There are moments in my life I will cherish forever but that afternoon in Wolverine, Michigan is extra special. It is a small village in the northern part of the state with a population of less than 500. There is really nothing fancy about the town – no signboards shouting for attention, no trace of Hollywood invasion, no non-sense – but the town has a park that lies along the side of the Sturgeon River and that sweet little haven is where my hubby decided to bring me for a surprise picnic. This place is naturally and effortlessly mystical. I have always been flawed and imperfect, but that day, that very moment, I was reminded that life is truly beautiful and wondered how will I be without him.

How did I fall for Jon? If you know him, you will know why. And by the Sturgeon River, I know, I have fallen deeper.
