p52 | honouring loved ones

One of my very favorite traditions that we observe here in Sweden is All Saints Day. No matter if one is religious or not, and no matter how or why it came about, I think it is such a beautiful and respectful thing to honour loved ones who are no longer with us by lighting candles and placing flowers at the cemetaries. The husband and I do this every year and we spend some time talking about the people we have lost and stand together in silence. It always moves me and touches me so profoundly. Not only thinking and talking about our loved ones, but also the actual process itself.

All Saints Day was yesterday, so of course this week's photo had to portray that.
