In 2014, I tragically lost my hubby and the father of my kids, in a car accident.

The kids were 1 year old and 2 months old. I spent the next almost 4 years trying to piece my puzzle back together. On October 19, 2017, I met a man who would change my world and the world of my children! He will forever be my gift sent from above.

I chose the Under Lucky Stars as a gift to make him see how incredibly unique and special he is.

The night of April 10th, 2014 - I remember every single thing from this night.

The way the wind blew, the weather, what I had been wearing, how I felt, my nervousness level, I remember everything.
Meeting her, walking together through campus, the first time seeing her eyes, holding her hand. It was the first night I had ever met and laid eyes on the love of my life. We walked around campus, I let her wear my hoodie (that she still has) because we had been walking around outside for a lot longer than we both expected. Walking around for a couple of hours talking, laughing, getting to finally know each other and spending time with each other.
The happiest I had been in a very long time, this night. The night I met the love of my life, this night. The night that I fell head over heels with her, this night. I love the stars and the sky, and this night is special to me because during that night, I remember looking up at the stars and knowing that this exact time and date is when my entire life changed, the night that I had met the love of my life for the very first time.

I gave this to her as a gift to prove to her that the little things matter, that I remember the date we met for the first time, the day she turned my life around, the day I fell in love with her.

The story of 6:08 pm on July 12th, 2016 at Harris Methodist Medical Center is that my son was born that time during an emergency C-Section after my wife was in labor for almost 72 hours.

We had my son at that hospital due to him have a Congenital Heart Disease (CHD) called Hypo-Plastic Left Heart Syndrome. In layman terms, my son was born without the left side of his heart. As less the 24 hours old he underwent his first in a series of three open heart surgeries. He spent after that surgery 2 days with his chest open where my wife and I could see his heart pumping inside of his chest through a little screen tape on his chest.
From there he spent 47 days on the ventilator. During the first surgery, his diaphragm had been paralyzed. My wife and I prayed for countless hours over our son. God answered our prayers and the day that the doctors were going to permanently deflate his diaphragm, and this would cause a trachea to be placed. They did an echo on his chest and saw movement in his diaphragm and he was able to be removed from the ventilator and we were home 2 weeks later.
He had his second surgery at 3 and a half months old. We are now about to celebrate his third birthday and also are preparing for his 3rd and hopefully final surgery. This surgery will be mid to late August of 2019.
The God of this universe that created those stars that were shining down on us that day I never want to lose sight of.

The amazing picture received was in perfect condition and made my wife burst into tears.

My fiance had planned a weekend getaway with his best friend and his wife. Us two couples were planning a relaxing spa weekend after he got back from hunting and it was going to absolutely amazing!

We planned trips to the hot springs, vapor caves, hiking, shopping, everything! He had a list of things to pack and I didn't question a thing! We set out with out friends and went to start our extended weekend with a lovely hike up to hanging lake trail.

Once we reached the summit, he pulled me aside to hike up to spotting rock, a little waterfall, and once tucked away from the crowds of the busy trail, asked me to marry him. He had my beautiful ring and the most handsome smile on his face.
The best day of my life!

5 months prior to this special moment, a small group of friends and I took our annual guys trip to Whistler.
While there, a buddy of mine had met a girl, we drank and had fun, they exchanged numbers only to not talk again for another 4 months.

Flash forward, my buddy gets a text from his friend from Whistler, she tells him she is coming to our (near by) town to see a concert, he excitedly said yes but didn't want to go alone. Being the best friend, he asks me to go with him to the concert, only later to find out that it's a Post Malone concert and that I have no interest in spending a crazy amount of money for floor seats for us to be with her and her friends at a concert I don't want to go to in the first place, but I did it anyway.
The date was April 29th, 2018. We we're on the floor in front of the stage. Well I was, my buddy was sucking face with this girl somewhere and I was having a decent time, standing there listening to music, pounding beers to past the time. I like to think I am pretty outgoing, especially when I have been drinking so I start conversations with the girl beside me. We started talking about how people were pushing their way to the front even though there was no room to begin with. All the sudden here she comes. Walking up with a beer starting to talk to the girl I was having a conversation with.
I was star struck, I never really knew the type that all my friends said I go for, but man did she hit every box. I was trying to play it cool, and I was out of beer, so I left for a refill. As I am coming back the main event is starting and the people that were hanging in the back of the floor we're suddenly rushing to the stage. There was no way I was getting back to her. But finally I did. We hung out the whole concert having fun. Last song comes and the crowd dispersed. She was nowhere to be found. I find my buddy and we are walking out of the venue with my head held low because I didn't get her number.
We call an Uber and walk to the front. I see her standing up against the wall and my face lights up like the street light she is standing almost perfectly under. We talk for a second and get a call from the Uber driver, he's here, just when I was about to ask her for her phone number, her friend says "Well, I guess see you never?"
It's my shot, I take it and ask for her Snapchat, which I felt totally weird saying as I would normally say number, but I guess the beers got the best of me. Haha. Much to my surprise they said yes. A couple hours and a few more beers later I shoot my shot and ask her out. She said yes.

1 year later we are moved in and starting the next chapter of our lives together.

My wife and I actually met in 2001, when I was 11 and she was 10; We went to the same Church. We went our ways in our teen years and fast-forwarding to 2010, leads us to the evening I fell in love so madly and deeply.

