Baby, Home

Moving etiquette.

Is there such a thing anymore? Do you inform friends and family your address has changed in a massive email? On Facebook? Or do you send snail mail? Rifle Paper Co. makes some lovely illustrated cards. Wouldn’t these be fun to send out:

But who has the time, right? I still think it’s a nice idea. Maybe it’s worth sending to family? Have you moved recently? What did you do?

While we’re on the subject – I know some people combine big announcement messages. We could certainly combine a baby announcement with a new address note. But I’ve heard that’s taboo in some circles. Maybe I should just steer clear of those circles?

I’m really digging a couple other prints from Rifle too. They do it up right. I’m thinking for the little guy’s room.

  1. Love the idea of announcing good news as often as possible. Gives both sides (the announcer(s) and announcee(s)) a happy feeling. So I’d say 2 announcements. When we moved back we created 2 versions of our new address announcement – a “We’ve moved” for those we left behind and a “Guess who’s back?” for our new community. Pop! Party Invites ( did ours and they were perfect. Good luck…and love the Rifle print!!

    • Thank you for the perspectives! Much appreciated. I love the idea of announcing good news as often as possible. That’s a very positive, feel good message.

    Definitely wouldn’t put it on Facebook. All of our family and close friends knew (of course). The post office forwards mail for a year. I waited until Christmas and sent info to other friends, etc. in my
    Christmas message. You have the perfect opportunity to create a new member of the family will share our new home announcement. Think of the $ you’ll save 🙂
