november 1, 2012. i can’t believe the year is almost over. can you?
if you follow Day of the Dead tradition, today – November 1st – is dia de los angelitos (day of the little angels). it is believed that babies and children who have passed away return to their loved ones for the day, to celebrate their lives.
i added lights and more flowers to our home altar today. (the blue box on the right holds photos and memorial/prayer cards of family and friends who have died.)
the vase reads “In Loving Memory
a symbol of
a life and love
meant for a candle or flowers, we had two of these vases at our wedding 7 years ago, one in memory of Lawrence’s sister, Adrie, and one for my paternal grandmother (Tita).
