To be able to show my two grandkids and my kids again where it all started for grandma and mom - Michigan - is more than I can describe. It was so precious and meant so much to me. It’s not about things but moments and places I get to have and share with those that will always have my heart. To have Chris here and show him this place I love and he liked it too meant a lot to me and made me so happy as well. I’ll be back and I’ll be back with them. Michigan your view never gets old. #puremichigan #mackinacisland #journeyofamyrandchrism #amyssecondactcontinues #greatlakes #nosaltnosharksnoworries #myhomestate
