A good portion of my life has been spent playing the piano for everyone else's diva moments. Now it's my turn. I invite you to accompany ME through my life's diva and, well, not so diva-like moments. It'll be entertaining. Promise.

I am grateful for...

Youtube videos that inspire me and make me smile...

A husband who chose to do this for a living...


That sounds like this...

Two beautiful children who bring me joy every day.

and time I get at home during the day with this one...

and while he's napping with these...

and this...

and sometimes this...

I could go on all day about what I'm grateful for, but today I have a sick girl at home who wants to play this...

so, to be continued...
