I started dating Courtney in July of 2016.

In October of 2018, I proposed to her and she said yes. Courtney is an avid stargazer and we have taken many trips to dark deserted fields to watch shooting stars and just gaze up at their beauty. When I was looking for a wedding gift for her, I happened to see an ad for this star map that allows you to pick the time and place and have it accurately represent the stars in the sky. I knew this was what I wanted. As I was shopping I noticed y'all also had phone cases. I made a phone case at the time of our engagement and ordered the wall-hanging to be my wedding gift to her. I asked her to open the gift just before we met on our wedding day, and her tears said it all!
Thank you so much for being apart of our special story!

This was my first kiss with the love of my life.

It was our first date. We had been talking over the phone and texts for a couple weeks before this first date. We planned 3 parts of the date: go to lunch, go see Star Wars, and then she wanted to go to this popular Christmas lights show at Mozart’s in Austin.

So, effectively, our first date lasted pretty much all day because the Mozart’s part was at night under Christmas lights. It was the best first date I’ve ever been on.

The Under Lucky Stars poster part comes in when we were at Mozart’s. That’s where we shared our first kiss. I had never been, but I’d heard of this place before.

We walked up and you could hear the music playing and see the lights from a block away. It was the PERFECT place for a first kiss. I was really nervous though going into it because I didn’t want to seem too forward with wanting to kiss her on our first date, but I was having such a good time and the vibes were so good that I wanted to, really bad! We had already broken down some physical barriers to this point like holding hands and she was cool with me putting my arm around her and stuff, so that made it less nerve-racking.

We finally found a spot to sit down after walking around and waiting for a while because it was so crowded and busy there. I remember sitting there next to her, holding her hand, listening to both Christmas music and non-Christmas music alike...seeing her beautiful smile under the Christmas lights and making her laugh (I love her laugh) and I knew she was someone special. I also caught myself, multiple times, getting lost in the most gorgeous light brown eyes I’ve ever seen.

But I knew that if I didn’t go for it, I would probably regret it. So, there was a moment while listening to the music under all those Christmas lights at around 7 pm that evening where she happened to look up at me and gave me the most innocent, happy look and I knew that was the moment - so I leaned in and kissed her.
It was one of the most magical feelings I’ve ever felt in my life.

I will forever hold that day as a special treasure in my heart.

At this place and at that time me and my girlfriend became official after a couple months of dating. But it isn't the most usual story, let me tell you.

I had a girlfriend, we were about 7 months together but we always fought, yelled at each other and never really had fun. But, the loyal person that I am, I will never ever cheat on my girlfriend.

One day, a mate of mine told me he was going to a house party, he invited his girlfriend and she said she would bring somebody with her as well. We were sitting at this party when my mates girlfriend and another girl walked into the room, I immediately saw the girl my mates girlfriend brought. Long, really curly hair, a really cute face and an honest smile. During the night we started talking about my life and my girlfriend and I. I told her that I was happy and that everything was perfect just the way it was.

A couple of moths later my and I girlfriend broke up, I was really upset, although we always fought and yelled at each other. I told my mate that me and my girlfriend broke up, he told me that I had to go on with my life and make the best of it and just had to see new people, so he arranged a double date!! He told his girlfriend that I was single again, she immediately told the girl she brought to the party and you will never believe what she said. She said that she fell in love the moment she saw me at the house party and that she always thought of me during the months we hadn't spoken. On April 16, we had the double date, I live in the Netherlands so we had to go to Amsterdam. We spent a full day there and had a meal in Egmond aan Zee, at a restaurant that's literally on the beach. After we had dinner we took a walk on the beach.

After this double date we had many other dates and in every date I just knew it was fate that had brought us together. It was written in the stars!

This start chart is the way the stars looked the night my boyfriend and I met.

He was working, and I was buying some dog food for my coworker’s secret Santa present, and I bumped into him. Immediately, I looked up at him and my jaw dropped. It was love at first sight for me, and this was such a special and life changing night for the both of us.

Stars are special for us because I saw my very first shooting star while I was with him on our first date, so it was only fitting to get him a star chart of the night we met.

