One of the coolest things from my Bridal Shower in December was to have the guests write a piece of advice for me on a piece of card stock. My sister-in-law came up with this idea instead of a guestbook. She read some of the advice cards - many of which were quite funny. One of my favorites was from a friend of my Mom's. She said when your husband asks how much it costs reply "less than $1,000" and if it costs more than that, say nothing.
My mom took the assignment a little differently and wrote her wishes for me rather than advice. This is what she wrote:
Just notice the P.S. statement. We have talked for years about taking a trip to Italy together. I know that she would love everything about it.
Well the other day I got this in the mail.
I won it on a contest from Weddingbee. Perhaps the universe is telling me something?
Don't worry Mom. I will take you to Italy someday. But first I want to take a honeymoon trip with Matt.
