So, I have been getting a little nostalgic lately :-)
This grandparent wall is my favorite photo gallery in my home. Every time I walk by it I smile and think of the life my grandparents have lived. I am also reminded how richly blessed I was/am to learn and be loved by them for so many years.
Photos of my Grandparents when they were kids!
My Grandpa and Grandma on my mom's side. My grandma was an artist and would give me lots of fun art lessons.
This is my FAVORITE photo because it captures the wittiness in my grandpa's smile and the warmth and kindness in his eyes. He is still that person today. :-)
My Opa (grandpa) and his sister
I count every day a blessing to still have my Opa around.
He is the world's greatest Opa and YES, he reads my blog - Hi Opa :-)

I know it would be odd to have every wall in my house be covered in family photographs :-) so the next best thing is to put them in a nice, professional looking photo book.
You can include both PHOTOS and STORIES to create a safe record of your family that can be passed on, and shared with future generations. They make the best coffee table discussion pieces too.
There aren't words to describe how much all of these pictures mean!! My children LOVE looking through photo books :-)
My husband's grandparents on his dad's side. I'm not quite sure what to think of that ruffle collar ;-)
Honestly, don't you love that swimsuit!
My husband's grandma on his mom's side. She looks a lot like Judy Garland to me :-)
Hopefully this post has been an encouragement to collect some photos so that you can make a photo gallery or photo book too. :-)
And.........since we're talking about grandparents and preserving memories, my good friend wrote the BEST blog post about a notebook she made for her grandma to fill out. It's such a wonderful idea. I hope you guys click on over there and read what she did.....just a warning.....you may get a little teary eyed (in a good way!!!)
