This giveaway is sponsored by Familiar, a free and private way to share your photos with your family.

Three years ago, my husband and I packed up and moved our kids over 600 miles away from my hometown: leaving behind my boys’ Grammy, Papa, three aunts, three uncles, and what is now six cousins.  The hardest part about that move has been being away from close family and missing out on seeing all the kids grow up.

While it’s been nice to have social media sites like Facebook and Instagram for photo sharing, it’s not always the easiest way to share photos with family members. Especially with my parents who aren’t very tech-savvy and don’t understand how to do things like download photos from an email attachment. Plus, sometimes I want to share photos only with my family, not with everyone. While I don’t mind sharing some photos on social media where almost anyone can see, there are times when I’d much rather share privately: when it’s a ton of photos from a vacation or when my boys are in their soccer uniforms with the name (and therefore location) of where they play emblazoned across their jerseys.

This is why I’ve been thrilled to find Familiar. It turns the screens you already have into a picture frame, allowing you to seeing family photos no matter where you are.
