Hi everyone! I’m Lauren and I’m a guest blogger this week. Yay! I’m famous :)
I just wanted to share a quick story with you about my family. I’m really close to my brother and sister-in-law (Aaron and Emily) so when they told me they were expecting, I was elated! I’ve always wanted to be an aunt.
As you can imagine, when I got the call that Emily was in labor, I left Chicago immediately and booked it down to Indianapolis where they live. A few short (well, short-ish) hours later, little Quinn Michael came into the world. It was incredible. Being the avid photographer that I am, I grabbed my iPhone and snapped a pic of the new baby boy.
Now, a lot of our friends and family are spread around the country, so I wanted to make a point to make sure that all of them got to be a part of this momentous occasion. My friend Hannah had mentioned that she used Walgreens Same Day Pickup photo cards for her bridal shower. So, I sent the picture to my Walgreens Photo account right from the hospital and picked out a design on my phone in the waiting room.
That night, I walked to a Walgreens around the corner and picked up their birth announcement photo cards I had ordered literally an hour or two before. Super quick and easy! Because the Same Day Pickup photo cards come with envelopes, I was able to send them out the next morning. In the next two days all of our friends and family got the announcements, and every one of them felt like they got to be a part of something truly magnificent.
Thank you Walgreens! You’ve made me one very grateful aunt!
