I am officially Karyn Abercrombie Hopkins.

I dropped Elizabeth (sorry Mom!) .... really my everyday name will be Karyn Hopkins- but for email and work purposes, it will show up as Karyn Abercrombie Hopkins (not hyphenated) ... anyway, exciting stuff!

I got a little teary-eyed there at the Social Security Office. It's really weird to like "belong" to your daddy all those years and now all the sudden, you don't. You "belong" to someone else... weird that women have to sort of take on someone else's name- but I'm not going to get into all that because it would be a hard subject to try to take on.

Point is, I was proud to be an Abercrombie all those years and now I'm proud to be a Hopkins. But I could not completely say goodbye to Abercrombie, so I kept it. I think it was a good thing to do.

Anyway, taking a day off really puts you behind- so I gotta go - but more tomorrow!

I know exactly what you are saying about letting your last name go. I changed my middle name to Curtis because I just couldn't let my Daddy go like that. I take a lot of pride in being a Curtis, and he's still the very best man in my world. Bobby's great too, and at some point he will probably be tied with Dad... may take a decade or two, though!!! :)
