Anniversary Books – Share Your Love Story With Those You Love

Happy Anniversary!

We can’t wait to help you create your beautiful keepsake to celebrate your anniversary (or someone else’s, like your parents.) Yes, today we won’t beat around the bush. This post is all about your love, relationship, anniversaries, and a little bit of shameless self-promotion because, at Weeva, we know the power of love and storytelling. We know how to make a lasting impact that gives you all the good feelings without the hard work – so naturally, we want to share that with you.

Your Love Story

Let’s start here. Every couple has a unique story about how they met, fell in love, and started a life together. It doesn’t matter if this is your 5th anniversary or your 30th anniversary. What matters is that two people fell in love, didn’t give up on each other, and grew stronger together. I won’t attempt to describe your story, it’s yours. What I will attempt, however, is to show you why creating an anniversary book, or the story of your love is something every couple should do. Read More

Meet The Team: Deanna Ayres

Welcome back to Weeva’s “Meet The Team” time! This week we are introducing Deanna Ayres – Community Manager & Happiness Hero.

My Dad, The Storyteller

While we are gearing up for Tip Tuesday blogs, we will share our favorite family stories with you. We hope you enjoy the personal stories our team will share over the coming weeks and use them as inspiration for your own family story Weeva book!

My Dad, The Storyteller – Kim Gorsuch-Bradbury

In my family, growing up, we all loved listening to my dad’s stories. Some of them were true or at least based on actual events, and others were pure fabrication. They all came with sound effects, impeccable timing and enchanting delivery. My dad has always had the ability to make me smile and laugh.

The story of Snake Hill has always been a favorite, and I’ve always wondered how my Uncle David would tell it. Sadly, he passed away before I could capture his point of view. Read More

Weeva: Keeping Your Memories Safe and Sound

I recently stumbled upon the Weeva website and I was immediately taken in, because I love a good story, especially the stories from my own life. And what’s better than an old memory? Although it’s unfortunate, over time we forget many of our memories. Yes, we may have scrapbooks, journals, and pictures on our phones, but (except for the photos) these are rarely shared, and rarely tell the full story. I might see an old photo, and remember the event but not really anything specific behind it. Weeva helps me weave my memories back together with the help of family and friends.

For example, one of my favorite memories from when I was a cheerleader was one of our football games when the game went into overtime. We were tired, and worn out from two hours of cheering. When we finally won the game, all of us ran out onto the field to congratulate the players. Usually we wait until the players are off the field, but it was such a fantastic game that we were all so excited. It was one of my favorite games, and I know all the other cheerleaders remember that game, too. On Weeva, we could all share that memory and write our different versions of it. Slowly bringing that game back to life.

Don’t Lose Your Precious Memories

Weeva opens a whole new door for our stories, whether it’s a trip you went on, or a wedding, or a birthday. With family and friends, you can tell any story and collect all of your favorite memories. Weeva’s books help you share life lessons, a sweet love story, a journey of triumph or despair; basically your life story. When we share stories, everyone can learn from them, and then we don’t have to worry about forgetting them.

It has been a tradition in my family to give a book of blessings to my sisters and me on our 13th birthdays. My parents would ask our closest friends to write us a note, poem, or even just a simple quote that will give us some wisdom on the years ahead of us as teenagers. Just on Sunday, we celebrated my youngest sister’s 13th birthday where we created that book for the last time. As my sister was flipping through her book, I realized that if we’d known about Weeva during the previous years, the process would’ve been easier. We could’ve easily connected to people, had them write their letters in our private Weeva tapestry, and then gotten Weeva to design the book for us. I also realized how useful Weeva was for almost any occasion, or no occasion at all. Just a way to collect our memories when they’re freshest.

Keep Your Memories Safe and Sound

I’m so blessed that my mom was able to collect all her memories in scrapbooks and photo books because I love to look at them. But I wish I knew the stories behind the photos. Because if we lose those memories, nobody will ever hear the great stories we have all shared. Weeva offers us something that not many things do. If we work together, we can write down the memories we have and bring them back to life. Bringing family and friends together to recall the best of times and know that those memories are safe and sound in a book would make me happy. And in the end, whenever it’s a bad day, I could always open up the books and relive some of my happiest times.
