Have you watched the Disney movie CoCo? Earlier this summer, my boys and I watched this movie and it was a true treat. We begin watching the movie without any expectations or knowing anything about the movie. I just kept hearing that it was a great movie to watch. So I finally broke down and watched the movie (especially since we've been having raining afternoon and evening in Northern Virginia).
Of course you gotta have popcorn while watching movies, so my boys popped a couple of bags and we sat down to watch the movie. I'm not going to tell you the plot, just in case you haven't seen it, but it was well worth watching. By the end of the movie, I was ready to watch it again, and we did a couple days later.
By the end, it's very obvious the movie is showing us the importance of family and the power print have on our family. We all know technology is constantly changing. The only thing that doesn't change is a framed portrait of our loved ones. There's no need for a media device or electricity to view our family pictures. We simply look at our family walls or our living room table and we can look upon and reflect on the people who have had a significant impact on our lives.
After all of this, I simply want to remind you to print your family's pictures. Having them in digital format is nice, but it doesn't have the same impact as seeing them printed. Every time you have your family portrait taken, you should have at least one portrait framed and placed on the walls of your home or placed in an album. Your children and grandchildren will treasure those portraits.
I cherish having this picture on our fireplace; it's a picture of both of my children's grandmothers. Can you imagine the significance years later? I totally do, that's why I wanted to ensure this portrait was taken, printed, and framed.
Don't overlook your legacy!
