Most of all, I remember...Jon proposed to me in Lake Como, Italy! He took me to Northern Italy because my family is from there. We started in Milan, Italy, and our plan was to work our way further north to Switzerland. But just four days into our trip we were in Lake Como, Italy, and Jon had reserved a private antique wooden boat for us to take around the Lake. We had a personal driver who only spoke Italian and a wonderful spread of cheeses, salami and Prosecco. The driver took us in front of the most amazing lush estate I have ever seen called "Villa Balbianello." It is absolutely gorgeous.
Jon knew that was where he should propose so he had the driver take us around the lake for a few more laps and then we came back to this beautiful Villa where he proposed on one knee! Later that evening he had a back-up plan in place just in case "Plan A" didn't work out. So we had a private dinner, poolside, looking at the hillside of Lake Como with our very own saxophonist. I was on Cloud 9; he really made me feel like a Gem!
