becoming Mrs. Sutter


I am married now. I changed my name. My whole life I’ve been Sara Lamb… Nathan Lamb’s little sister… or at college just Lamb. I am no longer legally a Lamb. Now I am a Sutter.
How strange is that??

But it’s a good strange. The best kind of strange ever. I never thought I’d get married. I thought I was too much of a jerk. Certainly I am a selfish human being. Steve opened me up to the idea that I could maybe co-exist closely with another person. Maybe. And so we’re married. And I’m Mrs. Sutter. And I don’t really know how that will change me, but I know that it will. That’s a strange, good thing.

I debated changing the blog from slambfriend to something else. I can’t, though. I am Sara Lamb. I am S. Lamb. I am slamb. That makes me slambfriend. I can not change the slamb part anymore than I can change the friend part. I suppose ssutterfoe could be my alter-ego. Hmm.

Anywho, hello there. I’m back. I’m married. I’m still me. I’m still your Lamb. And I now live in a house with a well-working computer, consistent internet and a supportive husband so the blogging thing might go back to being a more regular thing. So yeah. Hi and stuff.

How is everyone? What’s going on? Have you survived a name change ever? Please tell me a story.

About SaraBSutter

I serve as the pastor of United Presbyterian Church in Goldfield, Iowa. My husband Steve and I are excited to be in a friendly small town and look forward to the years ahead. In addition to nerdy church stuff, I love reading books, writing, good coffee, cats, and football.

  1. Congratulations! You know, I had a name change almost 28 years ago. Funny thing, My last name changed, but I share a first name with my hubby. 😉

    Be prepared, though, when you least expect it…many, many years from now, you MAY be like me and write your maiden name on something important in front of lots of people and feel like a total dweeb.
