Six Word Fridays: looking forward


Looking forward requires a measured approach

One that considers distance already travelled

To help you navigate next steps

Taking gains and losses into consideration

As you see the path ahead

Celebrating your journey in marked time

New Year. New Six Word Friday posts!

This post is inspired by my new-found love of Keepsy – a photo album site that allows you to create awesome photo albums and calendars using your digital photos, including those uploaded to Instagram.

I tested the service last month – making a 2012 photo calendar using my favourite Instagram photos of DD and DH taken over the past year.  I was a bit doubtful about how well the photo quality would turn out, but wow. The results were so awesome that I promptly gave the calendar away to DD’s grandparents and ordered a couple more for me and DH.

Keepsy offers a super easy interface to select and organize your photos, and quick delivery too. Here’s a couple snapshots of the calendar I created:

You can’t really tell in the above images but trust me when I say the image quality of the calendar in real life is impressive.

I’m looking forward to capturing lots more memories via Instagram in the year ahead, and making another photo calendar  for 2013.

    Love how you’ve woven the notion of learning from the past together with looking ahead. And it’s true, having this year’s calendar with last year’s pics really does that!

      Thanks Adrienne,

      The calendar is full of such great memories, and it makes me think of all the great memories to come. 🙂

    I love celebrating as I move along – – wonderful, as the journey really is the most important part of “living”
