Diabetes Blog Week: Day Three - Memories

Today's topic: Today we’re going to share our most memorable diabetes day. You can take this anywhere.... your or your loved one's diagnosis, a bad low, a bad high, a big success, any day that you’d like to share.

I am a photographer. I am a blogger. My memories are sometimes captured in words. Sometimes in pictures. Today, it's pictures. Pictures of me living life with my pump on my hip or pictures of me and my DOC friends. 

They are not in any particular order as you will notice from my ever-changing hair length. 

And I refuse to conform to the request to focus on just one memory. There are so many wonderful ones to chose from!

The day my friend Erin (hi Erin!) convinced me to take my glass of red wine for a walk down the street just to prove that Céline would indeed do something she was not supposed to do. 

The final stretch of the Niagara Falls half marathon last fall. 

The best race finish ever - wearing my Medtronic Global Heroes singlet with Doug at my side. 

Meeting the famous Scott and both of us in hysterics within minutes. Dude, you totally need to move to Canada so we can hang out more. It's warmer here by the way...

Jeff and Scully, two of my diabesties. 

Unhooking my pump before heading to the start line of the Guelph triathlon last September. 

The Run for the Grape half marathon. The second time I ran it back in 2009. 


On our cycling trip last summer. My pump is tucked in my back pocket for the ride. 

Just before we boarded the plane and enjoyed a tour of Niagara with Doug as our pilot. 

There is no pump in this picture but there is a man that I kinda have a big crush on. He's my type awesome and makes memories extra special. 

Oh, not much, just hanging out with Kerri and Scully

Waterproofed and ready to race. 

My life is rich in adventures and memory-making moments. Diabetes is the impetus for some of them, the cause of some of them and, for the rest, it just comes along for the ride. 


  1. I love that you put pictures up! Looks like a lot of good memories, hopefully with many more to come!


  2. This is fantastic! I love that you have met so many other bloggers, super cool! And the one with you and Doug just made me say awww. Awesome post!

  3. Love all these photos! I'm surprised we haven't met previously because I know basically everyone you know. LOL. Small world I guess?

  4. This is a great crowd to be part of. Thanks!

  5. Aw I love that you used photos for your memories and I love that you have diabesties-I want diabesties! Congrats on the triathlon and half marathons-I'm thinking about signing up for my first half-marathon in November and it scares me!
