{Moving On With My Life}

Oh, all right. I'll get off my dadgum high horse already: Reproduce! Have kids--have a million if you want. As long as I don't have to deal with them, I don't care.

What I do care about is the new arrival in my life as of late.

It's beautiful. We thought long and hard about whether we needed one--whether we could give it the attention it would require. There were heated debates if we should get a brand new piece, or one that had already been broken in by someone else. Selecting a style and type was difficult as well--since it's going to be with us for so long, it would be tragic to choose poorly.

In the end, everything worked out for the very very best. We could not be happier with the choice we made. Thank you to everyone who made it possible:

We love our new piano.

Congratulations! I wish we had a piano in our house, although no one knows how to play. I guess you could break it in when you come to babysit our kids!! I enjoy piano music, I think it is beautiful.

Yea!! Mom said you were getting one from Stuart and Linda...? They are the best! How sweet and generous of them. Will you please post pictures so we can see it? Better yet, let's i-chat and you can hold up your laptop so I can see it "in person." That will have to do until our summer visit. I'm so excited for you!!!

I didn't get a chance to comment on your kids blog - sorry, but we didn't have kids right away. People always asked "When are you going to have kids." ALWAYS. Ryan got sick of it and liked the idea of making up reasons why we didn't have children. His favorite was for me to tell people, "Sorry, my husband was in an industrial accident."

Oh that is BEAUTIFUL!!! You totally don't need children now... I told my mom the other day that I love Gregron more than I could a human child {w/ the one exception of Brig}. I hope that you can give your Piano that same kind of love! (My mother was not amused by that comment at all by the way... she was actually quite worried, haha!)
