Keeping in touch has been important to me since childhood! I have always felt a need to keep in touch with my family as much as possible. Then as a Senior in high school I was living on my own. My mother had moved to California to help take care of my grandparents whom were terminally ill. My older sister was promoted to a position in another city, and my younger brother was living with a family member in another state. I did not want to switch schools or states my senior year in high school, so email became essential to keeping in touch with my family! Especially since California is in a different time zone! I have relied on my email to keep up to date with the happenings and going ons in my family’s life! I have had the same Yahoo! email address for over 16 years now and have not wanted to change it so that I don’t lose touch with anyone from my childhood. It is more important now more than ever since I have Alexandra! Every few months we send out an update on her growth and development with pictures so everyone can see her cute little face!! Here is a screen shot of one of those emails:
Wouldn’t you want to email everyone you know with pictures of that adorable little monkey!! I definitely depend on my emails to keep everyone updated on Alexandra! I want to keep my family in touch and in the know as if they lived next door! Most of them live in California now and with kids (noise), kids’ activities (driving everywhere), and time zone changes it is easier to send an email then to try… I repeat try to talk on the phone with my family!
This video from Yahoo! makes me think about all the adventures Alexandra is going to have that I am going to be able share with everyone through email.
