i am a lucky gal



Why yes. Yes I am. For starters, I was overwhelmed with the kindness and thoughtfulness of your comments from my previous post. You guys really are awesome! My gal is doing better, and after speaking with the principal and her homeroom teacher things are really looking up! But there is something more. Almost more than I can handle. You see that piano in the picture above? That is mine. All mine. And you wanna know how much I paid for this awesome piece? Nada. I think the moving boys may have consumed some beer, but that was it! It needs to be tuned, but I bet I can handle that! The wood and the simplicity of this piece is almost more than I can handle. It truly has a good home and will be much appreciated and played.

I also had an opportunity to photograph a master class at Ballet Midwest this weekend. The talent of the teacher and the company was stunning. The rest of the pics are over on flickr if you wanna take a peek. The teacher was a former company member that went on to dance with the Joffery Ballet and has danced professionally all over the country. Yes, I am a very lucky gal this week.

Love the piano!!

I'm sorry to hear that your daughter has been having such a difficult time. But it sounds like you are taking the steps needed to resolve the issue.

Wow. That piano is wonderful! We've been looking for an older console piano like that for a while and I see yours and it's a good reminder to keep looking. Congrats!

Glad to hear things are looking up for your little one, too. :) We did miss you Saturday - that little bag was darling.

not only are you a very lucky girl, you were also a very missed girl this weekend!

Oh that makes me miss my piano a bit... we gave ours away because it was just too big of a pain to move around... Still if you got yours for free, that sounds worth moving it to me! :)

I know you'll take good care that piano. I am so glad we found a good home for it. However, you did give a pretty dang awesome swap for it. Glad to hear missy is doing better. I'll see you in a few at MOPS!!

Great piano! And I'm really enjoying the ballet photos. I loved my ballet class as a kid (despite my clutziness).

Katie Jean said...

oh Heidi I'm so glad to hear she's doing better!

Lovely piano too you lucky gal!

Alice said...

Congratulations on the piano. I'm sure it will bring hours and hours of enjoyment to your whole family. While I don't play mine often any longer, I did play all my favorite Christmas carols and hymns last month. It didn't always sound so good but I had fun doing it.
