Right now my husband and I are about to start trying for the next baby. I think. Probably. It’s all so scary and huge and monumental, so naturally it’s on my mind 90% of the time. Just sitting back there in the back of my brain, rambling off a list of pros and cons while I’m trying to concentrate on anything else.
But back to my point: There’s most likely going to be a pregnancy to announce in the near future. And since my first pregnancy was announced in a firestorm of tears and you tell them, I just can’t non-announcements, I’ve been brainstorming ideas. There’s how to tell my husband (fun!), how to tell Noah, how to tell my parents, how to tell my blog readers — and then there’s how to tell my family and friends. All of the people who I want to tell in a personalized way (read: not on Facebook) and in a creative way (read: not in an obligatory phone call).
Then I thought: what about snail mail? Honestly in this day and age, that might be the last place people would expect it. Yet it has that personalized, hand-written, took-the-time-to-lick-a-stamp feel. And with sites like Etsy, it certainly can be a creative option.
