One Day: Take the Blur Out of Your Amazing Life

Thank you to our sponsor: OneDay.com

The kids and I are in Rhode Island spending time with my family, getting our beach fix, and stuffing ourselves with lobster rolls. It’s a good Summer filled with perfect days that are already starting to blend together. Hilarious tiny moments quickly fading in my mom brain into another blurry, yet totally awesome, vacation. As I was telling a funny story to Rick on the phone last night, about something Quinn had said on the beach, I had a sudden urge to document it as a perfect 5 year old moment.

Basically Quinn and I were sitting on the beach looking up at the perfectly weathered beach-front houses, a favorite past-time of mine in fact, and she said Mom, look at those houses right on the beach. I asked her if she too thought it would be awesome to have a house right on the beach and she said, “Well, I’m very excited to go visit my cousin Juliette and if I had a beach house like that, I’m afraid I might forget how excited I am to visit her.”

It was such an honest and wise statement from the heart which I knew I would inevitably forget over time.

While I’m a professional blogger, I don’t blog about my family much, and while I love crafting, I’m not into scrapbooking or keeping a journal so lots of these little memories get lost. Coincidentally, we had just been asked to try out a website called OneDay.com. Honestly, it seemed like a lot of work, creating family trees, uploading photos, creating timelines, time capsules and vaults. Phew, it appeared to be for moms much more super than me. But since I had some fresh sweet memories that I wanted to save, I gave it a go.

I uploaded some of my favorite photos directly from Instagram, Facebook and my computer…

One Day neatly dropped them into my timeline as key events, like birthdays and anniversaries, based on a quick questionnaire which I had filled out during enrollment. You can see that I’m just getting started but it’s so easy and fun to play with.

Then I played around with their time capsule feature and created one for Quinn, her birth story, for her to open on her 13th birthday. Because there is nothing pre-teens like more than hearing every detail of how their mother birthed them. HAHAHA. Happy Birthday Quinn! I’m sure she will appreciate it some day.
