My Other Piano Man



Yes, he really can play and he's good that's why I love this picture so much. I remember the photographer setting this up thinking it was a neat picture. Then Bill sat down and started playing and she was so excited because the picture would have meaning and not just be a staged shot. It is one of our favorites.
This was such a fabulous day 15 years ago today. We were so busy then, not much has changed except Bill has less hair and mine is graying. Oh yea and we have all those kids! And we owned and sold a bunch of rental property (thank God for the selling!). We've built a house, had twins, built another house, had Erin. I'm pretty much done moving and my body is yelling at me that it is on the verge of breaking down, so I am pretty much going to have to be done with the babies too. Good thing I feel that area is complete! We are so blessed to have our health and our children. I have wanted to be a mom since I was Lindy and Paige's age so I think I am a very successful person in that area.
Degrees have been finished, careers set in motion and both have taken off, especially mine! There is nothing in the world I would have done differently, especially saying I do to Bill on July 16, 1994.
Love you Bill!
Note - I think this is so cute! We had the best day at our wedding as I am sure most couples have. But we had a great day with everyone who helped us make it possible. One was our fabulous wedding coordinator, Jo Panarello. My sister spoke with her 2 years ago when planning her own wedding about some details and was looking at her website. And there we were, 4th row down, far right! Click the picture and there are a couple of pictures from the wedding and the end of the reception. We got married before internet everything! We had so much fun working with Jo and she kept telling us what a great time she had with us and our families, how sweet to keep that old, now "out of date" wedding style I'm sure, on her website! She was a wonderfully sweet person to work with if you know anyone who needs something coordinated!

To my first niece, and Bill of course, I wish you a hearty congratulations on your 15th Anniv., and I am so happy you've provided all of us with 5 beautiful children.

Keep posting pictures that get MY eyes full of tears, and I'll need a new keyboard!

The picture of you, Margot, on the piano is priceless, and while "staged" I've heard Bill on his keyboards, and know he's very talented.

Love you,
Uncle Bobby
