Mrs. Christopher Henrichsen?!!

Let me be the first to tell you....I HATE being called "Mrs. Christopher Henrichsen!"  Don't get me wrong.  I love being married.  I love being married to Christopher Henrichsen, but, I, am not Christopher Henrichsen.  I am Lyndee Marie Curtis Henrichsen.  My name is who I am.  I have a long history of greatness in my family that has been woven into what makes me....Me!
I am fun, playful, creative, thoughtful, and sensitive.  I love going on adventures with my family, making gifts, and serving when and where I can.  But I am not Chris.  We do share some common interest, but we are two seperate people who seem to have two seperate roles in our family.  We didn't make a list and divide it up.  We just do it naturally.  I am so glad I married Chris, and I was a better person the day I married him.  But, next time you send us a Christmas card or a wedding invitation, remember to address it: Chris and Lyndee Henrichsen....or better yet, Lyndee and Christopher Henrichsen.


  1. AMEN!!! And is it bad to say I hate being called MRS. Parke? Mrs. Parke is my mother-in-law. I am good ol' Natalie or better yet, Nat.

    Love it, Lyndee.

  2. I know what you mean. It is always wierd to hear myself called Mrs. Ritchie.

  3. I'm not alone? That makes me feel better. Whenever I go into the school and the kids ask my name, it's Lyndee. They can call me Mrs. Henrichsen, but I SO prefer Lyndee. The name makes me all that more unique.

    Geneva is desperate to weigh in:
