When FI and I first got engaged, I was originally going to keep my middle name and drop my maiden name. My mom got be a really nice acrylic serving tray and recipe box. When I told my grandmother about this (my middle name is her maiden name), she got very upset. After her reaction and thinking it over, I decided to drop my middle name and use my maiden name as my new middle name.
So...I have these 2 monogrammed pieces that I can't use because they don't have my correct initials on them. I would love to give these to a good home (hehe) for free - as long as you're willing to pay for the shipping or if you live in the Raleigh area, I can meet you somewhere! Just let me know!
