At the end of every year I print our yearbook, cleverly titled Forgacs Family Photobook from my favorite website: Shutterfly.
2012, however, has been my most disorganized year. That's the reason for the "ugh" in the title.
Most years I have updated the book at the end of each month so I can easily recall the big and (more importantly) little moments from the month. I like to write a little blurb to accompany each month's entry and most years leave me feeling restricted by the 100 page limit (which, coincidentally, I don't think exists anymore!)
This year, after returning to work (unhappily) in January - I just couldn't do it. The yearbook is still of utmost importance to me, but I couldn't drag myself away from my girls to keep it updated. And, I also couldn't stay awake after they went to sleep to update it. Thus I found myself at the end of the year staring at a very incomplete book.
I am seriously bummed about this. But, I'm also trying to give myself adequate credit for everything I did do over that past 12 months.
I was also thrilled to use Shutterfly's Storyboard for the first time which made it possible for me to complete our 2012 book in a timely manner! This was a super cool addition to what Shutterfly already does really well! Great for busy people! Although I am motivated to produce a better 2013 book, one that I will update monthly, but I am also proud of my 2012 book once I consider everything else that was going on in our lives.
So without further ado, I present to you the best 2012 book I could do (click on link):
