I've decided to confess.
For those of you who know me personally, you know my email address includes my married name. What most of you do not know is that I created that email address before I was married.
Even before I was engaged.
Even a whole year before I was engaged.
Possibly even within the first two weeks of our relationship.
it is true.
and beyond embarrassing.
In short, I have owned my email address for 6.5 years now, but my 5 year wedding anniversary is next month.
David likes to tell people this. I have refrained.
But now I speak. I have been married nearly 5 years. I have born DH's child. I am pregnant with our second child. I've decided to own up. But 6.5 years ago, gmail was still new enough that some really good email addresses were still available. What if I married DH and then the perfect email was no longer available? I had to create it IMMEDIATELY or face dire consequences. Very dire indeed. You may spend your whole life trying to get an email address without a number in it. And then you get your chance. And you take it.
I know I'm not the only one.
