Smells As Sweet

Cross two more off the to-do list. I went by SSA to change my name and then to the DMV to get a new license. The license I needed anyway because it was up for renewal and god golly my old pic was hideous.
I decided on hypenating my last names. I knew I wanted both I just wasn't sure if wanted to tack Jeff's on the end or hypenate it. My birthday cards came both ways and I decided I liked the hyphen. The decision on which names to have I made many months ago. I want to match Keegan and I want Jeff's name too. I have no interest in going back to my maiden name. No offense to my family. I am not that person any more. And to answer the whole "taking a man's name" thing, my maiden name is my father's so it was already a man's name. This way at least I got a choice in the matter. It takes forever to write but I think it is worth it.
