Last week while in Virginia visiting family, Trent & I took off on our own for a little adventure leaving our son with his grandparents and uncle. I took quite a few photos with both my iPhone and DSLR. In the past week, I’ve uploaded them and created this 5×7 photo book on Shutterfly. This is the fastest I’ve ever created a photo book and only 2nd time I’ve done so using Shutterfly’s components exclusively (usually I upload full pages I’ve created in Photoshop). I started with one of the template books (Pictogram) and used a mixture of idea pages as well as created a few of my own.

It was easy and a lot of fun to make. Best of all, we have a way to look back on this little mini-vacation for two. Something that’s a rare event now that we’re parents.

Do you document your “adults only” vacations?

    Great way to quickly preserve your trip memories. I've always wanted to try making an online photo book.

    I highly recommend the book What Was Lost: A Christian Journey through Miscarriage for any woman of faith who has suffered a miscarriage or anyone wanting to gain insight to help comfort a spouse, friend, sister, daughter, etc.
