Sharing Childhood

Cars wrapping paper

My childhood was filled with grandparents, aunts, uncles, and cousins. They were a huge part of my world and I am ever grateful for that.

But, our children are having an entirely different experience, as my whole family lives in Maine and Craig’s is spread over the West Coast, with his nearest relative nearly three hours away.

Their grandparents and other relatives see only the photos that we email, put on Facebook, or print and mail.

And, well, I’m not so great at printing and sending photos and Facebook is so busy that pictures and videos seem to get lost in the shuffle.

So, our family hasn’t had the opportunity to watch our children grow up.

This is why I’m so grateful for LiveOn.

Now, I can share life events with my family.

I have so many photos that I wasn’t even sure where to start. I began with Katie’s birth, then did Matthew’s, and then I did Matthew’s 2nd birthday. I’m planning to back way up and tackle our wedding and honeymoon next.

What I love is that LiveOn not only stores and helps me to share important memories with those closest to me, but they are committed to preserving my photos and memories long after I’m living. How do I know that? This is their promise…

We promise to keep your memories forever. Not 100 years, not 500 years, but forever. We have an intricate backup system of servers that will act as your personal vault, ensuring your stories are here for all future generations to enjoy. This promise of memory preservation is the number one focus of our company and we will do everything in our power to keep this promise to you.

There are so many other features that I love about LiveOn. I’ll be back in the coming months to tell you more about them! In the meantime, please go poke around. I think you’ll love it.

While I will always wish that we lived closer to family, I’m grateful to LiveOn for offering me a meaningful way to share our memories across the miles.

I’m so excited to share a code with you for LiveOn Rewind, a service that safely converts your VHS tapes to DVDs and digitizes your printed photos. Here’s your code: cgc06

Thank you to LiveOn for this sponsored opportunity to blog about storing and sharing my most important memories with those closest to me. Although story ideas were provided, all thoughts and opinions are my own.

Please LiveOn to learn more about sharing and preserving your most important memories. I was selected for this sponsorship by Clever Girls Collective. All opinions expressed here are my own.

    Okay, I'm intrigued.

    Have you used the LiveOnRewind service yet? Hmmm…I just might have to check that out because I have old VHS tapes with childhood memories that I'm afraid will just get lost over the years!
    Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

    It is hard being so far away from the loved ones, glad LiveOn brings your memories a little closer to them. Imagine the fun your children will have when your parents and in-laws create some videos for them to watch.

    I haven't used it yet, but I plan to round everything up after the holidays and mail it in. I love that they provide the box and shipping label and carefully track your package.
    Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family! :)

    I think you'd love it. :)

  6. Nichole

    My kids will LOVE that. Probably not as much as they love watching themselves on video, but close. ;)
    Happy Thanksgiving!

  7. I am interested in this, but I am not sure it's in the budget right now. Maybe soon :)

    Have you changed some fonts? It's pretty :)

    sounds great – wonder if they accept shipments from south africa! p.s. just popping by from the SITS critique!
