Since I was in second grade, I have played piano. When I moved to my first apartment after college, I remember thinking I was more interested in getting a piano than a bed! I would love to have had a grand piano, but finances made that out of the question.
My mom helped me find a used piano in the newspaper ads, I bought it, and was off. Over the years my dad had told me he’d buy me a grand piano someday, if I was a “good girl”, but I supposed either I wasn’t good enough or he just forgot, because that never happened.
Anyway, I continued to hope I could get a grand piano. And for Christmas 2007, it finally happened!
