How I used Evernote this week to save digital memories from my mom

My mom recently picked up texting with bitmojis as fast as any tween or millennial.  She also has one of the more accurate semblances of any bitmoji I’ve seen!  I get a kick out of each one that she sends, and many come in each week.  It pained me to delete the texts, so I started dropping them into Evernote in my “Memorabilia” notebook as a “Mom’s Bitmojis” note. 

With so many touching and hilarious pieces of life being exchanged digitally, we run the risk of losing them forever with a tap of the delete button - which is OK!! I’m not advocating for any of us to start hoarding digital memorabilia at the rate at which we keep physical memories, but for those precious pixelated pieces we suspect we’ll want to remember forever, thankfully there’s Evernote.
