Mentoring A Toast

Marc and I are eagerly awaiting our wedding. We’ve started writing a speech to our guests and parents. I decided to mentor myself after the way Lucy Calkins, my former professor and advisor, opens up each summer institute for the TCRWP. I think it’s powerful. Thoughts?

You’ve come from as near as New Jersey, Connecticut, and Pennsylvania. From five boroughs of New York City, Westchester, Long Island, and Upstate New York. You’ve driven here from Maryland and Washington, DC. You’ve come from our new home state of Rhode Island and from other places in New England. You’ve flown from Florida, Colorado, Texas, and California. You have crossed oceans and have joined us from as far away as Israel. We are touched that each and every one of you has come from near and far to celebrate the beginning of our married lives.

I’m not posting the rest of the speech since I want to make sure it’s fresh when it’s delivered to our guests later on this month. (And I know that some of our guests read this blog… thanks for stopping by if you’re one of them! 🙂 )
