Tah-Dah!!

We have had this piano in our family for years. It is an Emerson & Co. and is very old. It is dated Oct. 23, 1896. My grandparents bought it for their children to learn, but it really got played more by the grandkids! This was my first piano that I learned on as I grew older and accomplished the art of playing.  Music is, always has been and forever will be a huge part of my life..and will be in my chidren's lives also. That is why my so amazing and cool husband bought me (& our family) what you see below!
SO, this is the Anniversary Grand Surprise! Brett took me by the Music Store in Orem and had me play around on a few pianos that I might wish to have since they were having a gigantic sale! When I sat down and fell in love with this one.. he said "It's Yours!" Emotions were so strong that I cried like a baby in the store! The manager thought it was so cute and said they hadn't seen that reaction in awhile. (Just leave it up to me!) I was so overwhelmed with feelings and so so happy..they found out that my DREAM had COME TRUE!  I couldn't believe that I was already going to get a Baby Grand Piano! Anyway, Brett made me the happiest girl ever that day! 
I was too excited... I played the second it was set up!
