For the past few weeks I've been lost in the archives of our photo library. With over 38,000+ digital images from the past eight years, I've dedicated myself to finishing ALL of our family albums before the end of the month! So far I have deleted over 7,000 images and collected all of the pictures for three of the five yearly albums I still have left to complete.
Looking back over the years, I am so grateful when I come across the precious few group shots of friends and family. It's such a beautiful reminder of the many loving friendships and family members we are blessed with. These are the only ones we have for our 2009 and 2010 albums and each one on average has over 300 images.
I sure hope that in years to come our albums will be flooded with tangible memories of time spent with family and friends. So no matter how awkward or tedious it may be to get out the camera and gather our loved one together for a group shot...its certainly worth it.
