I am officially announcing my child’s birth to my readers and to my friends and family! These days people announce this sort of thing on Facebook or even twitter. I am a huge fan of announcing monumental events, like having a child to my close friends and family via a traditional avenue using birth announcements.
I prefer mailing birth announcements to only announcing on Facebook for several reasons:
1. Not all my friends and family are on social media. I want everyone to hear the good news not just my friends and few family members that are on Facebook!
2. I want my friends and family to have physical pictures of my daughter to frame or put on their fridge. I keep out photo Christmas cards, photo baby announcements, and wedding save the dates on my fridge for a while. I love looking at happy moments in my friends’ and family’s lives.
3. I love receiving mail and I suspect other people do too! Everyday, I get the mail in the hopes that there will something fun besides bill and advertisements in it. Sometimes it is a magazine or a package, but other times it is a picture card from a friend or family. I adore all of it!
