell her the story of our life together.

we made a picture book from our wedding using blurb's booksmart application and i was so happy with how it turned out that i compiled all the bump pictures and letters to eleanor to make a book chronicling my pregnancy. i plan to make another book for her marking the major milestones of her first year with photos and more little notes to her.
