I love spring time. The spring is a very beautiful and magical time for me with all the flowers and trees blooming – the colors blazing after the long, white winter. I love being able to get outside, and enjoy the warm weather. Plus my kids are always super excited to not have to be covered in coats, boots and hats after a winter of being forced into them.
One of my favorite things about spring is listening to all the birds. I have always lived “out of the way” in the country, and to me, Spring has really arrived when all the birds do. Seeing the Robins hunting for worms, and waking up to the birds singing is one thing that I really do treasure.
This will be a very special Spring for us this year, because it marks the end of my daughter being a preschooler. She will be starting kindergarten in the fall, and we will be having a huge party to celebrate her transition into being a new “big girl”!
Being the picture crazed mom that I am, I need a great way to preserve and display the memories from this day. Shutterfly provides so many wonderful products that I could sit and browse their website all day. I adore their photo books – and love that they have made creating one even easier! You can go through and enter and arrange all of the photos yourself, or you can use their new program where all you have to do is upload the photos and it will create the book for you.
Being as we will need to let our family and friends know about our “big girl” party, I will also need some fantastic graduation announcements! Shutterfly offers tons of great announcements – all of which can be personalized with photos (and who doesn’t love that?!).
ONE lucky MomVantage reader will received their own 8X8 Shutterfly Photo Book!
