If you know me well, you will know that my Nana was one of the most important people in my life.  We lost her to pneumonia a year ago today, and I am only just coming to terms with her loss.

I hope that you will indulge me and allow me to share some images of and about my sweet Nana, Jean.

All of these images were taken on February 9, 2011.

The date of her funeral.

I am so glad I have these photos.

Everything in the house is exactly as she left it.  From the notes on the fridge, to her tie-dye crocs under the living room table.

When I look at these images, I can still feel her with me.


As much as I miss her, I will be of good courage and will choose to remember her with a smile.  The world lost one of its best people.  I wish you all had gotten the chance to know her.

Hold your loved ones tight, darlings.
