I have been up since too early working so that I can take the 9 AM shuttle to Center City (a couple of miles away). Why?????
I AM GOING TO SOCIAL SECURITY TO CHANGE MY NAME!!!!
The Social Security office opens at 9 so I am hoping to get there by 9:10 and hopefully beat the lines there might be? I feel a little weird changing my name as I have a very strong family identity. I’ve been SMR for over 25 years, and I’m proud. However, I am also proud to take on my new name! I hope that I have all the documents I need to bring. I have:
-my driver’s license
-copy of our marriage license, which I didn’t know we had to request, but I learned and I did.
-the latest copy of Health Magazine, to keep me entertained while I wait.
Somehow I feel like changing my name will make our marriage real, even though I’ve been in Philly for almost a month and have been living with my love for that same amount of time.
All photos are by Marina & YI Sun of LifeFusion Photography. I love Marina & Yi- they did a great job! We have only seen about 40 pictures so far but we love what we’ve seen!!!! If you are engaged and looking for a great photographer(s)- you don’t need to look anymore! They were pricier than others but completely and truly worth it. More wedding photos are here and here.
Changing my name comes right in time with the change of summer and fall. To celebrate the end of summer, I had my last bowl of ice cream last night: Edy’s Slow Churned Chemical Goo Vanilla + chocolate chips + chopped walnuts + RED GRAPES! Grapes and ice cream are actually amazing together. Try it! I am happy to have no ice cream left though, really. It is hard to eat one little bowl and be done with it, especially when you have delicious fruits in it!
Off to become Mrs. PhillyBoy to the government! I hope it isn’t anticlimactic!
