Realized that with my name change I’ll have a new signature. This reminded me of elementary school when I used to waste tons of class time practicing my signature. Have other bees practiced what your signature will be?

@renwoman: lol definitely!
I still am not used to it and I’ve been married a year and a half.
I just can’t get the flow right… I used to have such a whirley last name and now its just kind of juttery… if that makes sense?
I need to practice MORE actually.. thanks for reminding me haha

I so did. To be totally honest I still love signing anything with my not-so-new signature. I tried a few variations and just went with what was natural for me. The funny part is now DH and I have nearly identical signatures.

I definitely did. Just because a signature is something that you do almost automatically…I wanted to try and get to a point where I could just write my new name without thinking. It’s been a bit tough, but easier every time! And I like how it looks. 🙂

LOL I thought I was the only one with problems!!!
The only time I write cursive is when I sign something, so I literally don’t even remember how to write some of the letters in my new name ….
I’ve been practicing but …. it looks awful!

Yes, I definitely practiced mine… I’m still working on it (been married about 6 months). Sometimes DH comes across my “practice sheets” and he thinks it’s adorable.

Yep! lol It’s not too bad. I don’t like my first name though, the spelling isn’t what I would’ve chosen if I had a say =P so it doesn’t look as good as I’d like!

@renwoman: yeah, I practiced. Now we’ve been married over a year and my signature is still terrible! Oh well…

I had to practice a lot and was kinda grouchy about it, because his last name is way harder to write in cursive. But having to slow down a bit actually improved my signature a ton – it’s not just an ugly scribble anymore.

I tried. But there’s a w and a z and I’m really struggling with it! I need to practice more, honestly.
