Velveteen Rabbit :)

Love that book.


Okay...so I was watching a wedding highlight video on facebook, and a couple that I don't know used this reading from the Velveteen Rabbit for their wedding.  I would have never thought to do that, but it totally worked for them.


How cute is this?


"What is Real?" asked the Rabbit.  "Real isn't how you are made," said the Skin Horse. "It's a thing that happens to you. When a child loves you for a long, long time, not just to play with, but REALLY loves you, then you become Real... It doesn't happen all at once...You become. It takes a long time. That's why it doesn't happen often to people who break easily, or have sharp edges, or who have to be carefully kept. Generally, by the time you are Real, most of your hair has been loved off, and your eyes drop out and you get loose in your joints and very shabby. But these things don't matter at all, because once you are Real you can't be ugly, except to people who don't understand."

We we were going to use that quote - but our officiant felt like it needed a little bit of introduction to the story in case people hadn't read it, and in the end we thought it would be too much for our ceremony. But I LOVE LOVE LOVE it.

I absolutely love this quote!! My mom always used to read the Velveteen Rabbit to me when I was little. Can't wait to read it to my kids one day.
