I posted last week about some of my tips for planning an instagram-worthy vacation, but I  have to admit that I’m guilty of keeping all of those vacation pictures and on my phone and camera long after we return home. Remember the good old days when you couldn’t wait to run out to the photo store and get your film processed from vacation? With the instant gratification of digital photography, I rarely actually print out images anymore, they end up just living online. Snapfish offered to let me try out their new website and travel photo books to help me put an end to all of my vacation pictures staying on my iPhone.

I had a ton of fun going through images from two of my favorite trips: our West Texas road trip through Austin, Big Bend, and Marfa, and our cross-country honeymoon road trip.  I had actually printed out tons of images from our honeymoon, and saved them in a big folder with postcards and ephemera that I picked up at each stop along the way. I had grand plans of putting this all in a scrapbook, but that plan never came fruition. So I sat down one recent weekend and scanned all of the postcards, tickets, coasters, matchbooks — you name it — into digital files and uploaded them to the Snapfish photo book tool to create a really gorgeous, printed book of our all of our memories from the trip.
