Dreams and the Cello...


I am here to confess a long-time dream I've had but never expressed or chased. I absolutely adore the cello. Though I have played piano since the age of seven, I was never satisfied. My brain is not the type to understand 88 keys. I believe I could tackle a set of strings with much more ease.
8 years of piano lessons still couldn't make me fall in love as much as one cello concerto on the radio can. I stuck with it because we had a piano and I had access to fabulous teachers.
Funnily enough, I played piano better before my lessons. I always had a knack to hear music and put it to the instrument. My teachers would send me home with the sheet music and I just couldn't get it. When they sent me home with a cd of them playing, I'd have it within a couple hours. That makes me think I could do pretty well with a cello on my own. I'm not in a place to take lessons but I don't think I'd need them. I could get to the point where I could play well enough to satisfy me. I can read sheet music well enough and have ample inspiration.
It is my belief that dreams stay just that...dreams unless you do something about it. This is me doing something about it. I'm putting my dream out there in hopes that the universe will hear. Someday, I will make this happen for myself. I am now accountable to make it happen because I put it out there. That's how I work! Here's hoping for sooner rather than later!

About Me

My photo
I'm a new wife and an even newer mom. I have a secret dream to be super-mom. I love to craft, cook, dance and fill my life with as many adventures as possible. I'm slightly crunchy granola but enjoy a good steak. I'm right brained and type B (with some type A tendencies). I thrive best when I get to use my creative juices. I dabble in photography and party planning. I play piano and have a dream to learn the cello. I want to make the most of this one, short life I find myself living.

About This Blog

This blog was originally intended to be a personal journal of my pregnancy journey and all that that entails--shared with only a few close family members. It was a way for me to keep them posted on all things baby and occasionally post a picture of my growing torso so they could see the progress. After several posts, I started to get hooked on other blogs and became motivated to attempt to do more with mine. We'll see how it goes....
