As time flies by and our children grow up, we soon realise that documenting the memories is so important. There is nothing I love more than looking back on photos and that’s why I’ll never regret being the mum behind the camera. I started this blog as a way to document my children’s firsts and I am so glad I did because it means that in years to come I can look back on life and show my girls what we used to get up to. I’ve not been amazing with documenting my pregnancy this time round but I have definetely tried and I hope to document the birth, the newborn days and life with two as much as possible.
I absolutely love social media, not only is it part of my job but it is also the place where most of our memories are shared. I’ve written a few letters to my daughter on my blog before but I recently came across an app called TimeSpring that I wanted to share with you all. Its an app that allows you to send time released messages meaning that I can write a letter and my girls could receive it on a date in the future that I choose. How amazing is that! It doesn’t matter that they’re still young and aren’t anywhere near old enough to set up email addresses, I can set up accounts for them and build it all up, adding an email address in the future.
All you have to do is download the app from the play store, create an account adding your friends or family (in my instance, I added both of my girls) write a message and then schedule it for a future date.
I’ve always been a sucker for diaries, scrapbooks, photo albums – anything with sentimental value really but I share the majority of my life online and love to document our memories to look back on. I tried my hardest to fill out a pregnancy journal with Alyssia but totally lost track and didn’t ever complete it, with this new app I can write down memories from my pregnancy for the girls to look back on in the future and I just love the idea of that. Not only can you send messages but you can also upload photographs & videos too. It’s also a great way of getting the grandparents involved, all they have to do is download the app and accept your invitation to receive, send or share on the app. This is also great if you have family who don’t live nearby, or if for example nanny wanted to join in and send letters and photographs to the girls.
If you’d like to find out more about TimeSpring then you can visit timespring.com or download the app over on the AppStore or GooglePlay. Please note that this is a free app but charges apply for sending video messages.
