Celebrate the Small Things

Celebrate the Small Things is a weekly bloghop now hosted by Lexa Cain. The idea is to post anything you want to celebrate from the last week, no matter how small.

Here's what I'm celebrating this week:

- The piano playing is still going well - I can almost play a whole piece now, just a few more bars to learn. I'm slowly getting better at sight-reading, but it's a hard thing to learn!

- I'm going to be bridesmaid for my sister when she gets married in July. The bridesmaid dresses arrived a couple of weeks ago, and we're all meeting up to see them and try them on tomorrow. I can't wait to see what they look like!

- Pottermore are hosting a Wizarding World Book Club in June, and as I am a huge Harry Potter nerd, I'm very excited about this! Any excuse to read and/or talk about Harry Potter is fine by me! 


  1. Congrats on almost learning a whole piano piece! Yes, sight reading is hard, but you'll get better and better. I bet your bridesmaid dress is lovely! Have a great weekend!

  2. I admire your piano playing skills! My son takes lessons too. I struggled with the myself. I can't seem to understand the notes all at once, being lefthanded, I guess I have my own set of unique challenges. LOL

  3. Just keep practicing - you'll be playing the whole thing soon!

  4. Hi Laura - well done on the piano playing ... fun to learn and to be able to sight-read ... Being bridesmaid to your sister will be lovely - enjoy the fitting tomorrow ... have fun in the build up ... cheers Hilary

  5. Sight-reading is hard. It's a skill I never quite mastered. Always had to settle for faking it.

    Enjoy the bridesmaid dress fitting! I had a great time the last time I went through that.

  6. Sight reading is hard, but it gets easier the more you do it. You're doing really well to be able to play a whole piece already.

  7. How exciting....your sister's wedding! Formal weddings are so beautiful. My husband and I took up piano recently. Have always wanted to do. Have a nice weekend!

  8. I hope we can see pictures from your sister's wedding. I love weddings and I'm sure you'll both be gorgeous. Congratulations on learning a whole piano piece! That's amazing. I'll bet you have lots of musical talent.

  9. How exciting to have your sister's wedding come up. I hope you include a picture of the dress (always curious). An entire piano piece is not an easy thing to learn, so yay to getting there!
