It’s been a few years now since this particular vision became a reality. And you know, I still enjoy my shiny black baby grand every single day! How did it come to appear in my living room? Here’s how the story goes…

Have you ever had a dream come true? Since I was a little girl, I’ve dreamed of having my very own baby grand piano. I could picture it exactly. Shiny ebony lacquer with rich ivory keys and wonderful notes filling my life with music. I didn’t know how, when or where my dream would be realized but I kept dreaming all the same. In fact, when redecorating my living room with my best buddy and designer Marsha Peterson, I instructed her to ‘leave a space’ in the design where my baby grand would fit right in!

Well, my prayers were answered in the form of Craig’s List and a wonderful guy named Jim.  He’d run an ad and was reluctantly prepared to give up his beloved baby due to an out of state move into a much smaller home. We exchanged emails, we talked on the phone, I made an appointment to go see it, and then… the VERY DAY the movers were coming to put his piano in storage… VOILA! It found its new home with me!!!

We met at 8:30 in the morning and it was love at first sight… me with the piano, of course (although I admit to having some pretty warm and thankful feelings toward Jim, too.) It was Christmas coming early on December 1st and Jim was my Santa! We talked and I assured him the baby would find a loving home with me. Apparently he agreed, because he called the movers and changed the delivery location from the storage warehouse to my house, By 5 o’clock that afternoon, the piano was playing “Misty” for me.

You never know when your dreams will come true, but for me it happened when I took action. I had held my dream in my heart for years, but it wasn’t until I spoke it out loud, I looked on the web and I sent an email that things started happening.

I took action and the Universe answered in a BIG Baby Grand wonderful kind of way and we’ll be making beautiful music together for years to come!

Do you have a dream you’ve been holding close? What small step could you take toward making your dream come true? We hope you’ll share!
