Several years ago, when Pinterest was just becoming popular, my sister in law, Sara, found this super cute idea. I loved how you could get a good feel for who the child was in just a matter of seconds. With a picture and a grouping of their favorite things all together in one place, it was a good way to summarize their personality and freeze that moment in time.
I wish I could keep them little, but since I don’t have that superpower, at least this way I can look back and remember that at age 3 Chase loved spinning in circles until he fell down, or at age 4 he loved hearing firemen stories each night before bed. These are things I think I’ll never forget, but surprisingly, my brain just can’t hold as much information as I thought it could.
I’ve done a “Loves” picture for each boy ever since she shared this idea, and I plan to do it for many more years to come. I create mine in Photoshop Elements, but you could also do it on picmonkey.com or any other program that would allow you to insert words over a photo. Here are some of the past “Loves” I have created.
