Capture Important Family Information This Holiday Season

“How do we remember a significant person in our lives when they are no longer with us? Who they were, what they held dear, what they thought, what they sounded like are all things we can capture while they are living and reflect back in appreciation that they live on with us …” says Lynn Lambrecht creator of The Living Planner.

It’s at this time of year, during the holidays of Thanksgiving and through the end of the year, when many spend time with family.  It’s time when we catch up with one another and have conversations – share stories.  For some of us (like me), it’s easy to keep track and record these memories through scrapbooking and uploading to my Forever account.  For most, the photos and videos are being taken and shared but then what?  And what about the important stuff?  You know, those harder ‘life’ questions?

Let’s consider some questions you can enjoy during Thanksgiving.  Feel free to use your phone to audio or video record answers.

  1. What is your favorite song  Tell us about it. *
  2. If you had one thing to “do over”, what would it be and why.  Tell us about it. *
  3. How do you wish to be remembered/eulogized?  Tell us about it. *
  4. What type of music do you enjoy?  Tell us about it. *
  5. What are some stories about your childhood/school/adolescence years you would like to share?  *

These are some examples that may be meaningful for family holiday and celebration, however remember, there are so many more questions to ask, including some that could be slightly difficult or challenging to answer.  I think that this is a super time of year to begin the process of documenting this information.  Capture these stories for all family members, of all ages.  Because now is when you’re with your family and these discussions never seem to happen. Planning for the unexpected can be awkward, I know. What if you had someone to help you prepare for disruption or loss? Planning to keep our photos and videos long-term is one thing, but everything else is another, right? Well, no, but it’s a start.

Happy Earth Day!

Today is Earth Day and I’m spending it at our new mountain house doing a bunch of yard work.  As I mentioned last month, the Tree of Life at Walt Disney World’s Animal Kingdom is one of my favorite parts of that park.

However now that Pandora is open at the same park it’s even more interesting and fun!   Avatar is one of our favorite movies and the environmental theme is really thought provoking.  I’m so glad that Disney Parks is taking that theme to heart and has so many initiatives to promote conservation, including some great solar initiatives!  Click here to read all about those.

Memory Keeping with Green Blog Hop

Welcome to our Memory Keeping with Green Blog Hop!  I’m excited to share one of my recent favorite layouts.  In January, we traveled to Walt Disney World.  Mainly to see the new land of Pandora at Animal Kingdom.  However I was quickly reminded of one of the reasons why that’s one of my favorite parks – the Tree of Life.  It really is an amazing creation.

Some facts I’ve learned:

  • It’s a sculpture of a Baobab tree and features over 300 carvings of existing and extinct animals.  This is one of the most amazing parts!  Every time I’ve seen it, I’ve seen something different.  I’m still looking for hidden mickeys!
  • It’s really BIG!  It is 145 feet tall and over 8,000 branches in different sizes.  There are over 102,000 man-made leaves, all of which are over a foot long.
  • It’s only one of a few man-made trees.  Throughout the part there are over 4 million living plants.  There’s a great botanical walk near/around the tree where I’ve taken some amazing floral pictures.
  • It opened April 22, 1998 – that’s earth day!

I was amazed at the night time show where the animals come to live through digital animation right on the tree.  It’s well worth the stay.

Have you been to Animal Kingdom?  What’s your favorite part of this park?
