|Taken when Greta was just a couple weeks old.|
We welcomed a beaaauuttiiifffullll baby girl into our home yesterday. Her name is Samick, but I keep calling her Samwise. Oh yeah, and she’s a white baby grand piano. EEEeeee!!
Our neighbor’s (the saints we had over for dinner a few weeks back) parents are going on a mission for our church for a few years and needed someone to take care of their baby grand while they are away. We laughed when they mentioned it and jokingly (but not really) said, “Oh yeah, we’ll be HAPPY to take that off your hands.” And then the next day, they came over and asked if we were serious. And then I realized they were serious. And the planning began. They took care of everything from the delivery to tuning and we almost feel guilty to have such a beautiful instrument in our home free of charge.
We placed it in that large, completely bare space in our family room and it fit perfectly. And white? Wow, we scored.
It has definitely classed-up the whole space and I suddenly feel the need to vacuum the family room every day and get luxe curtains hung asap just to be worthy of such a gift. Do I play? No. But Chris does. Of course Chris does. He also plays the djembe and guitar and cooks and fixes stuff and works likes a maniac and loves me. He’s dreamy. Chris is also camera shy. I did manage to snap a picture of him playing when he got home from work last night and even sneaked a short video (I promised him only 30 seconds and I got 45..woot).
