I remember my parents’ 50th birthdays thinking that they were old! On August 28th I celebrated my 50th and it doesn’t seem that old now. I remember thinking, “I have a long way to go. I got some time before I have to start using those senior discounts.” Well, now that I’m actually here, I’m thinking, “Where has the time gone?” All of my kids have grown up. My daughter is working full time with a bachelor’s degree and my boys are applying for colleges. When my parents were 50, I hadn’t even had AJ and Joey. Angela was almost 4 years old and Tony and I were celebrating 6 years of marriage… and now we’re coming up on 24 years. They say the time flies when you’re having fun. They weren’t wrong. Whoever they are. And now I get to partake in all those awesome discounts for us oldies! Life is good.
As you can imagine, I have a lot of photos – 39,000 to be exact (in one memory vault). And, I didn’t have digital photos until 2006. Looking back over photos brings back so many fun times and family that I miss. I am grateful to have photos of past generations. I have one thing better than photos alone. Because of my hobby and now business, I have stories to go with the photos. I am grateful to have an incredible software that helps me organize and find photos – Historian. And software that gives me the opportunity to display the photos and tell their stories – Artisan.
