Take the road less traveled by.

I personally cannot stand my last name.People are always asking,did I say that right?At this point I usually go sure thats correct.Even though they are way off.Even when we order food my dad always says "Edwards" which is my moms last name.I love my first name Sarah.It means princess which is kind of weird becaue I'm nothing like one even though I'm spoiled.My first name represents something that my parents picked together.Something they shared.Like a sort of closeness between them.I've honestly never got to experience that closeness for they were only married a short year.But they lived together when I was in kindergarten.I love the way my parents say my name together,like I was a part of them,something they had and I had.Something we shared.My middle name was named after my great grandmother who was German and lived 96 years.She died when I was 2.My name is 85% German.I wouldn't ask for my name any other way.It's what makes me unique.
