Memories Captured Link Up!

posted in: Link Up, Memories Captured 0 comments

Welcome to the Memories Captured link up! I’m so proud to be hosting this with the wonderful Galit of These Little Waves.

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.

Galit 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!

I wrote a  letter to my son which led Galit to write a version of her own which led us to finding this creative example onPinterest which led us right here.

We want you to capture something or 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.

This is mine, one of my favorite pictures of Monkey and my hopes and wishes for him (and he’s turning 2 in just over 3 weeks! )

Your turn! And, you can take a picture of anything or anyone, it doesn’t have to be kids!

We’re partnering with the fabulous Canvas Press and they will generously give one linker a 16 x 20 photo canvas! A winner will be randomly picked and announced Friday evening, the 9th.

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