There's some IN THE BOAT, just you wait.

I decided to change my name on all but the most legal sticky stuff (that shizz is so expensive and red-tapey in Wisconsin, y'all), taking my new husband's last name as an extension of my own. This is a deeply personal decision and one that has taken me a long, long, time to make. My final trepidation with the change was whether or not I'd be honoring my feminist views; or, more specifically, if other people thought I was a good feminist. But then I read this post on Offbeat Bride and I felt better about it. After a few days though, I feel like I really made the right decision for me.
As many of you know, however, my last name is the first word of this blog's title. After 3 years, I'm not about to re-brand, so I decided that I'll be keeping it.
