Family Life Giveaways

Birthday memories with my daughter…plus a Lyve Home giveaway!

When I turned 30, I got the birthday present of a lifetime! I had my second little girl, Vivian, who is now 3 (now you know how old I am.. ha!). I absolutely love that I share my birthday with her, and right now she thinks it’s pretty cool too (though I doubt she always will–but a girl can hope, right?). Anyway, when she turned 2, we had a big joint party right before I had my son (he was born a month later), comeplete with Elmo cupcakes, sub sandwiches and our friends and family!

IMG_2042The reason I bring this up now, and not when it actually was our birthdays in December, is because I downloaded this new app on my phone AND computer, called Lyve, and it helped me to remember that I even had this event’s pictures stored on my phone! It is a really cool app in that it not only sorts my photos on all the devices I have connected by date, but it allows me to access all the photos from my phone on my computer or tablet and visa vera, so long as I have the app connected on those devices.


Before, when I was wanting a photo off of my phone and onto my computer, I had to email the photo to myself and then download it from there. Same with if I wanted a phone from my computer. This app is SO much easier because it automatically syncs all the photos from the Lyve app, regardless of what device I am on! Once I am on my computer, I can choose the photo(s) that I want and export them from the app to my computer. So, so easy! I like that it doesn’t download the photos automatically, but rather is just a server that holds it all for me online. That way, I can pick and choose what photos I want to download before I download them, thus saving space on my devices. Pretty nifty!


Here’s a screen shot of my phone that shows you how it sorts the photos by date. I love that because I can’t always remember when things happened. This makes it easy so you can!

I highly recommend you download (Android (click), iOS (click), Desktop (click)) this app for all compatible devices, so you can have access to all your photos wherever you are or wherever you go.


Right now is actually the PERFECT time to get this FREE app because If you download the Lyve app on your phone and computer and share one of your original photos on social media using the hashtag #MemoryLane, you’ll be entered to win a $299 Lyve Home device right here on the blog! This is a fun extra to this Lyve service that you can manage and display all your photos in a fun and stylish way. Think of it as an decorative, interactive digital photo cube.

Now, if you’re entering this giveaway, be sure to do the following– because if you don’t you won’t qualify for the giveaway!

1. Download the Lyve app on your phone or tablet (click for iOS, click for Android) and computer and share a photo on social media using the #MemoryLane hashtag.

2. Comment below and let me know your thoughts on the app (be sure to leave the email address you’re using to download the app, as we will verify you have created an account to win this device!). Is it making your photo organization easier?  

I will draw one winner in two weeks and you will be notified by email if you have won. Please respond with your shipping information so your Lyve Home can be shipped to you!

Have a great time walking down Memory Lane, and don’t forget to enter my awesome giveaway!
