Living it Blakey Style
We believe that the key to life is finding personal happiness, discovering a life partner to share experiences with, and developing the skills to adapt to life's ever-changing conditions.
We planned to start a lifestyle blog a couple of months before we hit the road to share our Canadian RV lifestyle story.
Just on the verge of full-time RV living in Canada and then it all changed.
We needed to replan as COVID-19 has thrown a bit of a fork in our life journey as it did to everyone else's in the whole wide world.
As part of our new plan, we wanted to help people improve their financial situations by sharing how we:
Worked our budget,
saved money and,
developed life skills.
So here it goes. We would love it if you joined us on our journey. Whatever that may be.
David and I started our journey together on July 22, 2008. Not really, it kind of started on the 20th.
I was looking for someone to go outdoor climbing with, and I was discussing it with Tara at work. Tara suggested I ask David.
I went down to the plant floor and found him on the phone, so I waited.
David, “ Can I help you?”
Me “yes, but it isn’t work-related, so I’ll wait.”
David on the phone for what felt like for freaking ever. David off the phone. “What can I do for you?”
Me “I was wondering if you would be up to go outdoor climbing sometime.”
David, “I can get a group together. How about Wednesday?”
Two days later and we were off with a nice little climbing group.
That was us, together forever.
A year later, I found out David was talking to Tara on the phone.
Tara, “Laurie is coming down to see if you will take her climbing. Don’t f--- it up.”
What a great night shared with amazing people. After the climb and rain, we made a curry in the parking lot. Then we visited most of the night at David’s. I must say work was a little ruff in the morning. Totally worth it.
