obama knows me

it started out as a normal day when the mail lady slammed the envelopes into the mailbox in full force, making enough racket to wake a hibernating bear.  
but when i saw this specific envelope with the return address from The White House, i knew it would be anything but ordinary. 
my first thoughts: 
are john and i in trouble with mr. president? 
are we finally famous?
is john running for president? am i?
john, you're a cpa. how badly could you screw up our taxes?

but i was beyond thrilled when i so patiently opened the manila envelope and discovered our friends, barack and michelle remembered our wedding and sent us some well wishes.  

can you believe this?
"the white house
washington
congratulations to you on your wedding day.  we hope this special time is blessed with love, laughter, and happiness.  as you embark on your journey together, may your bond grow stronger with each passing year.  sincerely,
barack obama michelle obama"

along with the extremely nice note, we received a signed photograph of Mr. President and another photograph of the First Family.

i couldn't wait to show you all after i had it framed so please excuse the poor display for now.

in my opinion, it doesn't matter what political party you support, we live in an incredibly special country when the leader will take a moment to make you feel important.  

i'm proud to be an american. 

have you ever received anything like this?

Did you send them an invite? or perhaps did someone you know send them something about yout wedding? I've heard the president does this if you send an invite!

Regardless, very cool! haha

This is SO COOL :) You go girl!

Yes! If you send an invite, you get a presidential response, so cool. I hear they do the same thing if you send them a birth announcement as well... for future reference...

Happy Wedding Planning!

My hubby and I have a letter from the former pres, which we have framed along with other historical/presidential things.

Very cool for you!!!

Hate to tell you this.....but the President doesn't know or care about your wedding. That response was sent from a PR lackey working at the White House. I really like your blog and I really DON"T like the current administration. Sorry that you do....so long to a cute but too politically wrong blog.

We did the same thing for our wedding! I was so so excited as well. We also sent one to Disney World (aren't we dorks?) and received a signed autograph from Mickey and Minnie. We framed them all and put them on a display table at our wedding along with some pictures of our parents, grandparents, etc. on their wedding days. :)
