Living life just a little bit differently
It might not be the long weekend for everyone else, but CF and I are taking our long weekend this week as we try to spread out some of our days off in advance of our trip to the Okanagan coming up in August. It’s also CF’s birthday today, so we have lots of fun planned over the next three days. Happy Birthday CF!
Tonight is the first night in the Honda Celebration of Light – a free event on the waterfront of Vancouver. We’re splurging this time and going to see some Shakespeare at Bard on the Beach which includes some reserved seating for the fireworks. Should be a good time!

Thanks for the mention! Have a great weekend!
Thanks to you too!
I just took the skytrain from downtown and was wondering why the security was beefed up, lol. I think having a couple months worth of expenses saved in an emergency fund is prudent for most people. And more importantly, it’s the access to liquidity that is important, not so much the idea of emergency savings itself. I would recommend to most of my friends to have at least a small emergency fund. Thanks for the mention. And happy birthday to CF. I bet you got her something nice!
Liquidity is the key, you’re right. Like Jeremy says, I wouldn’t tie up $30,000 in an ‘Emergency’ fund. Just a few months or a couple thousand dollars is fine for most people.
Thanks for the mention Brian. I hope you had a good time at the fireworks and that CF had a good birthday. It’s looking like I probably won’t have a chance to make it out to any of the fireworks this year. It would be pretty cool to combine it with a Bard on the Beach night.
