“Music is a form of prayer, uniting people everywhere.”
Hello, sweet friends…
I hope you are doing well…
This summer marked a few benchmarks…6 years since our move from California…a surprise trip celebrating my sister’s birthday…the garden tour…
my (new to me) piano.
The anticipation of this beautiful instrument took on a life of it’s own… days were spent arranging, rearranging & creating space in our living room…obsessive thoughts of how everything would look afterwards.
Not to mention the excitement of getting to a time in life where I was able to choose a piano of my own. I have written several posts about the journey of pianos in my life…each have told a story…however, what I’m most grateful for is the gift which music has played.
Getting acquainted with this new friend has been a joy…and touches a deeper part of my soul…
which has now given Home a wonderful and different rhythm.
Another benchmark I forgot to mention were the peaches harvested from our peach tree. It is a special tree that was planted last year in memory of our beloved pet Cami…the peaches are so sweet just like her. With that being said I can’t think of a better way to end a summertime meal than with a sweet & delicious peach cobbler.
