    I want to share every moment with my family! I live in Canada and the rest of my family is in Europe, we all travel a lot as well, so mobile devices and an account such as Familiar gives us a perfect opportunity to share pictures of our kids and everything that we do, show how they’ve grown. It helps us share and stay in touch regardless the distance and where we currently are. I cannot imagine how people did it twenty years ago, but I sure am glad to live in the age of internet!
