Back in January of this year, I decided to learn to play the ukulele. I’d heard that learning a musical instrument in middle age (ahem) can help improve memory and ward off certain types of dementia. So I bought myself a little concert ukulele and proceeded to torture everyone in the house.
Fast forward to June when my husband bought me this beautiful baritone ukulele. I’ve had to relearn all of my chords, but it’s been worth it. I am now able to irritate my family in a much lower key.
