I found this violin ornament in my mom's junk-filled garage. Eve immediately knew what to do with it! She must be paying attention when I teach :) My mom said I can take home the violin on which I learned to play...it's only slightly bigger than this ornamental violin. Maybe I'll give Eve a few lessons when her attention span increases beyond 1 1/2 seconds.
Keyvan and I can't agree on when we actually met. It was sometime in either April or May of 2006, at a ward social in Provo Canyon. We played tennis for our first date, during which I learned that he spoke English. It took me a few more dates to realize that he was Persian, not East Indian, and a few dates after that to realize that I wanted to marry him. I professed my undying love shortly before boarding a plane to study in France for 4 months, during which we had long, expensive conversations lasting up to 5 hours. 4 months after I returned from France, Keyvan popped the question (in Provo Canyon), and 3 months after that, we were married! We live in Payson where Keyvan works as an Electrical Engineer. I work as a nurse doing Home Health and teach violin and piano lessons. Our daughter, Eve, joined our family January 2010 and makes us incredibly happy!
