What's in a Name?

“A person has to keep something to herself or your life is just a layout in a magazine.”—Grace Kelly
I love writing posts for this blog. I love sharing my opinion with you about things I've read or seen as well as sharing some of the photographs I've taken. And I love hearing from you. But along the lines of what Grace Kelly said, I still like to keep some things private, to not share all of the details of my life and those of my friends (and let's be honest, not everything is interesting). When I first started this blog I chose to post under a pen name—Mrs. Parker. An homage to one of my heroes—Dorothy Parker—it was a way for me to keep a modicum of privacy while still sharing my views and interests with you. 

It's now been more than two years since I posted my first piece on this blog and for a while I've been thinking of retiring Mrs. Parker. Don't get me wrong, I adore the moniker. But I do feel it's time to be a little more open with you. Don't worry, I'm not about to turn into a Kardashian (the horror). And so while I will continue to write posts about the original Mrs. Parker and others, from now on I will sign them with my first name (and when I have a moment, I'll go back and change my photo credits to reflect the same). So I hope that you will continue to keep stopping by and reading the latest tales of a madcap heiress. It really means the world to me. Thank you, Michele.
