Official Congrats from the Obamas!

I came home today to find a congratulatory letter from Mr. & Mrs. Obama. I had sent a wedding invitation to the White House several days before the wedding! Initially i wasn't going to send it but then Mr. Pancakes said to send it because it would be kinda of cool to have something back from the White House that we could show our kids someday. Therefore i sent it...i guess a little over a month ago. And in the midst of all the big events that has happened in the world...The Obamas took the time to sign a letter wishing us to have a wonderful marriage! That is kind of cool. Whether they "actually" signed it or it was stamped...it's a pretty neat factor to our wedding!

If you are a bride and interested in doing this. Send an invitation to the White House. For whatever reason if the First Family is unable to attend, they will send a cool letter:
Send your wedding invitation to:

The Honorable Barack and Mrs. Obama
The White House
Greetings Office, Room 39
1600 Pennsylvania Avenue
Washington, D.C. 20500

Dear Mrs Pancake,

Firstly, congratulations to you and Mr Pancakes. I wish you a life of joy and happiness together. I'm a new bride myself and can relate to your posts. Especially the dressing like a wife one.
Secondly, thank you for dropping by at Novel Moments and following me. Means a lot.
Now, that was such a cool idea to send an invite to the White House and getting something to show your kids...simply brilliant.

Let's keep in touch. I'd like that very much.
