The summer holidays are here, a chance for our family to have days out and do things we wouldn’t normally get chance to do when we’re in the usual pattern of going to work and following our usual work, eat, sleep routine. The summer holidays are a chance to visit new places and to really relish and enjoy watching our three year old, Olly enjoy them for the first time. What better way to mark the occasion than to send a postcard.
This Summer we’ve been working with Touchnote to record our most memorable days out in the form of a personalised postcard. Through a free downloadable app on their smartphone (or computer), users can create their very own personalised postcards featuring their own holiday and day out photographs and send them to anywhere in the world for a small fee.
Over the last few weeks we’ve been able to take Olly on a variety of family days out. We’ve been to Legoland Windsor, we’ve been to Warwick Castle, we’ve been to the Shropshire Lavender Fields, he’s been to the Walsall Football Club open training session and met all the players and we’ve had a lovely day out at our friends wedding. Keep your eyes peeled for full blog posts showing what we got up too, coming soon.
As with any event, function or ‘do’ that our family takes part in, I take photographs, I take a lot of photographs all of the time. I love to take photographs to capture the moment, the smiles and the feelings of enjoying something new, and taking in a new experience. There have been a lot of photographs taken on my iPhone so making the postcards and sending them to Olly has been really fantastic. Seeing his reaction to them landing on the doormat has been wonderful too, he’s really treasured them and has proudly kept them on his notice board to look at.
