The name game
I just realized as I stared at the photo above, now that I'm no longer single, I need to change the name on all my print materials.
I have no trouble using my new name in legal forms, mind you. It took some getting used to at first (I would catch myself staring blankly at the nurse holding my medical chart as she summons a Mrs. Del Rosario at the doctor's office), but I'm getting the hang of it.
When it comes to my handmade business however, that's where my identity crisis starts. All my business cards, product tags and labels, directory listings, etc. need to be updated.
But what name to use? I do not want to hyphenate. So do I drop my maiden name and use my new surname? Or do I retain my maiden name and use it as my middle name? But if I choose the latter, my new 11-syllable, 25-character name will require larger earring cards. Lol.
Ah, the trivial little details in the life of a newly wed. :p
