A year in photos, a mountain of memories

A year in photos, a mountain of memories

Whilst Ella has had a epic sleep this morning, I’ve been able to tackle some washing, clean the house and start to sift through the mountain of photos that we have amassed since Ella was born. Over 5000 shots have been taken (is that normal?), and since acquiring a new computer, I thought it was time that I went through the snapshots and edited it down to a sensible amount. Needless to say it’s been a pretty amazing, challenging and joyous time and looking through these photos has made me pretty emotional. I started this blog because we simply do not store photos like the way we used to. I have back ups or back ups of photos, downloaded from my camera with the hope of making a photo album each year. I am determined to stick to this and hope that as her birthday draw closer each year, I can take the time to sift through them and choose the best ones to print and keep. Here’s hoping that she continues to have a long morning (or afternoon) sleep every now and then, so I can get the chance to look through them and smile….

And for those of you who might be wondering how I went? Well so far, I’ve reduced over 5000 shots to 292….a pretty good effort I think! (Mind you, that doesn’t include shots taken since the end of January though) 🙂
