One thing every mother should do (often)

November 29, 2010

Back up your photos!!!

We made a photo backup in the beginning of December 2009.  Here’s the last one from that backup:

Our harddrive crashed in April 2010.  Here’s one of the first photos from after that crash:

I lost four months of photos of my beautiful girls (SO grateful it wasn’t more!).  I just went back to find pictures of last year’s (Bubbles’ first) Christmas tree and then I remembered that the photos aren’t there.  A similar scenario has happened several times, and it makes me sad every time.

Back up your photos!!!

    Oh, that hits me right in the gut! I know how you feel! We recently had a flood and the first thing I thought to myself was THANK GOD nothing sentimental got ruined! I have to remember to not put anything on the floor too! :)
    Thanks for coming by Sofia’s Ideas, hope to see you back there soon?
