Remember Special Times with Photos

Special Occasions are great times to take photos.  They also make great subjects for your writing.  I have written several pages about special times for our family and included our family photos on the pages.  We have a family christening dress that has been worn by all of the female members of three generations.  I found writing a page to be a great way to write about the dress and share it with my children and nieces and nephews.  Here is a link to the page I wrote about the dress.
Christening Dress


Many online writers like to write  about their parents.  It is a great way to put those memories from the past in writing.  When my Mother died last March my sister made copies of the lens that I wrote on Mother to have available for visitors at the funeral home.   We also sent copies to some of our out of town relatives.  Everyone said they really appreciated the piece.  My Mom a Very Special Lady










My grandchildren all live several hours away from me in another state so it is a big treat for all of us when they come to stay with us during the summer break from school.  We try to make this time special with visits to places around St. Louis where we live and special times with Grandma and Grandpa.  In some years I will make a photo book for them on Shutterfly and other times I write about the experience on Hubpages and include lots of photos.

Next time you are searching for a subject to write about, consider some of those special family memories and put them on a page to share with others.

  1. I hadn't realized it before, but you have truly created a unique family scrapbook on Squidoo that can, and has been, easily shared with family and friends! I remember that christening dress article and how I felt so very close to Mary Katherine, as if she were a member of my own family. I also met your mother through your articles and photos and I know she was a very special lady. Somehow, I have previously missed reading your Summer Fun with Grandchildren, but I do remember a owl hunt :) I have thoroughly enjoyed getting to know your grandchildren and family over the years through your lenses and your photos. Now, I must go see what other summer fun you have been up to without me.

  2. I agree that Squidoo is a perfect platform for storytelling about the family that everyone is sure to enjoy, family or not! You have such fun with your granddaughters and I do enjoy the visits you share.
