If I could marry an instrument...

This is long overdue.  About two months ago my dad -- who is also the greatest dad in all the world -- helped me buy my very own, very beautiful, very wonderful, (and now very tuned) piano! 

I know excitement doesn't translate very well via internet, so you're just going to have to believe me when I tell you how completely stoked I was.  Like, the excitement level was almost comparable to when I got married. 

Anyway, we've all been settled in nice and cozy for a while now.  I took some pictures a few weeks ago and never got around to editing them. 

Once on the computer I realized how awful they are (like, really bad), so I'm going to retake them with the nicer camera someday.  The bunting I made with a thrifted Ikea duvet cover and the doilies I made with scrap fabric and lace; black statue we got on our honeymoon in Mexico; the birdies were a wedding gift, the oil warmer we bought at Bed, Bath, and Beyond, the vase thingy was thrifted; awesome succulent candle was a wedding gift; sweet silhouette picture was a wedding gift from my cousin - she used a picture she took of Tony and I on our wedding day and came up with that  beautiful piece of art.

I'm in love with my piano.  On my list of most cherished items, it's right there at the top with the Holy Scriptures and my glitter gold Toms.  It's sound is deliciously rich and full, not tinny or twangy or too sensitive.  Perfect.

Still editing trip pictures and such.  Tony's making venison stew in the crockpot for dinner that smells amazing.  And I noticed last night that I now have 10 followers!  Hooray!  Thank you!

Happy Saturday! love, kayla


  1. one of my biggest pet peeves: when i go to my boyfriends house and all his does is ignore and play piano.

    one of the things i miss now that he is gone away at school: ignoring me and playing the piano.

    I cant play at all but I sooo miss the sounds of his fingers on those keys.

    Congrats!That is REALLY exciting.

  2. Wow! It is gorgeous!
    Your enthusiasm is MUCH shared!

  3. i COMPLETELY understand your enthusiasm. :D
    also, your piano is BEAUTIFUL and i love the hanging thing...which i am blanking on the name for at this moment. but i like it though.
