Baby Geekling Announcement!



So we are so exciting to be welcoming a little geekling into the world late August 2016. Since we live in the age of adorable announcements for everything (I mean, engagements, weddings, baby pictures, you name it!), I felt like I should take a stab at it as well!

I wanted to do something that reflected both my and Jim's personalities, and our collective geekdom. I searched the internet for a while, but didn't find any geeky baby announcements that I really loved. I then realized that I really wanted to do something with books, since reading shaped so much of who I am today.

Jim and I collected books that meant a lot to us, and then I recruited my amazing friends Austin and Betsy, who did with my Cinderella photoshoot with me, to take the pictures. I think it turns out amazing!
