- Wedding anniversary weekend calls for the obligatory picture of me in my wedding dress. When else can I get away with this post? #whynot #happyanniversarytous # husband #wedding
For me, this picture from my wedding day really symbolizes my fight to help make lives better for those with Parkinsons. As a regional spokesperson for the Parkinson Society Central & Northern Ontario it’s been my mission to spread hope and awareness. And it all stems from the man you see in this shot. It has been three years since my Grandfather passed away from a valiant fight with the neurological disease. I say it came at us like a freight train. We had the rug pulled from beneath us after his diagnosis and continued to watch what was (for us) a fast deterioration. That doesn’t have to be your reality though. There is support with groups like the Parkinson Society. Reach out to your local chapter. Buy tulips this month when you see the volunteers at a busy hub near you. Check out great community events like the yearly Superwalk. I believe that more moments like the one in this picture can happen for the 100,000 Canadians living with Parkinsons. All while we never give up hope for a cure. This April is Parkinson Awareness month. Check out the Parkinson Society for more information, to donate to the cause or to get involved.
Have a peak at some of my favourite moments on The Weather Network this past year before my current maternity leave. Can’t wait to re-join the team later on this year.
These folks at Oh baby! Magazine were so much fun to work with. Here’s another piece I did with them a while back while working as a CityNews Reporter. Give this one on one a read if you have a chance, we talked about everything from pregnancy to potty training! It was important for me to express how we moms shouldn’t judge the choices each other make. Each baby and each parent is so different! What matters is getting through each day and giving ourselves a pat on the back! Thanks for reading! This snap is pre-baby! Oh baby, how rested I look!!!
Throw back time! Can’t believe this chat with Oh baby! Magazine was almost a year ago. Seemed fitting to post it now because it’s just as icy and cold outside this winter as it was last year when we welcomed in our little guy during the big Ontario ice storm! Read about the adventure here including how the hospital we delivered in lost power, during my labour! For real!
