What to do with all your phone photos

You know how it goes … You take one million photos of your travels/your kids/your adorable puppy and they just sit in an album on your phone. This was totally the case for us with all of our roadtrip photos. As I’ve mentioned before, we took hundreds (and we’re so happy we did!) but we […]
