Meet two of my favorite people. Whenever I think of Art and Karen, so many memories fill my mind. They've known me for most of my life. They are great friends of my mom and dad's. My dad would do a lot of "building" jobs for them when I was growing up and so I was at their house a lot. And my favorite thing to do with them...sit in their front room and play Art's Grand piano. I remember him sitting by me and kicking my foot off the peddle cause I held it too long. He had me playing "Jessica's Theme" perfectly ;) I could sit there all day and watch him play. See, Art plays by ear. And it's one of the most beautiful sounds you've ever heard.
I loved playing at their house. And when I was little, I asked Karen if I could get have my reception in her backyard when I got older. She said absolutely. So, when I got older, I did just that.
Anyway, meet Art and Karen.
They're darling and two of the nicest people you'll ever meet. I just love them.
