I’ve mentioned that my family is very into creating traditions and making memories. One tradition that I’ve done every year since we were married is to create a Shutterfly photo calendar. Shutterfly has come a long way in improving the options since our first calendar seven years ago.


There are many great templates and designs to choose from and you can even customize the actual calendar page with important dates and photos. We have a big family so I’m able to put all our important birthday and anniversaries on there and fill the date with a photo of the person we celebrate.


Each month, the kids are super excited to “turn the page” and see the memories on the new month. We use it as a way to look back and be grateful for the wonderful things we’ve been able to do together. For example, January 2012 features photos and memories from January 2011.

If you’re feeling inspired, now is the time to make your own! Shutterfly has an “up to 40% off” sale through January 11 and if you use code SHIP30, you get free shipping on orders over $30. Our 2012 calendar is already on it’s way!
