Do you have boxes of photos waiting for the perfect Saturday to come so you can organize and put them in albums? What about a VHS tape of your wedding, yet your husband threw out the VHS player when DVDs took over our movie viewing.
I have thousands of photos, tapes, negatives, and more sitting in boxes waiting for me to organize them. Well, they’ve been sitting there for nearly ten years so you could say that they are aging gracefully.
Recently, I discovered Legacybox, and I am excited to partner with them to help me get my precious memories digitized and give you the opportunity to win a HUGE closet sized digital package for you to digitize all of your favorite memories.
I loved the Legacybox concept at first sight. They can digitize old movies, reels, photos, film, audio and more. Giving my family a lifetime of memories in a digital format -a format I prefer so I can print, share online, and keep forever in our cloud backup.
The process was easy; all I had to do is fill my Legacybox with my photos, wedding video, and other memories, and ship it off. The most difficult part, I believe, is deciding what to digitize!
In return, you get everything you send them back on DVD’s, or you can upgrade to thumb drive backups. The DVD’s were ok for me because all I had to do after is transfer the files to my Dropbox and I was set!
Living in Louisiana, my family has the very special “evacuation box” for emergencies. This box is full of photo albums, more photos that I just never got around to putting in an album, and our wedding video. If you have never had to evacuate your home for bad weather, you will have to trust me that it’s a very hard decision to choose what your most valuable items are that can fit in the car with your family.
These memories are irreplaceable, from our wedding to the birth of our first child. These are moments we captured before the world of digital photography. Having lived through Hurricane Katrina, we have many family and friends who had already lost all of their photos and videos. So with that in mind, digitizing our memories has been a priority of ours, but I never had the time to scan each photo myself nor the technology to transfer audio or video tapes to a DVD.
So after careful sifting through many (many!) photos, which provided an entire weekend of fun conversations with the kids and lots of stories told, the first round of memories were shipped in our prepaid and labeled Legacybox.
The process was easy and tons of fun. The hardest part was waiting to get my Legacybox back with my memories that will last forever.
