Mom before me

Chapa Family Hammond, IN 1982

Just last week my dad sent me a link to a bunch of family photos that he had scanned. One photo in particular stuck out to me. It was my grandmother holding my cousin Robyn, probably 35 years ago. The early 1980’s and all the women are in heels. My Tia Isabel is wearing what looks like a chambray romper (want!) and my mom is looking very lady like in black and white asymmetrical designed dress with white heeled sandals. I would love to find both of these looks look in my own closet, I wish I could see their purses and accessories closer.

New Favorite App

printshop app

I recently discovered the app PrintShop. It is an app for your phone that allows you to import any images from your iPhone, Facebook or Instagram and print them into very quality photos prints. Just on Friday I ordered 16 4 x 6 photos on quality matte photo paper for $10 and they just arrived yesterday- Monday.

I decided it would be fun to print some photos from Mario’s first few days on planet earth.

We rarely have printed photos anymore around the house. With Instagram and Facebook and all of the other photo sharing sites it has become less customary to have real prints.

PrintShop does multiple sizes at great value. I actually ordered the largest size for some photos in the nursery and around the house early in December.

Looking forward to continuing to order from PrintShop and save more memories of this guy’s first year & send photos every so often to the great grandparents who live out of state.

Wish I had some sort of discount or promo code for you guys but this is just a personal endorsement with no strings attached & who are we kidding I don’t have that kind of klout yet! Anyone else have some favorite photo apps for printing?
