Do you use Timehop? This is one of my favorite apps and I check it every day. In fact, I have most of my push notifications turned off, but Timehop gets to notify me once per day. I get to see where I was a year ago. It has been crazy to reflect on how far things have come in the last year, so let’s compare my life a year ago to where it is today.
