Sad News . . . July 13, 2010 I’m so sorry to hear about the tragic death of fellow blogger, Marija from Holding Court. While I didn’t know her personally, this world of design bloggers is so small, and when tragedy strikes one, it feels so close to home. Her husband wrote a beautiful tribute post on her blog yesterday, and it would be great if you could take a moment to read it (if you haven’t already) as sort of a tribute to her. It’s so easy to get caught up in the superficiality of daily life and forget that real people wake up everyday and are dealt catastrophic blows that will permanently alter the course of their life. As you go about your day today, please keep her husband and 2 young children in your thoughts & prayers. Remember that life is so short and we are not promised a “tomorrow”, so live & love to the fullest. Spend your days doing what you love, and nurturing the relationships you hold dear, because all we really have is today. RIP Marija.

Definitely praying for this family! Reply Michelle July 13, 2010 at 1:19 pm (7 years ago) That’s truly heart breaking news. Since I moved from NY from GA I’m driving so much more than I did in NY. You never think that when you step into your car it might be the last time you’ll see your kids and loved ones. I’m going home tonight with a reminder that family and friends are the only things that matter, everything else is secondary.
