This beauty arrived yesterday from Niels' mom and step-dad's house in Arizona. They recently purchased a newer piano to help someone out financially. Consequently, they decided to surprise Niels with the piano that he learned to play on growing up. Apparently, Niels was the whole reason a family friend gave his family this piano many years ago. Needless to say, he was very surpised, and he is one happy and thankful man.
Ironically enough, earlier this year we were fantasizing about bigger purchases we want to make later in life after the heaps of student loan debts start to diminish. One of Niels' first items was a grand piano. So, a HUGE thank you to Dave and Julie for accelerating his dream.
I am really excited to have what I feel is a family heriloom. I am especially eager to tell our future kids that they are learning on the piano their dad learned on. Very cool to me.
I don't play, but I wish I did everytime I walk by her. I guess I am content listening to Niels serenade me for now. =)
