A Whale of a Birth Announcement

A fun birth announcement that is played up by the name of the new arrival, Jonas similar to the biblical name Jonah which we know, was swallowed by a whale. Designer Louise-Lotte Brekelmans who hails from Belgium put all the content “inside the whale”. The whale flap is tucked and holds the whole announcement together. So adorable!



It’s the Cold, It’s the Flu, It’s a Baby??! The Big Reveal!

Friends of the internets, I have been slightly neglecting our dear friend joilejolie and after weeks of nausea, fatigue and exhaustion, I am happy to report that I do not have the flu or the cold. I am actually expecting (14 weeks to be exact)!

I thought it would be fun to share with you how we revealed it to our friends. My birthday happened to land in the weekend that I entered my second trimester which is traditionally when it is safe to share with others the good news.

I decided to have a fiesta-themed party at a park because I LOVE TACOS. I hired a caterer to come and make fresh made-to-order tacos in a little cart, full on salsa bar and some tasty agua fresca.


What else would be missing from a fiesta-themed party? A piñata of course! The plan was to fill the piñata with candies along with a little note that would announce the news. The kids took the first initial whack at it, as did I. Eventually one of our friends decapitated it which I thought would foil our plan but watch the video to see what happens!

The note:
Thanks to Sylvia for this cute drawing!
