I have finally decided to go for it and start up my blog. The recent loss of my grandmother prompted me to create an album as a gift for my grandfather, to memorialize their lives together. While we had many photos from throughout the years we did not have very many recent ones. My Nana was there, at every holiday or child’s birthday party, smiling her sweet smile but without any photographic evidence.
It was such a joy to sort through all of the old family photos with my daughter, teaching her where she comes from. I want my children to be able to look back with their children and grandchildren into the past. To see all of the love and joy that makes us family.

So for my grandmother, my Nana, my namesake, the original sweet Jean . . . I promise to capture our family and friends for future generations.
