As my iPhone has become more and more attached to my hand in recent years (and I know you can relate), I’ve loved taking random off the cuff photos of the everyday. Especially when I’m traveling! Whether it’s a cocktail that’s so tasty I want to try and remember it to recreate at home or a meal so good it’s the stuff legends are made of, or heck, even just a gorgeous sunset over the Manhattan skyline with the perfect silhouette of the Chrysler Building, I love having the ease of capturing photos to commit those little moments, sights and scenes to memory. What I’m really bad at? Doing anything with those photos once they’re on my phone. They usually just sit there until I want to show someone something I recently saw or did and then I’m sifting through literally 1000s of photos trying to find the one. No bueno.
Take my recent trip to New York for the National Stationery Show for example! From dinner out with the girls to grab my favoritest of all veggie burgers (made with beets!) at Five Napkin Burger, to strolling through the Grand Central Market hunting for a late night snack, to spending our last afternoon lounging around Bryant Park, my recent travel to the city packed a whole lot of work, but also several quick side adventures that are what make the trip so memorable each year. Here’s a little peek at my National Stationery Show travels – minus the paper!
Oh, yup, I just busted out a slideshow on you, courtesy of Disney’s brand new Story app that I had the pleasure of trying out over the last month or so. Designed with memory making and keepsaking in mind, Disney’s new app is all about capturing and savoring those special little moments that happen everyday, whether lounging around at home or traveling the streets of Manhattan. (Or having a family car wash on the fly and ending up with two soaked-to-the-bones kids and two not-so-very clean cars. But that’s a story for another day!) The app allows you to make really sweet little e-photobooks to bundle all those photos and memories into one place, telling the story of your day to day adventures in a way that’s really easy to share with friends and family either by email or on Facebook. You can add captions, rearrange and crop images, and change themes to create the story you want to tell. Truth be told, it’s pretty gosh darn addicting! And it seemed like the perfect way to share with you a bit more from my trip to New York, too!
