Meghan Block

Meghan Block
Meghan was born and raised on the South Shore and attended college in Boston. After college, she married her high school sweetheart and followed him to Charleston, SC and Groton, CT where he served as a submarine officer in the United States Navy. Military life was an adventure, and after 6 crazy years of service (and two babies later!), the pair decided to move *home* to the South Shore in 2016 and put down some roots. Meghan is a proud small business owner & work-at-home mom to William, Benjamin & Caroline, born in 2013, 2015 and 2019. She loves meeting new people, encouraging moms, celebrating motherhood, and supporting small businesses.

Boston Easter egg hunt - Boston Moms

Boston-Area Neighborhood Easter Egg Hunt

Boston-area families won't be able to attend our typical Easter egg hunts this year, but with a little help from our local communities, we can go on an Easter egg hunt while still practicing social distancing! Similar to the "bear hunts" and "chalk walks" we’ve seen happening in neighborhoods all over America, our egg hunt works best if lots of neighbors (young and old) participate.
