You had me at "welcome." Such a good, kind, comforting word. And a great way to make loved ones forget overpriced airline tickets or a long drive to see you through traffic and tolls. Not everyone has a welcome wedding reception sign, of course. Those toddlers in tuxedos will be just as charming and the silver fountain dripping with twenty five pounds of Belgian milk chocolate just as impressive. But for those who do have one, your warm and generous greeting makes me feel like including you in birthdays, barbeques and every important celebration in my life that's festive and fun.
