How sweet it is.... my baby girl started piano lessons last week! I am so excited for her! She has been asking about piano for nearly 2 years now, and we finally found a great teacher who's not too far away from us. Here she is at the baby grand! (Sorry for the poor photo quality; I haven't remembered to take my camera anywhere lately, so it's been iPhone photos galore!) I guess I'm extra happy about Jaiden being interested in piano because I started playing piano at age 5. I can't say that I remember much about that time in my life. Who knows what I was playing back then... in the early '80's!?!? YIKES! What I do know is that I wasn't too fond of practicing. And I also know that I "fooled" my teacher for a while. Instead of reading music, I just played everything by ear. Not a good plan. At any rate, Mom made me keep practicing, and I'm glad I did. I took lessons through most of high school and started writing my own music about that time. Of course, nowadays I rarely tickle the ivories anymore. Staying busy doing everything else keeps me from that! Too bad, too...'cause I know I'm out of practice (literally). Very rusty, indeed. Maybe I can just learn again along with Jaiden! ;)
I am a full-time wife to an amazing husband and a full-time mom to a beautiful daughter, little boy and baby girl... and I have a home-based business with Uppercase Living and work part time to help keep our lawn business up and running. (Yes, if you are out and about, that's me, the tall blond on the Walker mower!) In a nutshell: I am a busy -- but VERY HAPPY -- gal! :)

So... if you're bored with your blog, make yourself a note that I do a little bloggy design work on the side! For a small fee, you pick the colors and/or scrapbook elements, and I can put together the background, main header, buttons, etc.! Here are a few examples (besides my own personal blog, of course)! * Oaklyn Hills Event Committee Blog * The Neat Get Neater
