Hello, my name is Ellen Bryan.
You might call me that girl on TV in the morning.
Some people still call me Miss Ohio.
My mom calls me Ellen Marie.
But for as long as I can remember, my sisters have called me Elle. Just Elle.
So I've learned to cherish the fact that only two of the most important people in my life call me Elle. And they both know me at my core.
They know I don't just sing in the shower but all. day. long.
They know I consider sugar a primary food group.
They know I wish I could wear a baseball cap all day instead of doing my hair.
They know I prefer to spend Friday nights on the couch with a biography.
They know I cry when I'm happy.
