Throwback Thursday and a little more about my chosen name.
CHARLIE PEACHES SHELTON.
CHARLIE - A name my Papa Rudy gave me the day I was born. Growing up when he called me Charlie I smiled every time, the sound Charlie makes me smile to this day..my Papa Rudy is my grandpa on my fathers side..
PEACHES- My cousin Bryce started calling me Peaches since I could remember. I chose it because of the love I feel behind it...
SHELTON- My chosen last name is my mother’s maiden name, the first part of my life I wore my fathers name, part two I am embracing my mother’s roots..
I believe we should spark joy in as many ways as possible, my chosen name brings me a ton of joy every time I hear it. Thank you to my friends, family and community for modeling acceptance and love. You are all examples of the change that is happening in the world. I think it’s important to share good stories. There is a lot of progress happening in the world everyday..
