Sawyer's sweet birth announcements {and a minted giveaway}.

At last, I shared Sawyer's sweet newborn session with you, and today her equally adorable birth announcement {c/o minted}. minted birth announcement

I love the formality and tradition of birth announcements. What a wonderful way to share our special new baby girl with our closest family and friends. We didn't send a holiday card this year {which, if you know me was a BIG deal} but I was 9 months pregnant with Sawyer and just couldn't bear the thought of sending a card with our family photo that didn't include her sweet face. So, we waiting until her arrival instead.

I searched and search for the perfect announcement, and loved the simple floral touch this design had. Because her middle name is Rose, I loved the undertone and it was a great match to her nursery. The blush coloring of her skin in the photo also worked so well aesthetically.Β  It's a great treasure to add to her baby book in celebration of her first arrival.
