I absolutely love looking through the boxes of old photos at my parent’s house. They are all in brown banker boxes that look almost as old as the photos inside of them.
Now, as my children are growing older, they have so many questions: the who, what, where, when, and why of my life, my husband’s life and their lives! Every single photo you look at transports you back to that very moment of your life.

So how can you how to chronicle your life for your kids? I swear moms have memories like elephants, remembering every single little detail of life. But, sometimes we too forget.
For years, I have been using old-fashioned ways to chronicle my children’s lives: journals, scrapbooks, memory books, photo albums. Here’s the problem though: It is so time consuming! Printing pictures out, it’s not “in the moment” and matching photos with your journal entries.
How I Chronicle Life to Share with my Children
I recently started using an awesome app called Nestled Time.
Nestled Time is a storytelling app that encapsulates the joy of having children by collecting the most valuable memories in an open letter for them, and a generation story-telling album for your family. Essentially, it’s the tiniest social network that documents personal treasures and supports you in recreating your child’s world – all online.
It’s perfect because it syncs up to my phone’s photo and video gallery and my social media to allow me to choose which moments I would like to document.
I created 2 worlds: 1 for my son and 1 for my daughter. I can even invite my friends and family to join Nestled Time to review the content I have created on the app.
On Nestled Time you can organize your memories and photos by location and date, edit photos, create unlimited worlds, store unlimited photos and videos.
I wish I had the Nestled Time app when I was pregnant! It would have been such an awesome story to chronicle from the moment I found out I was pregnant with ultrasound and belly pics, the birth, and all of the moments and milestones that happen thereafter!
