A friend of mine told me that for her birthday she asked her husband for four hours alone to “shutterfly.” I knew exactly what she meant. Like a lot of us she spends weekdays managing her family life and weekends are even busier with trips and events and birthday parties and what have you.

Projects fall by the wayside. So for her birthday she asked her husband to occupy her kids elsewhere for the morning so she could enjoy a cup of coffee and finish her family photo book.
Not exactly a spa day, I know. But if you think about it, how lovely to give yourself some hassle-free, uninterrupted, leisure time to review your pictures and your year – all the holidays and travels, new babies, growing babies, milestones, family gatherings and everyday moments captured.

And then, methodically drag-and-drop over-and-over, like a yogic mantra (say it with me now, drag-and-drop, drag-and-drop, drag-and-drop) until you’re finished. Voila. And you’ve not only had a wonderfully relaxing afternoon of reminiscing, but you can finally check off “make family photo book for 2009” and concentrate on capturing memories for 2010.

And if deciding on the photo book design is your biggest hurdle, just find something you like in the Shutterfly gallery and make it your own. RobinH676 created Our Family 2008, using Shutterfly templates and featuring every day moments and occasion thorughout the year .
