For me??

For me??

There is great joy in looking back at my life and seeing how much better I’ve gotten at actually accepting the love I know I deserve.

And to honor that love because its reciprocated every. damn. day.

I never thought I //
Would stay in this state but now //
Here I am-happy //

It’s funny when I think back to all the hours I spent pining for the day I would leave michigan and then through the wild winds of self discovery, new opportunities developed and here I am still. While driving the back roads yesterday, I felt so happy to be here. Not the same here as I’ve always known, but here, close, within the state lines nonetheless. No one really knows what’s ahead but I can honestly say I’m ecstatic about what’s now. I feel lucky in that way. Humbled. Yet lucky.

I smell like campfire, my hairs have been cleansed with river water, my lips are chapped and I miss my kittehs but this place- does something to my heart. Finding my bliss with the ones I always miss is the best part of this life for me. Look for the ones that recharge your everything.  #innerworkingsofabeebrain

This must be the place!! #lovahspartycentral

WE GOTTA SURPRISE!

Lets start at the beginning!

On Wednesday, Jon and I went up to the Manistee National Forest to celebrate my 27th birthday. We spent the first night making a fire, drinking wine and having ourselves a good ol’ time within the bosom of ma nature! Thursday, we awoke, strolled on through the woods along a trail that takes you to a pretty private and secluded section of Lake Michigan ((our favorite)). We nibbled on fruit, overlooked the pristine bliss that encompasses our enchanting state and made our way back to the campsite in time for lunch.

Jon said he was going to get us some firewood and ice from the local campsite host* and would return momentarily. I started making us lunch- grilled sandwiches! My specialty! After a good 10 mins passed, then 15 then 25….I started to wonder where that crazy man had gone to. He soon returned stating there were monetary complications…something to do with needing change for the goods we were trying to obtain. Nevertheless, I thought nothing really of it and we begin eating our (now a little cold) grilled feast..We then packed our things to spend the rest of my birthday basking in the suns glory on the beach.

On our way back on the trail, Jon takes a quick left to head up to the Arrowhead trail ((which was basically a steep 60 degree incline lol…with three hula hoops and bags full of beach essentials….)), winded but thriving, we made it to what I thought at the time was the top. I laugh about his sudden urge to test the elements and he says “well you did it and here! I have something for you as a reward!”..We sit on a fallen tree, as he then reaches in his bag and turns to me with his headphones and iPhone. “I made a new song”…

I adjust the headphones to fit comfortably while simultaneously trying to calm the butterflies in my abdomen. I’m a sap tree by nature and the romantic in me was eating this moment up. Jon pushes play. This is what I heard.  ((pause here to listen to it..I’ll wait lol))….

Yup

At this moment, I was convinced he was about to have a ring or something. I mean, come on. That song! And he was being kind of weird lol but no. He just smiled and said “HAPPY BIRTHDAY! Let’s go to the beach!” And we got up, and started walking a little further up the incline. We reach a leveled edge and I see up ahead a handmade sign attached to two trees with rope and clothespins. I holler “Ah! Someone made a sign! That’s aweso-…” I stop when I start to realize the first half of the sign is a giant hand-painted bubble bee..In shock, I look to Jon who is now staring at me with this bashful excitement. “Is this real life?” I ask him..He asked “So?!? Will you?!?” …And the rest is the start of something big mixed with a bunch of sappy hugs and kisses. We spent the rest of the day, running around the beach and up to strangers exclaiming “WE”RE ENGAGED!” within the first five seconds of being in their company! We have two rolls worth of pictures taken by these strangers that should be back from the lab soon. I can’t wait to see how happy we looked!

Love is sweet.
We all love so many people throughout our lives at different times when we are in fact different forms of ourselves but for some reason, this love feels exactly how I’ve always hoped love could be-

Mutual. Honest. and hands down, the most fun.

Here is a picture of the sign:

And here is my treasure:

Jon had contacted my good friend, joe to make this ring who had made me my favorite ring (a different one) about a year ago. About four months ago, that favorite ring had gone missing and Jon had even spent a few evenings “helping me look for it”..lolol when in fact, he had taken it to use it for the size lolol that sneak!

Now we get to plan the best party of our lives!
<3

*We also came to the realization that the occupation of being a campground host in the National Forest is probably the best idea we’ve ever heard so we also know how we will spend our retirement! Yay for love and big dreams!

The best of days are around the corner! I cannot wait to get in that river!!!