Staten Island, NY, USA on the 9th of January, 2019, at 4:25am

On January 9th, 1999, my mother gave birth after several hours of induced labor. I was over a week late and born with a full head of hair. From the very beginning, my grandmother was there to love and care for me.

We lived in my mother's childhood home with my grandparents. My grandmother worked double duty as my on-call baby sitter. She kept a pocket calendar for over thirty years, making several entries about our days together whether it was at home or out at the park. I always felt truly loved and adored by my grandmother - she was in every regard my second mom.
That strong connection continued to grow and develop over the years. She trusted me with many things and was certain that whatever she did for me and my family would not go unappreciated. She took us on our first trip to Walt Disney World which sparked a joy in me to the point that I now work for The Walt Disney Company; she took me to my first Broadway show which opened my eyes to musical theater - I now work at The Lion King on Broadway; and she was always one to give my sister and I money when we would leave the house just to spoil us a bit. All the good things she brought us would come full circle in her time of need.

After more than 8 months away from home, I had finally returned in the summer of 2018 from my travels across the country and across the world. My grandmother had been diagnosed with pneumonia and we thought nothing of it - within a month the diagnosis had been changed to stage four lung cancer. Immediately we began treatment. Shortly into her treatment, fluid was found around her heart and she had to undergo open heart surgery - my once strong grandmother, who would regularly walk my dog for miles, could now barely stand, let alone speak.

We watched her suffer as she began to realize that everything we were doing to fight this cancer was too little, too late; something we never felt was true until January 8th, 2019 when we made the call to 911.

My grandmother's eyes were the clearest they've ever been; she was happy to have reached the end of her journey, but we were terrified to think of a life without her. I spent the day gathering as much family as I could at the hospital - we managed to get close to all of our immediate family, which is over 40 people, including family friends and my dog.

After everyone had come and went, it was just my mom, dad, grandpa, his sister and myself in the room with her. We took our turns staying yet another final goodbye, but it wasn't until my grandfather sat with her that she was ready to go. At 8:49 AM I was born, and halfway to that at 4:25 AM on my 20th birthday, I lost my grandmother to the stars.

In just a short five months my grandmother went from being healthy as a horse to my guardian angel, which she will be forever. I long for the day's I will be able to see my dancing queen again, but until then we will forever honor her memory by spreading the love that she so graciously gave to those around her - she is remembered by all for her generosity and love.

That night, at Disneyland, was the first time my mom and dad met.
They didn’t go to see each other, she said she and friends were just there and saw some guys, who started following and talking to them. She told me there was just a connection and they actually took a picture together that night. They met up again a few weeks later and started dating. And in July of 1973, they were married. Had a total of 4 kids and 4 grandkids through 45 years of marriage.

My dad passed away in October 2018, 5 days before his 66th birthday. So this was a gift for my mom, for the night they first met. The top caption for the map is “The night our hearts met”. She loved it and keeps it in her room near her bedside.

My dad served 20 years in the US Navy and was deployed during the first Gulf War. Retired in ‘93 and was working for the Army Recruitment Headquarters in Honolulu as a computer tech. They honored him by having a memorial service for him aboard the U.S.S. Missouri docked in Pearl Harbor.

Below is the picture of the night they first met.

Dave & I met as kids at church camp attendees as we lived in the same area of the state. Then we met again as a freshman in college when a friend of his introduced us. We smiled and shared pleasantries but that was about it.

Then life happened - he went one direction and I went another and our society became more technology driven. On May 29, 2016 - 30 years later - while reviewing various posts on Facebook, I got notification of "someone you may know" and I realized it was Dave. So I "friended" him on Facebook & then sent him a private message asking if he and his family would like to get together for dinner at some point and catch up on the last 30 years. He responded and said he wasn't married but had a daughter and grandchildren. He told me he was currently working out of the country until October but would enjoy having dinner when he returned. We spent the next 5 months communicating daily through emails, texts, facebook messenger and snail mail. When he came home in October - we went out for dinner & the rest is history!

I chose to make our star chart of that 1st Facebook communication because that one message opened up the door to what has become a most wonderful friendship and life adventure filled with laughter and love! That one moment in time with that one choice to make contact has made all the difference in the world for us!
