Good morning everyone, how are you today ? The sun is finally shining here in Munich (after what felt like some kind of European Monsoon…) and the kids and I finally got to use our brand new bikes to do the school run this morning and we had so much fun ! Oh happy day !!!
Today I would like to show you something that I found so irresistible, so adorable – I just HAD to share it with you ! Emiliy Henderson, a California based tv host, interior stylist and designer who also happens to write one of the few blogs I read regularly, just shared the sweetest pregnancy announcement with her readers… Take a look !
This is really such a cute way to announce to your loved ones and the world that you are expecting and I just love how her quirky personality shines through ! A lot has changed in the days of Facebook and social media and I think this is a truly fitting announcement for a blogger ! Don’t you agree ? 😉
Seeing it, made me think back to 2006 and 2010 when I found out I was expecting my two little ones and wish I had been a little more creative with my own announcement ! The first time around my husband was right there to do the happy dance with me when I took that one life-altering pregnancy test. The second time around though, he was on a business trip and I was so excited about the fact that I was (finally) expecting again that I simply couldn’t wait to tell him in person and just went ahead and texted him a photo of the positive test… LOL That was definitely not the most creative way to let him know that he was about to become a dad for the second time but it was definitely very typical for me (saying I can be a tad impatient at times would be a bit of an understatement !)…
We told our families in person but when it was time to tell our friends and the rest of the world out there, I did what probably tons of other proud and eager parents-to-be do – I posted a sonogram picture to my Facebook account… What about you ? How did you tell your husband and did you come up with a creative and/or fun announcement for your family and friends ? I would love to hear some of your stories !!!
