Moving your household from one home to another is a thrilling time. Pulling up roots in one state to move to another – from your townhome in Campbell, CA to a house in Sarasota, FL, for instance – can be a mixed bag of looking forward to new adventures, but feeling sad about leaving friends and loved ones behind. Picture yourself starting over in a brand new home by Taylor Morrison, though, and you’re likely to get a little giddy. Share that excitement with friends and family by sending out a creative moving announcement.
Paint Chip Cards
