One More Day Campaign | The Modern Fort | Cancer Awareness

Three years ago when I was scrolling my Instagram feed I read something that touched me. Something that made me think a littler hard and feel a little deeper. This something was the launch of The One More Day Campaign. The Modern Fort and Arrow House joined forces to raise awareness and money for those fighting cancer. That year I bought my first of my three OMD sweaters, knowing that the money I was spending was going to a cause that meant something to me.

When I attended their launch event last year and each of us went in a circle sharing who we were and what that campaign meant to us, I was touched. One stood out in particular of a girl who had lost her sister to cancer. I couldn’t imagine. I refrained from imagining. I felt heart broken for her as that would be harder then words can express.

Then the month before OMD launched this year we got news that my sister has cancer. It brought this all back. (see her update here)

But the thing is, my sister is not the only one who is battling cancer, there are so many people. Too many people. So thankfully, for people like The Modern Fort and Arrow House that step up, we can make a change. We can come together to support these people. This year they are specifically raising money in support of moms with cancer.

Partial proceeds from each pullover will be going back to surprise some deserving moms in our community. With goals to plan a retreat like feel for these woman to feel loved and blessed. They give so much of themselves to others (such as their families) before they give to themselves.

Another campaign objective to raise awareness for early detection – “seriously… check yourself,” says Joanna of The Modern Fort. They also aim to provide emotional support to moms currently battling the fight of their lives as well as create an inclusive environment for moms to support one another in a journey such as this.

  • A quick snap before we head out this morning, Sophie jumped in at the last second smiling with alllll her teeth 😍❤️ my shirt .. which is actually a bodysuit is @gentlefawn | hat @gigipip | shorts and cardigan @shophunnis | Hair curled with new wand from @conaircanada
  • May have gone a tad overboard on the swim gear a couple of days ago to get them excited for their swim lessons.

Goal: Can never be too prepared.

Reality: The whale floatie popped in our house the day I bought it, the morning of swim lessons was a rush to get ready, I regretted not findinng and organizing all their swimwear the night before, got breakfast through the drive through on the way over and somehow successfully completed day 1 of swim lessons. The kids were all smiles.... for the most part.
  • I was reading an article recently that said floral is the flavour of the year, thanks to the Royals serving a Lemon Elderflower wedding cake. Hopping right on that elderflower trend for this new recipe by experimenting with my new @sodastreamcanada FIZZI One Touch sparkling water maker.

Here's what I used: • @sodastream Sparkling Water that I created in seconds at home • Sparkling Elderflower
• Peaches
• Rosemary

Check out my latest blog post for the full recipe. 
Fun Tip: Turn any favourite sparkling water recipe by using half as much sparkling water and adding in your wine of choice (doesn't hurt to top it up with more berries either 😉 )

  • Picked up this wreath from @eucalyptuspopup today for a video shoot tomorrow (see my last post for what that’s about) and def think wreaths are perfect home decor all year round. What do you think?
  • A good night’s sleep makes a huge difference for how our kids behave throughout the day and how much energy they have to do the things they love!⠀

I’m super thankful for brands that strive to make our kids more comfortable and our job as parents easier.⠀

I’m a #GoodNites_Partner and working with them to teach parents about bed wetting, what causes it, solutions and to encourage all parents to know that these stages in childhood are normal.⠀
