A few weeks ago when I opened up my Lyve app to access a particular photo from my Cabo press trip last year, I noticed a new little scrolling feature at the top telling me that I had some "Moments From This Month."
One, whoa, it read my mind. How did it know I wanted to snag a photo from it?! Two, when you weren't expecting to see some really happy memories just two weeks after your second dad passed away and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad March, it hits you in the heart.
My 30th birthday year was seriously one of the best years of my entire life to date. Despite my being a bit of a "play it safe" gal, I vowed to take every adventure that came my way in 2014. So when Sara asked me to be her photographer/travel buddy to Cabo San Lucas, I immediately hopped at the chance to not only see a new place (and eat the best rice and beans!), but to hang out with a good friend whom I don't get to see often and to meet new people.
It was my first press trip, and it gave me the press trip bug like something fierce and kick-started what was to be an incredible year.
So when I was feeling a bit worn and weary and as cheesy as it sounds, taking an unexpected trip back down Memory Lane via Lyve helped to give a brighter optimism that 2015 will be just as wonderful as the last despite its rocky start.
Okay, nostalgia is a great thing, but we need to get pumped! Because guess who gets to giveaway another LyveHome device like last time?! I do! If you don't know of my love for this photo organizational gadget, be sure to go back in time and read why it's awesome.
While I have the LyveHome device and there is only one winner for this particular giveaway, anyone can join in on the fun! You do not need a device to utilize the wonderfulness that is the ultimate phone-space-free-upper Lyve app (which for you Android friends, there's a version for you, too!)!
The Lyve app is free and can be installed on the following platforms: iOS, Android, Mac, PC, and Kindle. The ingenious app consolidates all your photos and videos scattered across multiple devices into a single app for viewing across all those devices. Organized by date in a beautiful, simple timeline. Hello, Type As' dream!
If you're a fan of the app TimeHop, then you're going to love this one because it takes it one step further and preserves your photos for easy re-download rather than a timeline showcase for immediate social media sharing... which you can also do with the Lyve app in addition to the other benefits.
Valued at $299, one lucky Tidewater and Tulle reader will receive a brand new LyveHome device to store their own memories!
1. Download the Lyve app for their phone or tablet (iOS or Android).
2. Find a few photos on your phone that remind you of happy memories and allow it to automatically upload into your Lyve account after you open the app.
3. Share your thoughts about the photos that make you smile most and the app in the comments below! Please make sure your email address is included if you do not have a Disqus (our commenting system) account so we can contact you if you win.
The giveaway ends on Sunday, May 17, 2015 at 11:59pm EST. Winner will be randomly chosen via Random.org and then emailed asking for shipping address information. Valid only for U.S. residents.
Have fun freeing up your phone space! I'd love to see your #MemoryLane photos, so use the hashtag on Twitter and Instagram to share.
