The Lexingtonienne



Today Eleanora is one year, one month, and one day old.

EBD 13 months old

I am thinking of and praying for Olivia Anne Hellwig and her family more than ever today. Last September, Olivia was killed in a tragic accident as a careless, hurried driver sped through a crosswalk in reverse.

Olivia was one year, one month, and one day old.

Olivia is the niece of our dear friends Jen and Adrian, and you can read more about her in a beautifully and thoughtfully written post on Adrian’s blog, Dad or Alive.

Please say a prayer for Olivia and her family. Please hug your babies tight to you. And please, please, please exercise hyper-diligence at all times while driving. Look around. Slow down. No hurry is worth a sweet baby’s life.

    Eleanora is beautiful and you’re right, we all need to be conscious of our surroundings. SLOW DOWN, LOOK AROUND, there’s really no need to rush. Is it worth the cost of someone’s life?

    Love you Hannah.

    There’s something so very surreal about reading this–and especially perfect that Eleanora is one month, one week, and one day old today. Thank you for thinking of our family, I know Brooke and Brad, and all of us, really appreciate it. xx
