I am currently obsessed with listening to the Scrap Gals Podcast and the episode I listened to today was about photo organizing and printing. They and their guest had a lot to say about how they organize their photos and how many photos they actually have printed (upwards of 30,000 - wow. Goals).
However, they mentioned that their children (who are all around my age - 17-25) take thousands of pictures a year but never print them because they insist that "no one prints photos anymore." I find that interesting. And, personally, sort of heart breaking. I have kept journals since I was in high school (but more seriously recently) and I've been scrapbooking for a few months (though I also scrapbooked in middle school and just lost it for a few years).
I can't think of a better feeling then committing a photo to a page, adding a few stickers and a few lines of journaling. These are memories that not only will I be able to look back on for my entire life, but, my kids and husband and family in the future will be able to have and cherish and enjoy forever. To me, having books with these handmade pages and printed photos makes me happier than a lot of other things.
