THIS is the last time I will write to you as Amie Brokenshire as I prepare to take two weeks off work to get married.
When I return I will be Amie Price and, even though I said it would never happen, I am marrying a farmer!
Although, having grown up on a dairy farm, cereal farming does seem like a better lifestyle without the 3.30am starts and twice-a-day milking.
I am the first to admit I am a little apprehensive about the name change, my name is part of my identity and how people know me.
I could be one of those modern day women and make a stance to retain my maiden name, but that all gets a bit hard down the track with questions asked about whether I am eternally engaged or a single woman.
Plus my partner wants me to take his name and I am not keen to have children with the hyphenated surname Brokenshire-Price!
However, the overall concept of marriage is a great one and planning a wedding has been a lot of fun.
As we only want to do it once, we want to make sure it is a day and night to remember.
The past three and a half years on Yorke Peninsula have been great and I am looking forward to plenty more to come.
And, like Tavia Rankin (see profile page 17), whilst I am getting a new last name, I very much doubt that will earn me local status for a long time yet!
Nick Perry will be at the helm in my absence and I look forward to returning for the March 26 edition as Amie Price!
