The Ronald McDonald house

I don't have time to do this properly, so this will be a brief intro, and I will fill in the blanks tonight.

When Thing One was born, she arrived (or tried to) way too early. Like, 7 weeks early.

Stubborn as I am, I crossed my legs and refused to give birth until she was the appropriate age.
(I jest.)

She ended up being 6 weeks premature, and spent 9 days in the NICU, a wonderful place for a preemie to be.

During that 9 days, we were invited to stay at the Ronald McDonald House in Bangor. This was a godsend, as we lived here on the island at the time, and would have been 2 hours and a boat ride away (in February, no less).

Also, it must be said, it was fortuitous for all involved that we were invited to stay, because I was not leaving the hospital with my daughter in it. The End.
I'm sure every parent feels the same.

In an effort to give back to the awesome organization who helped us stay together during that scary time,

The Frenchboro Bakery will donate 30% of all items sold this weekend, August 8th and 9th, to The Ronald McDonald House.
Items at all locations, including the Online Store, wholesale locations, and the Offshore Store (where we will have a table set up) will be included.

Thanks 'Ronald'!
