I had another post planned for today, but then I got word (via Twitter) of some really sad news. One of my fellow design bloggers passed away suddenly over the weekend. Marija Stephens, of the wonderful blog Holding Court, was such an encouragement to me via comments and email since I started my blog last fall. She was a wonderful designer (and blogger) with a beautiful family.
I looked back through some of the emails I had received from her and found it interesting that this was the last line of the last email she sent to me a few weeks ago:
"But you know, life is more than just pretty stuff (and I know from reading your blog that you totally agree). And quite frankly, the most beautiful things in any house are the people who live there and choose to visit :)
Have a great week :)
A great reminder for us all. . . .
Instead of commenting here, you can leave messages for her husband and children on this very sweet post written by her husband.
