I realize this might permanently place me in the category of "lame" but I was thinking about sending out moving announcements when we move in a month. And before you judge me, here are my reasons why:
1. We just had a wedding meaning after shower invitations, wedding invitations, and response cards everyone know has this address.
2. There is a lot of distant family that I keep in contact with through Christmas cards, birthday cards, etc. but that's about it. I don't have email addresses for most people or I'd just send out a mass email with our new address on it.
3. I don't really trust our current apartment to forward anything/call me if we get a package. They once lost a package for 4 months. 4 months!!! And yet they still claimed it was my fault.
Charlie has told me that it would be "super lame" to send them out & part of me agrees. If there was a better way to let everyone know of our new digs than I would. Read: if you have suggestions let me know. Also, I'm tired of buying stamps in bulk. I'm on a first name basis with the guys at the post office between mailing packages and buying "Forever" stamps.
I did find these "moving announcements" which I like because it looks like our new place. Sort of. I don't think I could ever bring myself to buy them if I did decide to send them out which means I'd be making them.
Totally unrelated, I found this website which allows you to take any picture and make it into an "Obama poster". Henry has my vote.
