Legally Me

Ooooh! Today was the day I became legally Me, not just an AKA. Getting to the local county courthouse Amber and I waited for our friend Heather to show up- and then waited some more as the previous proceeding ran over a bit. It was a gorgeous sunny day in the single digits, crisp and clear, a perfect omen.
Amber had her name change back in September with the same judge, who remembered us (not many of "us" coming through here so I'm sure it was memorable :)) and it went a simply as can be- a few questions about my intent and to get the spelling right. And then it was done, that awkward guy name gone and my Teresaness all legalised. Cool!
Now for the ongoing adventure of getting the "F" on everything where the "M" now is seen......

So very happy for you finally getting to be yourself in the eyes of the law as well as our own!

Thank you as well for looking after Amber on her recent trip...I am grateful!

I hadn't ever thought of getting an "F" as something to look forward to until you said that the way you did!

You look fantastic! What a day that must have been!

I know it's years after the fact, but I was thinking about this as I was commenting on Amber's blog and came back through. I'd been meaning to say for a while, but kept getting distracted that in this picture and in general you remind me of Lisa Edelstein. And yes, that's a good thing, she played Dr. Cuddy on House and so many other great roles.
