Gwen, a director of television commercials, has mapped out her life in an attempt to be in control. That plan was devised as she never wants to be thrown for a curve like she was when she was thirteen when her father unexpectedly died. That plan includes being engaged by the time she reaches thirty, which is just around the corner. That engagement and imminent marriage will be followed by moving to Los Angeles to further her career. Alex, an image conscious on-air weatherman and Gwen's boyfriend of three years, knows of Gwen's plans, he who seemingly factors perfectly into those plans. When what Gwen envisioned will be the perfect romantic proposal from Alex not only does not materialize on her thirtieth birthday, but that a proposal from him doesn't happen in any form at all on that day, Gwen makes an off the cuff secret birthday wish to be able to see ten years into her future. Gwen does end up seeing a vision of what she assumes is supposed to be her in ten years, that vision which... Written by Huggo

The word 'Milsean' means sweets (candy) in Irish gaelic. So the Milsean Shoppe over which Gwen lives, translates to ' Sweet / Candy Shop'. See more »


The resort scene has Dave and Gwen roasting marshmallows. There's three stone benches around a firepit. Two benches had pads, the third one did not. An older couple sits down next to Dave and Gwen. They roast marshmallows and talk. Gwen leaves to join Alex in the hotel lobby. The camera pulls back and shows Dave sitting alone with two empty benches. The older couple was gone from the scene. A few minutes later, it again shows the same scene of Dave sitting alone. The same empty benches, one with a pad, and one without were visible. Gwen returns outdoors to the firepit looking for Dave. Dave is gone, and the older couple is sitting there. It's made to look like the couple never left, yet they were missing from the previous scenes with Dave. See more »

I am a Hallmark Regular! 8 stars for me, I loved it!
21 March 2017 | by huggibearSee all my reviews

The part of this movie I loved, was her ability to see into her future. I feel like this movie took something from my very own thoughts as I also see into my future, who I'm with and what I'm doing (with what I've accomplished). It's never been about the typical American Dream with an awesome immediate family, happiness, nice home, nice car(s), plenty of abundance (money, food, joy), exemplary kids, which most women and some men dream of today, just like back then. Most of us want a similar dream. But it's not about our dreams coming true, rather than our own selves accomplishing the spectacular things we desire from the ability to see into the future of our desire. As one who focuses on my desires and maintains my vision, staying in control of it moment by moment, I will be right there with this film actresses' vision of the future, not what she wants, but what I want based on my priorities. She was not sure of what she was initially seeing as her accomplishment, the husband and the children, until it hit her that what she was seeing was actually unfolding right in front of her. So that's what I'm still waiting upon, for what I see in my current vision through my focused control may not have enough detail to hit me about how and when I see myself being able to pull it off. But with my guides, I can make anything happen. Without them, my vision is not even possible to achieve. The movie was great because of her ability to see into her future and maintain that vision for as long as it was necessary to understand the details and put it all together. Although this is not my favorite Hallmark movie of all time, I ranked it higher due to the concept of visions. We need to have them.
