Hi everyone! I was just realizing that it's been a while since I've done a full backup of all my pics and dropped it off at the safe deposit box. Now seems like a good time ... it's the beginning of the month... the big holidays are over and summer isn't quite here yet. Time for backups!!

Haha and of course even though I said I was going to do it, I still haven't. I WILL do this today though.

Some of you may remember the very expensive lesson I learned around this time last year. I lost my harddrive with my wedding and honeymoon pictures and we ended up paying quite a lot of money to get them back- and it was a very close call. Don't be like me!

I guess I need to get scanning!
I have a lot of old pics and my wedding pics etc. that are NOT in the computer....
If they ever get destroyed,
that's it, no more

As far as backup....ours is set to backup automatically (in 2 places) but I do not have a HD that I keep out of our house.....
