Moving Announcements

September 23, 2013 | FILED UNDER: Uncategorized

It’s been almost 3 months since we made the big move from Chicago to San Antonio. I suppose it is about time to make it official with a proper moving announcement!

How fun are these moving announcements from Minted? I thought they were the perfect lighthearted way to capture our big change. While I could send out a mass email to family and friends with our new contact info, I know I would prefer to receive a pretty card in the mail!


Yep y’all, we are officially Texans. It is funny how quickly you can adjust to new surroundings. I didn’t necessarily know what to expect when we moved here, but I don’t think I expected to feel at home so quickly.

Surprisingly this little blog has played a big role in helping with the transition. I’ve had several Design Improvised readers in the area take the time to reach out to me and welcome me to San Antonio. I’ve even had the chance to meet a couple of them in person – I couldn’t be more thankful for these new friends!


We are enjoying our new home, exploring the neighborhood little by little, and settling into our new routine. The weather has been great (I don’t mind the heat) and they say it only gets better over the next couple months – now that is a welcome change from Chicago!

So while our home is still very much a work in progress, and I miss our family and friends in Chicago dearly, the future is looking bright for us here.


As for the moving announcements, how cool are these wrap around return address labels? While I kept my cards pretty simple, Minted gives you lots of customization options with their cards, from changing the color of the text, to incorporating family photos, to adding matching address labels.

We’ll be celebrating with our new neighbors and friends with a housewarming party in a couple of weeks – as for our friends and family far away, keep a lookout for some mail coming your way!

Thank you to Minted for providing the moving announcements!
