In loving memory of Tori Hendrix

April 29, 2016

As we say farewell to another beautiful week here on planet earth, it is with the heaviest of hearts that we also say goodbye to an extraordinary woman, mother, friend, and creative member of our community. As many of you may know, Tori Hendrix has been battling a rare form of cancer for the past year. To say that we are devastated that her fight has come to an end is a wild and tragic understatement.

In loving memory of Tori Hendrix

Today we hope you join us in quietly honoring this beautiful person and the influence she has had on those who knew her personally and those who were touched by her presence as a creative, generous person in this industry and beyond. Her work as the founder of Sitting in a Tree has appeared on this blog so many times over the last seven years. And we know that many of you have found inspiration for some of the most special moments of your life in her unique spirit and style. There aren’t words to adequately express the loss that her family and friends and colleagues feel. Her gorgeous babies, her amazing husband Austin, her sister and parents. For all of them, we encourage you to learn how you can support Tori’s life and memory.

And to everyone, take a moment this weekend to appreciate this life, to hold those you love close, and to honor the spirit of this exceptional woman and the inspired life that she lived. For Tori.
