Hi! Thanks for visiting "Lady and the Blog". I would love for you to learn a little more about me and my family! Hope you enjoy your visit!

Here It Is: A Video Of Me Playing The Ukulele (No Judgements Please)

I started to take lessons a few weeks ago and am trying to learn ‘When I’m 64’ by the Beatles. I can’t transition from one chord to another as quickly as the song needs, but I am trying!! I had a few emails from friends and family asking for a video and I felt a little brave this evening. SO, here we are! AHHHHHH

I’m SO beginnier! PLEASE no judgements! LOL!

I’m having a lot of fun and that is all that counts, right?
