I love, love, love being Mrs. Dunson.  Why?  Well, it means I’m married to my husband first and foremost.  It also means that I am following in the footsteps of my esteemed mother-in-law who also married a Walter Dunson.  I love being Mrs. Dunson because it makes me “The Mrs.”  When we were engaged I considered keeping my name.  I had had my name for a long time and I was worried about losing part of my identity.  What I didn’t realize is that my new identity as a wife still contains much of who I was.  However, I am no longer a single girl.  For me, it felt completely natural and right to take my husband’s name.  I feel more like a wife with it and wouldn’t have it any other way.  I also realize that I haven’t lost a thing – only gained!
