Wife, mother, grandmother (Oma), have lived west of the Mississippi all my life but have traveled to both coasts and Canada. We have also traveled to Europe, Alaska and the Middle East; hoping to get to Italy next year. After our first trip from Europe to Israel, I found Blurb and created my first book. Nearly everyone on the tour bought one as well. It's such a better way to chronicle adventures and save the pictures. They are all in one book, don't fade, and you can add as much text as you want. In 2016 I made books for each of our kids, from their wedding to the present, integrating their blog postings to coincide with the pictures. That was a Christmas with joyful tears.
