Remembering 2017, A Family Yearbook

This post is brought to you by Janie & Jack and Pinhole Press. All opinions are my own.

Motherhood, where the days are long, but the years are short. My baby is just about 18 months old, and my oldest is almost four. A new year brings so much hope and excitement, but as a mom, I want to treasure every memory of the year we leave behind.

To remember 2017, I created a yearbook for 2017.  A compilation of all of my favorite memories, our year in review.


In 2017, my nephew Mason was born, we took multiple trips to Disney, including Disney World and Disneyland. Graydon turned 3, and Beckett turned 1. We had professional family photos done for the first time. We visited Legoland and Seaworld in California and Florida. The boys went on their first camping trip. We spent time with family, enjoyed sunny days and went sledding in snow. It was an amazing year!


Pinhole Press has so many unique items for preserving memories. I absolutely love their portrait lay flat books for something extra special. The book is amazing quality, and the prints are beautiful. It’s well made, with high quality, thick pages.

Looking back on my years as a mom, I realize that memories run together. I love that creating a year book allows me to keep these memories organized and easily accessible. Plus, they are great to look back on with the kids. They may not remember every moment, but these photos help them make the most of the memory.


As we remember 2017, we are also jumping into 2018,  ready as ever for another amazing year.

What better way to start the year than looking dapper with Janie and Jack?? The boys are dressed from head to toe with some of my favorite looks from Janie and Jack.

I love the different styles Janie and Jack offer for the boys. They’re unique and fashionable. I really appreciate being able to find something extra special for the boys. Janie and Jack never disappoints!

    Your kiddos are so cute!! I love the idea of creating family year books since all of our pictures just seem to sit around on the computer only to be seen yearly on birthdays! Thanks for the great idea!

    I love Janie & Jack, but as a girl mom I don’t always see all the adorable boys outfits! They are just too cute!

    My daughter was born last year and I definitely want to do a scrapbook or a printed photo book like this for each year. I loved that my parents took a ton of pictures and saved them all for me, and I can’t wait to share that same experience with my daughter!

  8. I love the idea of a family yearbook. I think we might start doing this. I’m grateful for digital pictures, but it’s nice to have something physical to flip through alone or with the kids.
