3: Wallis is... A fiendishly good dancer An adventurer An animal lover A world class traveler An expert sleeper A best friend This list could go on throughout this book. There simply aren't enough pages to do you justice! I am so thrilled for you and Ben and the life you both have ahead of you together. Here's to all the good things ahead! Love, Abbs.
4: Party Animal...
5: ...Outdoor Enthusiast | These are just 2 of the many facets of our favorite bride-to-be. Wallis - It's hard to believe we bonded over singing Britney Spears in front of a roomful of bankers-in-training...even harder to believe that 9 years later we are about to go through another major milestone in lock step. I'm so excited for you and Ben and the amazing life you are about to embark upon together. Looking forward to the next chapter! | Love, Meaghan
6: My wonderful sister-in-law, the first time I met you, I knew you were the "one". It was so much fun traveling with you to Taiwan. Welcome to the family and may we have many more happy times together!
7: Love, Rina
9: Willis! You are such a sweet friend, and have been since the 8th grade. We've been through a lot together - from tag-teaming in Policy Debate throughout high school, to sending and receiving "live entertainment" on my 18th birthday (!), to traveling in France and Italy in college (and scaring away people on the train!), to (barely) surviving our first years of banking together in NYC, and in the past 10 years, always being there for each other as we both have found our men, our careers and made lives for ourselves over the years. I love you, girl! Much Love, Mita

23: Dear Wallis, you are one of the most adventurous people I have ever met. Your love for travel, food, culture and openness to try different things push me to step out of my comfort zone. And at the same time, I can always rely on you to be the voice of reason! Congratulations and the warmest of wishes to you and Ben!
24: Dear Wallis, From our high school debate days to NYC advventures... | you have been a great friend, always willing to trek out to the suburbs for our shindigs..

28: Wallis, I was smitten with you from the first time that I met you, not just because of your beauty and intelligence (which were immediately obvious), but also because of your kind heart, love for your friends and family, independence, and admirable desire to take action to help others (quickly obvious). That you would want to spend your life with me is my proudest achievement, as you are a reflection of me (and, if nothing else, my excellent taste). We complement each other so well: we are strong separately, but together we can face on any challenge that life throws at us (e.g., little mixie beasts)! I love you and look forward to the adventure. | Wallis is My inspiration in life My supporter My best friend Truly my better half | Love, Ben
29: ...and they lived happily ever after...
