Memories Captured

Wrapped inside the gift of blogging is the chance to capture our moments -our lives, our children, our memories- with our words and our pictures.

And pretzel twisted to that? Is sharing what we’ve captured with our community.

Alison and I swoon for these Memories Captured and would love to place them in our pockets, cozily saved for another day.

The next best thing to that? Is to create a link up for Memories Captured with you!

Alison wrote a letter to her son which led me to write a version of my own which led us to finding this stunning example on pinterest which led us right here.

We want you to capture a moment or a someone that you love in words and photos and share them with us. It’s as simple as that. You capture, we swoon. Choose any format that speaks to you and capture away.

The linky will be open December 5th through December 9th.

I captured Chloe and her favorite everythings right here using (the free version) of picnik and seeing this? Warms my heart over- twice.

Now, it’s your turn! Grab the button below, a photo, and your words, and come back on Monday the 5th to link up! We can’t wait to see what you capture!

We’re thrilled to announce that we’re partnering with the fabulous Canvas Press! They’ll generously give one linker a 16 x 20 photo canvas for their Memory Captured!

A winner will be randomly picked and announced Friday evening, December 9th.
