There is so much joy and beauty - and the touch of sadness, remembrance, grief, death.  This time of year fits it so perfectly, the inward turn to memory and melancholy, the evidence of beautiful decay and the cycles of life all around us blazing golden and dulling to brown.

Today, please join me in the International Wave of Light at 7pm, to remember and cherish all of those touched by infant loss and miscarriage.

I am guest posting over at Crafty by Nurture too, on the subject of baby loss, if you would like to pop over and see.

So many Autumns now, remembering loss, and holding all of those who share in grieving close.  Love to you today, all of you.  xxx

  2. Some of my candles will be for your family in memory of your precious boy and the two precious kisses who went before him, while I remember my own sweet baby Ellie Rose. Hugs

    1. Today is a day when it's hard to be authentic, when I feel like a mess and would rather hide than talk. The love of friends like you pulls me back to truth-speaking. xxx

      The bunny dress is from Boots. It proved impossible to resist. ;)
