it’s been almost a year since we got married, and i still have yet to decide if i want to change my last name or not. i’m leaning towards no… yes, it’s partially because of a woman’s right to her name and that i don’t want to feel like i lost my identity (EDIT: personal feeling, i’m not saying women who do it lost their identities), but in the end, it really just came down to the fact that i’m just too damn lazy. i mean, it’s really a lot of work. people tell me that it’s better to do it because you would want to have the same name as your children. i just shrugged and said the kids are gonna have my last name. however, it did get me to toy with the idea of a hyphenated last name, which ideally, our kids will also share.
although i think this would be kind of a cute last name if i owned a chinese noodle house, i can also foresee how this could be a really good reason for some kid to collect milk money from my kids. i don’t want to be seen as the mom that hates her kids.
on a related note, dave sent me this funny email, which shows why some brides shouldn’t hyphenate their last names:
maybe i’m a total dork, but i’m kind of digging hardy-harr…
pam+fernando had a low key wedding in duvall surrounded by loving friends and family. they are seriously one of the sweetest and most humble people i’ve ever met. not to mention, every single email from pam has been so kind and polite. another one of my favorite things about pam+fernando is that they are such naturals in front of the camera! especially when it comes to kissing, they couldn’t keep their lips off of each other!
favorite shot of the day! by dave !
see what i’m talking about?
i love bubbles!
thanks for making my job so easy! congratulations, pam+fernando!
since we recently switched server, i think my email is acting funny. for some reason some of my emails are just not delivering to people. please let me know if you have contacted me and have not heard back from me yet. we will write you back again. sorry for the inconvenience.
also, we’ve noticed a few emails have been sending straight to the spam/bulk/junk mail section, so please check out your spam mail to see if our emails are in there. thank you!
