My Magic Moment

Do you see my boys? They are not fighting, wrestling or arguing. They are holding hands, united in their mission: to get mama to buy them an ice cream after an afternoon of playing at the park. THAT is a magic moment around here. 

Taken with my iPhone on instagram, this is one of my favorite pics of the summer. 

I don't want to lose it.

Y'all? I am so unorganized. My photos are all over the place: on my computer, picasa, facebook, shutterfly, and instagram.  I needed some help!   Then I was invited to try ThisLife, which helps organize all your photos.  And once I started playing around with ThisLife and seeing what it could do, I was hooked. If it can help me, it can help anyone. 

ThisLife is a Magic Box that will gather, improve, and organize your photos/videos for you in a chronological timeline. It even fixes your photos and has cool features like facial recognition, to help you search for the photo you are looking for.  Trying to find a picture of me usually takes me a while, since I'm rarely in front of the camera. But, I can do a search for any pic that I'm actually in and easily find those when I need a pic to use for something like my twitter or facebook profile. 

Those photos I had stored all over the place? ThisLife took all of them and organized them for me.  Oh, and any new pic that I take using instagram? I have my account set up that it automatically gets safely stored in the cloud. Don't worry, you choose what programs will sync to your ThisLife account. 

If only ThisLife could organize the rest of my life as easily as it did my photos. 

Want to check it out for yourself? ThisLife is offering my readers a 6-month trial of their Adventure Box package, which will house and organize up to 20,000 photos. Go check out the ThisLife free trial today

Like ThisLife on facebook and follow them on twitter, too. 

ThisLife sponsored my post today. I received compensation and a free trial service in exchange for telling my story.  And btw, if you like them on facebook, please talk to them- I am part of the team posting over there!

That is a great pic and I am so trying that service. I have pictures everywhere and need one spot to find them all

All 3 boys in one pic! Now if only you were in it with them! Such a wonderful picture - a true portrait of happy kids!

So this is not an APP for the phone, but an online service? (Though I do like magic box). I am sooooo bad. I've stopped taking pics because I can't get mine organized and that just makes me feel yucky. These days are meant to be captured on film, not avoided because I have too many pics! Totally going to check them out. Thanks!

That photo of the boys is a treasure, really adorable.

You mean I'm not the only person who has photo's all over the place?

I feel better now!

Ice cream really does unite us all.

I mean, has anybody tried that in the middle east? 'Cause maybe they haven't been introduced to ice cream yet, having assumed it would just melt in the heat.

This could be world changing.

I've been using DropBox to streamline things between systems. ThisLife sounds like something to check out though.

love that pic of the boys!! it would look great enlarged!

I just figured out how to get my pic off my phone recently..my 6 yr old showed me. I haven't even thought about where to store them yet.

I definitely need some way to organize the bazillions of pictures I take.. Thanks for the recommendation!

Great picture! Also, I develop my pictures about once a year, it's a nightmare!

What a great picture! I've stopped printing out the pictures (except for a select few). Instead I make photo books in 6 month increments. I use My Publisher to do this. It's fantastic.

what a great photo! I usually only have photos in two places - on my computer or on my IPhone - so I don't know how much I'd use a program like this, but I'll definitely check it out! :)

I could totally go for something like that--I always feel like my pics are all over the place.

Also, that is just an adorable picture of your boys :) So precious!

I have to agree, that is a wonderful photo. It looks like an ad for something.

With 2 cameras now, and a phone that takes pix mine are also all over the place!

It's moments like that when I know I'm doing something right...
and then I want another baby...
but five minutes later it's back to the usual chaos....
great shot!

My youngest claims that I don't have any pictures of her because they are all on assorteds dvds, computers, etc. We have almost none printed.

She is horribly bitter about it. :)
