This is a sponsored post about the new Care4Today Mobile Health Manager.  Opinions are my own.

I have a few photos shy of 1000 on my iPhone camera roll right now.  That's a LOT of images.  Some photos are silly, but many are meaningful.  I actually did NOT bring my "big" camera to Disney World with us last month, opting for the convenience of a phone sized camera and not having ...
