The day I've been waiting for!

Thank you to the state of Florida for FINALLY validating our marriage and sending me this awesome piece of paper to prove it!! Now I feel like I can get on with my life, and not be unsure about what name I need to use any time I write it down. Tomorrow I'll be headed to the social security office and then to the DMV to get all this name change garbage taken care of and then I will finally and officially be, Mrs. Dana Richards. I should probably start practicing my new signature so it doesn't look terrible on my license forever haha. Now I just need to call Keith's benefits department so I can get some health insurance and we will be completely settled into our new married life :) Thank goodness!


  1. You are motivating me to finally get my name changed. However, we never got an official marriage document in the mail so that's just one more step I have to add onto the list.

  2. I wish that I could give you some positive encouragement, but getting my name changed has truly been a frustrating and tireless process ughhhh. I just got my new drivers license and instead of printing my name "Dana Beal Richards" with my maiden name as my middle name (just like I had filled out on the form AND explained to the lady at the desk !!!) it of course reads "Dana Ruth Richards" and now I have to pay to send it back and get a new one. Ready to quit haha GOOD LUCK YOU CAN DO IT IT'S SO WORTH IT! WOO!


We love hearing what you have to think!
