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
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?
