How many of you have boxes and boxes of old photos or albums? Do you have VHS tapes and no VCR? Mini digital tapes and no camera with which to play them?
Raising my hand for all of the above!
Our world is so digital these days, yet some of our memories are stuck in the decades in which they were recorded. Legacybox has a solution for that – they digitize memories for the modern day so that you can enjoy and share them. Last year I converted all of my old tapes to DVDs and now I can actually watch them! I still had piles of unorganized childhood photos that I wanted to sort through and digitize.
Legacybox makes this process as easy as possible. Just package up your tapes and photos in their special crush-proof box and ship them (for free!) away. Within a few weeks you get a CD with everything neatly scanned in (you can also opt to get them on a thumb drive too). An additional benefit to this is you can put these in a fireproof box and share them with a neighbor or relative for safe keeping should your house ever get hit by a natural disaster. The originals are all returned as well, so you have them in both formats.
Here is a special deal for all of you guys!

I was actually REALLY impressed by the quality. These look almost like digital photos not scanned copies. Here are a handful of my favorites!
How pretty is mom here!?
In honor of our family legacy, I thought it was a good time to finally put my mom’s famous sherry cheese dip in recipe form.
This dip is SO easy to make, and it’s always a hit at our holiday events! My sister and I have been loving it for years. The only thing I do differently than mom is I toast the garlic so it’s not quite so raw on the palate : )
Easy Sherry Cheese Dip
- 8 ounces cream cheese
- 8 ounces sharp cheddar cheese grated
- 1 clove garlic grated, minced, or pressed
- Sherry to taste but start with a few tablespoons
- Grate cheese in a food processor with the grater attachment.
- Toast garlic in a skillet in a little oil until golden brown.
- Switch food processor to blade attachment. Add cream cheese, garlic and sherry and process until smooth.
- Add more sherry if desired (I like it strong!)
- Serve with crackers or raw veggies.
