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!

It is the date of birth of MY PERSON, the one who calls to talk about everything, he was by my side through the good and the bad, the happy and the sad, and the rollercoaster ride of life.
He was my boyfriend since high school to college, he was my best friend through the time, the one who made my happiest days in my life.
He passed away in February this year in a horrible accident, I decide to make the map of his birth because I need to remember him, the meaning of being someone’s person, like a promise.
- You’re my person. And on that day you realize that no bond compares to the one we have, I will be your person when you come back. No matter how many years pass or the harsh words that are exchanged, you’re my person. I will welcome you back with open arms and a warm smile.
Friends come and go, but your person is supposed to stay by your side through thick and thin. Being someone’s person is not just something you say, it is something you promise. You promise to always support them, love them, and be their person until the end of time. Hold on to your person for as long as possible.
We’re friends, real friends. And that means, no matter how long it takes, when you finally do decide to look back in afterlife, I’ll still be here. I’m your person.-

May 23 ,2015. The day my husband and I got married.
The day we proved to everyone we beat the odds against us. We were young parents and struggled to finish high school. Then my mother-in-law was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer and she passed. Then I was diagnosed with an ovarian syndrome 3 months before our wedding.
I was pretty sure my husband wasn’t going to marry me at that point because I was now going to have difficulty having more children. And through everything, we got married on May 23, 2015.
On July 13, 2017, we found out we were having another baby after a long struggle and my due date was on my mother-in-laws birthday! We just celebrated our 4th anniversary this year and I saw this and ordered one because our stars really aligned in our lives.
When it arrived, I couldn't believe one of the constellations! It was two people holding hands. It truly is so beautiful and telling of our lives together. Through everything, we always stood by each other and now I get to tell this story every time someone asks ‘what is that picture?’ This has been the most meaningful gift I have given.

On April 23, 2019, I married the love of my life.
We met in 1996, and I knew then, at the ripe young age of 17 that she was the one for me. She was not so sure yet, and was too busy chasing girls. Life took it's course and we went our separate ways. All along, I told everyone I met that I knew that if there was one person I truly belonged with, it was her. I hurt many girlfriends' hearts by admitting that I would only ever be IN LOVE with her. She is now and has always been my person.
In 2015, we reconnected and she proposed to me on her birthday, November 24, 2016. Life's obstacles got in our way, and we again postponed our wedding.
This year was THE YEAR. We finally made it to Las Vegas, just the two of us. We searched for the best Elvis impersonator to marry us, and as planned, we got married on my grandparent's 64th wedding anniversary.
It was the best day of my live, hands down. I am so proud to be her wife. It only took us 23 years!

I chose to make a star map with this specific location and time for my Mom and Dad because that is the exact moment my little brother was born.
My Brother passed away suddenly on October 23rd, 2018 and that loss shook my whole world. I wanted my Mom and Dad to have a star map of what I call Nicky’s Stars, in that exact moment in that exact location my world changed for the better because my parents brought my little brother into this world and for that, I am forever grateful.
Below is a picture of my family, the one wearing the sunglasses is my dearly departed little Brother. My life is forever changed because of him. ❤️

