I decided to go for a name “make-over”! It was something I was contemplating about for about a week now, but so glad I went for it. Of course everything is the same underneath my profile; posts, location, wedding date, etc. I will keep my avatar up for quite some time until everyone gets used to the name change as well.
A little tidbit about my new name:
I wanted something a little more personable/relatable to who I am. I was originally going to go with “Ginger”, but it’s a common username. Thinking outside of the box, I decided to go with a french adj. for a female red-head (yay!) since my first name is French (though I’m Italian, but the Italian word was lame-oh!)
I hope there isn’t too much confusion since I know it does take awhile for people to get used to seeing an unfamiliar name on the boards. =)

@Rouquine: I’m so glad I saw this post, although I likely would have discerned your name change from seeing your avatar associated with the new name. I like it! It’s very pretty!
I am part French, and my maiden (now middle) name is French. However, I never took French, so, could you tell us the proper pronunciation of your new bee name?
@MlleBrielle: As you might expect, I love your name, too! 😀
