It was a snowy cold day this morning (third snow already this season—blah), so I got K & B all bundled up to go catch the bus. I thought Berkeley looked so adorable in her hooded scarf that I just had to snap a picture.
Oh, wait—what’s that behind her? Could that be our new PIANO??
It’s a 52” upright, which means the strings in the piano are as long as the strings in a GRAND piano. So while it’s NOT a grand piano, it can produce a comparable sound quality and it takes up much less room! Sounds grand to ME!
See the snow outside reflecting in her beautiful finish?
I love it. Never mind that I don’t even play. . . I think it’s beautiful and I am so excited to have it in our home. This morning as I was lying in my bed wishing it wasn’t time to get up yet, I heard Kendall playing downstairs. Even though it was the first morning I’ve woken up to that sound, it felt completely normal. . . like we’ve always had a piano in our house. This is how it should be. Now we just need to find a teacher for Kendall, and maybe, just MAYBE, it will motivate me to re-learn how to play right along with her! No promises, though. Remember, I’m working on my rock climbing goal as well!
P.S. I realized I never posted about our new floors after they were finished (back in June!) but you can get a look at them in these pictures (it was previously carpet in these rooms)! I am working on some before/after posts that I will hopefully finish in the not too distant future that will include all of the projects I’ve done (or had someone else do) since we moved in!
P.P.S. I just went outside to measure the snow we got and we have 9 1/2 inches on the ground! And, still, school wasn’t cancelled. Will I ever stop longing for our Charlotte/Austin years?
