Hard to believe it's been seven years... In some ways it feels like a lifetime ago, and in some ways it feels just like just yesterday. The sounds and smells still so fresh in mind. Our little Ellie (Eleanor Evans Spear) would have been seven years old yesterday. (You can read more about our story here). We think about her and what would have been all the time, but in this space seven years later, we are also able to remember and celebrate. The best way for us always seems to be giving back and making sure something positive comes out of our tragic experience.
I thought this week would be a good time to kick off our team and fundraising efforts for March for Babies, supporting the Maine Chapter of the March of Dimes. If you are local we'd love you to walk with us, if not maybe find a walk near your, or if you want to make a small donation in Ellie's memory we'd love it!

Today hug your kiddos tight (I know I will) and whether it's for the March of Dimes, or another great cause near and dear to your heart, do something to give back and pay it forward.
I'm Rebecca, a Maine mom of three energetic young boys and wife of a lobsterman, living in my favorite place, the coast of Maine. You'll find me here talking about my parenting journey, mom style, recipes, running and exercise, travel, stories from our life in Maine and so much more! Most days I'm just figuring it out as I go - Thanks so much for stopping by!
