Family memories captured with YesVideo

Life is all about memories, right? We take photos and videos, we write journals and make scrapbooks, and we sit and reminisce and tell stories. I’ve talked a lot about YesVideo here on my blog because I love their memory-making services. They take photographs and video (tapes, files, etc.) and convert them to digital files and DVD, allowing you to watch and share anywhere!

My family has used their services many times with old VHS tapes. We don’t even own a VHS player anymore and some tapes were unplayable anyway. Tons of old home movies and loved memories that we thought were lost and gone… until we sent them off to YesVideo. I know it might seem scary to send away precious memories, but YesVideo has a LOT of checks (and rechecks and more rechecks) in place to ensure your photos and videos are safe and returned to you. I’ve visited their CA location and saw the whole process!


We sent videos of my grandpa from when I was a little kid. He passed away in 2009 and we miss him everyday. He was seriously the happiest and most considerate guy I’ve ever met. Ever. He’s the type of person you want to be like… the attitude toward life you can only hope you have until the end, too.

I picked out this video clip to share with you because it just captures my grandpa so perfectly. This was Christmas at his house and he stood up to sing a Norwegian song. We’re proud Norwegians—he lived there when he was young, spoke the language, and made sure to include the heritage in our lives as we grew up. He was always singing some little tune and doing a little jig… I can’t help but smile through this entire clip (and tear up a bit, too).

You can recapture, save, and share your memories with YesVideo, too. Make sure you find them on Facebook and Twitter for any specials and deals!
