It All Started When...

Our Story

It was a Tuesday night in Big Rapids, MI where Blake attended Ferris State University – in the final months of his MBA.  April 26th @ 8:45pm, he walked through the door to Buffalo Wild Wings where he worked.

Jen was sitting at the bar, drinking some cheap beer, eating some food, and of course watching the Blue Jays on the big screen. She travelled to Big Rapids once a month to work and this ended up being her favorite visit.

Blake was in, not to work, but to visit another bartender on shift.  He sat close to Jen and ordered dinner.  By the time he was done eating, he was sitting beside her and had joined in on the cheap beer.  We sat together for the rest of the evening, discussing our shared love of sports, but especially our local Tigers and Blue Jays MLB teams.

Jen was incredibly thankful to have met someone as she had been travelling alone for some time, a friend, companion, Blake fit.

Before we both left, Blake had suggested that Jen come back on that Thursday to watch the NFL draft with him and his co-workers. Jen, with no other plans on her business trip, was happy to accept! That one night at the bar, being in the right place at the right time for both of us, led to us exchanging numbers, Jen coming to the draft party, and eventually to more business trips and nights out, together, exploring the town and meeting new people.  We eventually had our first date in Detroit that summer – Tigers vs Jays at Comerica of course!

Over the next five and a half years, we traveled the world and took on as many adventures as possible. Our love of sports, music, friends, food, being outdoors, and trying new things has kept us always on the move, but we wouldn’t have it any other way. Cooper, our Goldendoodle, has been there for almost everything, and our new Shorthaired Pointer Ruger has been trying to catch up since he came into the picture last year.

Who would have thought that with hundreds of miles between us, living in two countries, navigating through a pandemic, that we would be engaged to marry in December of 2022!

We’re so excited to jump into the next chapter of our lives together and couldn’t be happier to share this adventure with you!!

Riviera Maya, Mexico

The Riviera Maya is a stretch of Caribbean coastline on Mexico’s northeastern Yucatán Peninsula. It’s known for its numerous all-inclusive resorts, such as those in the town of Playa del Carmen, and its long beaches. To the south, Tulum is home to yoga retreats and the preserved ruins of an ancient Mayan port city, perched on an outcrop above a white-sand beach.

Travel Details

It All Starts Here

Insurance Policy Details
It’s Important to ensure you’re covered in case of unexpected health issues or other covered reasons when booking this far in advance.
Manulife Global Travel Insurance offers a few options but we recommend the following:

The Premium Protection Plan covers up to 100% coverage for unforeseen and unexpected reasons, and up to 80% coverage for Cancel for Any Reason to a max. of $2,500 per person. During these uncertain times, we strongly recommend all travellers protect themselves with this policy if you are eligible.

Pandemic Plan (up to age 59): $28.64* per person As the government of Canada has lifted the avoid all travel advisory, most insurance policies will now again cover COVID-19 related events.  I recommend waiting to see what the situation is next year and shall this policy be required I will send an email out to those travelling recommending to add this policy on at the time of final payment.  As this policy does not cover you until your time of departure there is no point spending extra $$ on something that may not be required for your travels.
