We Love Knowing Someone Cares
Imagine that someone you love receives a gift from you.
Immediately, they're filled with the warmth that comes from knowing you thought of them.
As they open your gift, they see that it's a beautiful photo book dedicated to them. Imagine how touched they'll feel!
They open the book and read the first page. It has photos and a story that's all about special times you've spent together, or a special event that you've captured in words and pictures. They realize that you've gathered those memories like a rare bouquet of flowers.
Every page is thick, lustrous, and professionally printed. It's a book made to last. It's not your ordinary gift; it's a testament to how much you care.
You may say, "So what is the Lasting Story blog for? And how do I write a story? I don't know where to start!!"
This blog is designed to help you tell your story. I also invite you to email me at with any questions, and I'll be happy to answer them! My goal is to make it as easy and fun as possible.
Each blog entry explains storytelling in one of three ways:
- Giving examples of how to approach different kinds of Lasting Story Photo Books (e.g., Heritage, Birthday, Travel)
- Telling stories about my own life to give you a feel for how to write about yours.
- Giving you a Behind the Scenes look at how I design a Lasting Story Photo Book.
You've made it this far. Here's to your lasting story!Linda Freeman
At the Golden Globes earlier this month, Glenn Close said, "We are women and nurturers . . . we have our children, and our husbands if we are lucky enough, our partners, whoever, But we have to find personal fulfillment. We have to follow our dreams." This resonated with many men and women who were watching.
Mom and I also loved Broadway shows, and she started taking piano lessons when she was 65.
