trip down memory lane


I've always been a fan of experiences rather than presents. That might sound strange to some but give me a weekend away, a homemade dinner or picnic at the beach and I'm happy as can be. There is something more meaningful about an experience or giving something homemade that makes the memories that much sweeter.  

That's why when Jimmy's dad, Steve, turned the big 60 we wanted to make him something special, something that has become a family tradition and that he would treasure for years. We compiled photos throughout his life and created a book of memories and a beautiful trip down memory lane to celebrate six great decades. Happy 60th Steve!

I'm sure he'll love his book as much as the one we made for your Dad!! It's a forever keepsake that he'll treasure!

Photos tell a story and stories are meant to be shared. I enjoyed the pictures of him looking at the pictures of himself.

Looks like a beautiful book you made.
