When Travis and I started getting serious we started talking about getting married. One day we were joking about merging our last names (it was probably more me joking since for the record I will be changing my last name per my future husband’s request).
If you combine Durnan and Petty you get two awesome combos – Durtty or Penan. Well, Durtty was the obvious better choice. It became a running joke among my friends and they even put us in their calendars as “Dinner with the Durttys,” etc.
And that is the legend of Durtty.
