As has become tradition on this day each year, my site is pink in honor of Nana, the amazing woman who left this earth three years ago today and who touched so many lives. She continues to be a significant part of who I am today and inspires me always.

The last Thanksgiving we spent with Nana was at her house in Sacramento in 2001. It was also her first time having a mimosa, to which Jen and I were ecstatic to have the honor of introducing her. She was not familiar with the orange juice and champagne delight, but she lit up at the concept and smiled that smile that made you feel happy and warm all over.

Nana really knew what was important in life and enjoyed nothing more than spending time with family and friends. It was the little things that could make her smile light up the room, as it did for all of us that Thanksgiving day.

I love you and miss you, Nana.

    Wow, I cannot believe its been 3 years already. It feels like yesterday that I was talking to her over the phone or even writing emails to her. She was really an amazing person whose legacy is still something my Dad likes to discuss.
