Okay I keep saying that but lots of things have been becoming official lately. This time I've officially changed my last name. Before, it was Tamara LeeAnne Kenyon.
To be quite honest, I had a very hard time imagining the thought of changing my last name. Some brides might find that strange, but I've become quite attached to my last name. I also consider myself an independent woman and have wondered why I need to change it at all.
I couldn't change my last name until after the honeymoon because my passport and all of the flight information was under my maiden name. That made me very excited because it meant that I could keep my last name just THAT much longer.
I had also gone through many scenarios.... Tamara LeeAnne Kenyon-Messinger? Tamara Kenyon Messinger, Tamara LeeAnne Messinger? I couldn't quite decide which would work. And for business sake I had already established a brand as being Tamara Kenyon Photography. Through all the figuring out and after two months I finally did it. The name is Tamara Kenyon Messinger.
I decided that since my middle name was on my birth certificate that it would always be my middle name. For legal documents I hardly used my middle name anyway. All my credit cards were just first and last name.
Anyway, it might not seem like that big of a deal for dudes, but they just don't know. In the long run it'll be nice for our children to have the same name as us, so I was happy to oblige.
So I'm done with the gibberish, here's one of our wedding photos. Yes - that means I am in full possession of them. Whoop. You'll be see those tomorrow. Yeah!