Our wedding happened on this day at NG Kerk Weltevreden.
As my brother drove the car to the church, excitement is making me: Elrika, giddy with the knowledge that today is the start of forever and beyond. It is the day where you make the promise before God; your soulmate; family; and friends, that you will love and cherish each other.
My Dad helped me out of the car; kissed me on the forehead; told me he loved me; that I look beautiful; and will always be his princess - that was the best gift. And yeah, with all the excitement I slipped when we started walking down the aisle! Izak saw it and had started to rush up a few pews, but dad was quick to make sure I didn’t tumble and supported me for the last time.
Marrying your soulmate; best friend; lover; and support system, is the most wonderful thing you can ever do. The piece we picked for the priest was 1 Corinthians 13 to base our wedding on, as it is about LOVE and with that we have kept that alive in our marriage as well. Therefore, we included that as part of our constellation on the canvas. (Incl. a wedding photo.) Now on to how we met.
It was in June of 2002 at a social. I went to a dance school to learn Latin-American and Ballroom dancing more professionally. Izak, well he wanted to learn to dance for a wedding, as weddings do not only have Rave music. I was sitting with my friends, chatting away and, yeah, waiting for men to ask us to dance. Izak walked into the hall and caught my eye, and boy, did he leave me breathless and in awe.
He caught us ogling him whilst me and my friends were showing our moves on the dance floor. Well, needless to say because our group was lively, he decided to join us. I still don’t know how he got me to open up that night and shed my shyness. We danced, talked and even though I needed to go home, I was adamant to stay and talk with him. He had captivated me. To make sure that he was safe and not a danger to me, I went to the school’s administrator about him to make sure he could accompany me home. With only good things to say about him, I felt safe for him to take me home as I had a curfew while living with my parents. That night we were talking about everything even swapped out ghost stories and suddenly, at 02h00 in the morning, there was a light signal for him to go home. We both got very quiet and the next moment, we burst out laughing.
Then, yeah, I had to explain that it was my dad's way of telling me it was time for bed and my visitor should go home. (So to explain our home, it is build like in a u-shape and the living room has a big mirror on one wall, the opposite wall has a big window to the outside. I was sitting on the couch under the mirror and Izak was by the window. So on the other end of the u was an outside light for the courtyard. So my dad had switched the outside light on and off while we were in the midst of a ghost story.)
This was the start of an amazing friendship; dating; engagement; then our wedding and I believe there are many more years to come.

It all started in 2017, my mother had a stroke and was hospitalized. A few weeks later we learned that her heart was only pumping around 15% and would need a heart transplant. After several months of being hospitalized, she received the LVAD (left ventricular assist device) on February 27th 2017.
She had the LVAD for just over 2 years until March 5th she received a call from the hospital stating they had a donor. On March 6th at 9am my mom went in for heart transplant, at 1:30pm the heart surgeons came out and let us know that everything went well and was a successful transplant!

So a few weeks earlier, my son Owen and I were at the park when he met a new friend. They started to argue as 5 yr olds do and the other boy's father and I both said our kids names and started to laugh as his son was Rowen. The boys wanted to have more play dates.
After a few weeks of play dates for our 5 yr old boys and discovering they had the same due date - but were born about a month apart - and finding that we shared many common interests, he asked me on a date and he planned on our date being a truck bed full of blankets looking at the stars. But it was rainy that night so instead we drove around and ended up under a bridge in melrose watching the rain fall all around us.
Our conversations flowed effortlessly and a mouse ran out from under his feet and scared him; we still laugh about that! We had our first kiss there and now we go to that spot to go fishing with our boys and we sit on the same rock as we did that night; it has become our favorite spot to go for picnics; for fishing; or just to spend some time together.
I chose to get a map of what the stars would have looked like that night because even though we couldn't see the stars, they still lined up perfectly for us that night.

The reason for my star chart is the day my Grandson was born - his name was Phoenix Thanos Bulen.
He was born to two loving parents: my daughter and son in-law. He was only on this earth for a very short time. So when I think about him I like to look up to the stars and know he is looking down on us.
When I gave it to My daughter and her husband, it was on the anniversary of their son’s birth - it means the world to them that we keep his memories alive.
They hang it in the living room so everyone can see just how beautiful the stars were lined up the day they gave birth to an Angel.

My husband and I met on an internet dating site and talked via text or phone for a few weeks.
He asked me to finally meet him in person and he chose to drive an hour to my hometown. We finally met for the first time in person on April 25, 2013 at 6:30pm in Tuscaloosa, AL. He proposed to me in July 2014 and since it was for both of us a second marriage, I let him plan the wedding.
It was the best thing I could do for myself, I got to relax and sit back and enjoy being a bride. We were married in his hometown (at the beach where he grew up). I have since moved across the state line to where he lives and we have been happily married since September 2014.
The place where we met holds a dear place in our hearts though and we visit it as often as we can with our busy lives.
