My memory came to life… and a giveaway. What?!

A little off topic today, but I wanted to share!
I absolutely LOVE photography. I love capturing moments and of course as owner of a music studio, capturing moments of connection.

I recently went on my first trip abroad with my husband for our 20th anniversary to Ireland. It was a dream trip and there were so many moments to take in. Thankfully I brought my nice camera with me and captured some gems.

Truth is, there are SO many websites out there for photo printing. It’s kind of overwhelming. SO overwhelming that I avoid it. So, I have all these digital images just WAITING to be printed and hung in my home but I’m just not making it happen. Through business to business networking I met Sarah from Canvas Factory. My interest peaked about getting one of my memories on canvas and I went for it. I ordered one of my Ireland moments.

The ordering process was SO EASY. I was so incredibly relieved when I realized it wasn’t going to take me hours to figure out how to get my order set up right. In fact, the entire process took me all of 10 minutes.

I clicked on Canvas Prints, but they actually have two other options, acrylic or metal. The metal intrigues me too! Anyway, I selected to create my own canvas single print but they also have options to create a collage, and even split images and wall displays. I was pleasantly surprised by the reasonable pricing and quick easy ordering process. I chose a wrap around option where the sides of the canvas are also part of my print.

It was SOOOOO exciting when my canvas came in LESS THAN A WEEK! Seriously fast! It was packaged safely and protected well.

It’s honestly so beautiful. It is a work of art and feels like someone painted it. It takes me right back to that moment on the beach around the Ring of Kerry in Ireland. The print is very high quality and the colors are perfect! I’m really excited to order some more.

Why these moments mean everything.

I first stepped into a Kindermusik classroom as a brand new mom to our daughter Anna. She was three months old, and I was SO nervous! I had no idea what to expect. I had resigned from my job as a Music Therapist and Activity Director in the geriatric population to stay at home with Anna and there was no doubt in my mind music would be a part of our world. The minute I entered that Kindermusik class, my entire world changed. It felt like home. I adored being a Kindermusik parent in class. I was blown away by the child centered approach to learning, the accepting loving environment and the incredible parent education I received. It was one of the most precious times that I now realize go by far to quickly. Considering my degree in Music Therapy, I was quickly convinced to teach Kindermusik and so I became licensed. I loved teaching it. I loved attending it. Thanks to my daughter Anna, who led me there, I found my true passion.
Aiden and I at Kindermusik
Fast forward a few years. I was extremely pregnant with our son Aiden when the studio I worked for closed up their business and I lost my Kindermusik teaching job. After Aiden was born, I was such a happy mom of two, but there was something missing. My little man needed to have Kindermusik and I SO craved those moments with him. I knew the incredible developmental benefits it had already had on our daughter, not to mention the many milestones I had witnessed of others in classes I taught. I honestly couldn’t imagine not having the opportunity to enjoy the Kindermusik activities with him. So, in 2005, I selfishly created Grow and Sing Studios for Aiden. I even convinced my dear friend, a music educator whom I met in music school to work with me, so I could attend as a mom! And so, the roller coaster of business ownership, mixed with being Kindermusik mom began.

It’s been 16 years since I became licensed and I have loved every moment. My husband Will came on board and Grow and Sing Studios became our family business. Our mission, to connect as many families as we can through the magic of music is our focus. We are blessed with such an incredible team of educators who we consider family. Our children both graduated Kindermusik after attending the entire continuum of classes. Anna is now almost 17 and Aiden is 13! I can’t express how much I cherish the moments I had with them at Kindermusik in their first years. The cuddles, the dances, the precious unplugged, uninterrupted moments. They are what life is about. That is what we want for you. So that when you are in the hustle and bustle of car lines, band rehearsals, and sports practices in 16 or so years, you can look back and remember that fun dance, silly song, or quiet time rocking song you shared with your baby at Kindermusik and cherish them too.See you soon.