October 27th, 2010: I was with my mother and we were chatting about whatever when she happens to mention my wife. She told me that Chelsie was in the hospital with cervical cancer. You see, I’ve lost a lot of people to cancer in my lifetime and when she told me, I had the greatest amount of empathy and concern for her. I decided to gather up some flowers and go visit her; but upon arriving, the hospital said there was no record of her being there. Later that night, I [finally] signed up for Facebook and searched for her - we ended chatting for a bit and she told me that she had herself un-listed in the hospital patient-directory, for personal reasons.

We decided to meet up the next day.
October 28th, 2010: So, this date I chose for our picture, not only was it our first date, it was the first time I met my son. We spent a few hours together and I drove them up 8th Street to a pullout along the road that lets you view all of our city and the mountain ranges in the background. As we watched the sun set, I found myself watching her more than anything. My heart raced like I had never even talked to a girl before...

That’s my story of October 28th, 2010. It’s the day I realized who my soulmate was, after all those years. The day I fell in love with my son. The day I saw that I really did have a future ahead of me; one with her.

We’ve been married for 8 years now and have three beautiful children. I couldn’t ask for more out of life. Chelsie has taught me so much, but most of all, she taught me that I can be loved. Loved in a way that I didn’t even know was possible.
Thank you for reading :)

On October 30, 2018 at 1:45am my beloved Jake Ryan Gregg climbed the stairway to Dog Heaven. The chart was the route he took on his journey.

Upon his arrival in Dog Heaven, he was asked to serve as the liaison between earth and Dog Heaven - and so he created a Twitter account (@dogheaventweets). He also got thumbs; the wi-fi can be spotty though. Jake Ryan helps pet parents by letting them know their dog has made it to Dog Heaven and that they are okay. He shares details about the awesome features of Dog Heaven (guacamole isn't extra, free belly rubs on Thursdays). Back on earth, I have begun to realize the importance of following your passion - which is helping others who are navigating difficult times.

I made a star chart because when he passed was the moment I want to carry with me always. I want to remember how much I love him and how we must use these moments to help others through the most difficult times. Pet loss can be a lonely, dark place - but the grieving need to know they're not alone.

I understand your product captures beautiful moments in life - when we fall in love or have babies, but for me, the most significant moment was when my precious dog went to Dog Heaven and we both began a journey to make the world a better place.

This day, time and location is where I met my wife for the first time.

At the time I worked for a large nutraceuticals company and The Vitamin Shoppe was not only one of my favorite places to shop for my health and wellness products, but it was also one of my company’s largest customers.
I needed to pick up a few things before leaving for The Vitamin Shoppe PEC (Product Education Confrence), so I headed over to The Vitamin Shoppe across from the Arden Fair Mall. I parked in front of her store (five minutes before it opened).
I spent about an hour and a half in her store shopping and speaking with her and I had more butterflies in my stomach than I had ever felt before and I had no idea what to do with that feeling. After saying our goodbyes (knowing that we’d possibly be seeing each other in Florida), I got back into my car, and I called my company’s representative who managed her region and asked why he never told me about her; I immediately followed my question with the statement, “I am going to marry her.”

For the cut and dry, on September 5th of the same year we became husband and wife, and almost 7 and a half years later we have two daughters, a 3 and a half-year-old and a 5-month-old.

I am so in love with my wife and family, and I’m more than grateful for the opportunities, relationship, and people that put us both there that day.

Hello, my name is Ariana R. I am 23 years old and this is my star map story.

On the night of December 15th, 2019 at 9:00pm I was on a retreat in Sedona with my choir group from college.
We had an exciting afternoon and a group of us decided to end the day at the "tranquility pool". Only intending to stay in the hot tub, I found myself jumping into the large pool and floating on the surface while stargazing and all of a sudden, nothing else mattered but me and the stars.

I have to tell you; this is not one of your love stories. I wanted you to hear it because your star maps can represent any significant moment in someone's life.
It wasn't a major life event but it was something that changed me. I was grieving at the time... I had just lost my older brother in September. It is the hardest thing I've had to live through so far, but, floating in that pool... forfeiting my destiny to the stars, was the first time since losing my brother that I felt hope and inner peace.
For the first time in what felt like forever, I felt awake. I'm not sure if it was the healing powers of Sedona or just the relaxation of feeling weightless when the whole world is on my shoulders, but that was a pivotal moment that I never wanted myself to forget.
It taught me that through your darkest times is when hope can shine the brightest.

My star map is on the wall in my bedroom. It's the first thing I see every morning and the last thing I see at night as a pledge to myself that I can accept my fate because it is already written. Thank you Under Lucky Stars!

Well, the most beautiful thing happened on October 27th 1985 at 12:30 am, my wife, the love of my life was born!

She has been the foundation our family was built on. I have never met another woman that can hold the world on her back like Atlas and do it with grace and class. She is the ultimate symbol of perfection, style, and beauty! She followed my military career around the world and never complained, she gave birth to 5 of my children and is raising them to be strong independent individuals.
She never misses a moment in any of our lives and balances our family wonderfully. She is so very underappreciated and doesn't get told how very important she is to us enough. I honestly wouldn't be where I am today without her. So, in short, that's why October 27th, 1985 12:30 am is such an important day.

It was literally the exact moment the universe gave me my soulmate.
