Caleb and I haven't left the country since our honeymoon. Sad day, Ha! We have a little trip planned for later this year, and I realized I needed to have my name changed on my passport from my maiden name. I've learned that anything dealing with passports is a much longer process than expected so I stopped by the post office during lunch yesterday to get it started.
I thought/hoped it would just be a simple *free* change of name form. Oh, no no no. Because I waited more than a year for the name change, I had to pay for a whole new passport and re-do all of the forms.
On the bright side, I just happened to show up at the post office for the renewal on the very last day of the current Passport prices. Did you know the price goes from $75 to $110 effective today? I missed that memo. Plus the cost of pictures. Geez.
So, all you newlyweds, go change your name on your passport ASAP! Don't wait a year : )
