Day 19 {It's official.}


I learned throughout this process that your name isn't legally changed until it is changed through the SSA. A marriage certificate won't do it. Nor will a driver's license...because the DMV won't see you until you've dealt with the SSA. Receiving lots of cool monogrammed G's on wedding gifts won't help, and neither will signing your new married name over and over on the dry erase board in the kitchen instead of doing the dishes. Well today my new card came in the mail. It's official. I acted a bit like Lady from Lady & The Tramp when she gets her new collar. Ok well that metaphor isn't working very well, but you get the idea.
