We are Yair and Ayo – a young, married couple in the middle of an exciting journey in lifestyle design. After a good deal of planning and saving, we quit our jobs at 24 years old and are taking the next few years to explore our interests and see the world.
Technically, we met in high school, but we never would have hit it off back then! (Different grades, very different social circles…) Instead we reunited and began dating at age nineteen when Yair friended Ayo on Facebook. Ah, a modern romance story. We’ve been together for seven years (!) and still maintain many of the Jewish cultural traditions and practices with which we were raised. For more background information about us, check out the FAQ.
About the Blog
We started Our Take on Freedom two and a half years ago to document our journey, explain how we got where we are and show like-minded people that they can do the same. We hope that this blog inspires and encourages you to do the things you want to be doing.
We also use this blog as a space for keeping the world in the loop on what we’re up to and what’s next for us. In sum, it’s part journal, part inspiration, part thought-mash, and part advice. Feel free to check out recent posts, or start reading from the beginning. Take away whatever feels good to you. Our goal is that you enjoy the blog and get something great out of it.
