Family memories are some of the best gifts we can give each other in this world. It is why I do what I do on this blog. After all, our slogan is Saving Family Memories on Click at a Time. These days it is easier than ever to capture current moments on film. But what about the olden days when we were little, or better yet-when our parents were younger? Technology was not as advanced then and we relied heavily on the memories we stored in our hearts rather than a selfie that all can see.
That is why I am so excited to share StoryWorth with you all today!
Now that Mother’s Day is literally a few days away, I bet a few of you are still wondering what you should get mom. I am sure that many of you can agree that some moms are so hard to buy for. I know my mom has everything and needs nothing. It is a catch 22 with her when it comes to holidays. However, I think I might just have the perfect solution this year and it is called StoryWorth.
My dad in Portugal circa 1964
Some of my favorite memories as a child were listening to my parent reminiscence about the good old days. A lot of these moments came when I was a young girl sitting at the foot of my father or mother’s chair. I was a child who had not even remotely discovered who I was myself so they really toned things down.

However, now that my dad is gone I feel like I missed out on knowing him. I never got to find out who his first girlfriend was, or what he thought of America when he migrated here. I will ever know his favorite food or most cherished memory.
My late father and daughter circa 2013
I don’t know about you but this makes me really sad-that is why I want to purchase StoryWorth for my mother and get to truly know her as a person. We all know our mothers as the givers of life, but many of us miss out on knowing them as people.

I am especially interested in my mom’s young adult life and what she aspired to be when she got older. Sometimes, questions like these are hard to answer on the spot, but StoryWorth makes it so easy.
Here is how StoryWorth works:
Each week the folks at StoryWorth will send your mom a new question that you probably never knew the answer to.
Your mom then writes a story about the specific question asked. She can also record it.
After a full year, all your mom’s entries are bound into a beautiful keepsake book.
This means you can get to treasure your mom’s story for a lifetime! This is a mega cool gift and way to reconnect with your mother or father!
Here are some sample questions for StoryWorth:
How did you choose your children’s names?
Have you ever won anything?
What makes you happy?
What would you change about your childhood?
What was your parents’ relationship like?
What is one of your favorite memories of your mother?
You can check out an example of StoryWorth on their official site.
