one aspect of getting married that i didn't give much thought to until recently is the whole name change thing. i know some people will say, "don't change your name just 'cuz you think you have to!" i don't view changing my name as a chore or as an old tradition i feel i must adhere to. i actually WANT to take alex's last name. i think there's something romantic about it. i just feel a little sad to bid adieu to my name that i've uttered and written thousands upon thousands of times. i'm sure i'll get over it in no time...but for now i will mourn the loss of "marie antoinette gabriel" and welcome with (somewhat) open arms "marie antoinette awn."
