On this night, my boyfriend proposed to me...
This was given to him as a Valentine’s Day gift. His reaction was just as priceless as mine when I turned around & he was on one knee. I honestly thought he’d propose at Christmas, but was a bit disappointed when he didn’t. We had already exchanged Happy New Years to each other & he said “oh by the way, there’s this. Will you marry me?” I cried instantly, but managed to get 'YES!' through the sobbing and tears lol.
It was one of the best starts of New Years Day ever.

I met my one and only 3 months prior to this moment, but it wasn't meant to be then, and that moment marks the exact moment when we found each other again and started talking.
After 3 months the right moment came, as I looked in her lovely, big, green emerald eyes; saw her smiling, we talked and talked and then we continued to talk on the phone and online, and just after 3 days I was telling myself that she can't be true - I am dreaming, she is way to perfect for me (also, she was thinking the same thing :)) )
I never felt anything like that before and oh boy, have I been searching for that feeling without knowing what it feels like - but I found it eventually, it was exhilarating.
I felt how my soul was being filled with love; with warmth; with extreme joy; with calmness - I felt like I was coming home after a very long time and I still feel this way, even to this day.
It takes just her voice to make everything better. I can't even begin to explain how after all this time, when she wakes up and looks at me, she has a little sparkle in her eyes and her face lights up my room - my day, my life, no matter how exhausted I feel or cranky.
Even when she sleeps and I am working, I like to stop now and then to look at her, to just look at her beauty; at how perfect she is to me and, even though she is lying there dreaming, I can still feel her love for me and I feel like the most lucky guy in the world.
When I'm with her it feels like winning the lottery every single day. Even when we have an argument here and there, we can't really stay mad at each other for too long.
I break down when I see her upset; I can't see an angel upset, she was my gift from the above, my other half - to upset her feels like stabbing myself in the heart and it hurts more than I can describe with mere words. We make up fast, cause just being there we can't help but hugging, kissing, making each other laugh.
Even from that day, that moment that all started on my birthday, FYI, that's why I call her my absolute gift or my gift from above, cause I had a hard life and it all turned 180 degrees on that moment - all my life had meaning, everything fell into place, there were no more struggles; no more sadness; no more bad stuff; just a never-ending fairy tale and it's all thanks to this perfectly beautiful, crazy, loving girl <3 .
So that's why I chose that moment, it was the moment that my life changed forever; it was the moment I became whole again; the moment I understood why it never worked before with anyone else: because they were making room in my life for my forever love. <3

This is the night I met my fiancé for the first time.
We had matched on tinder and started messaging back forth. Shortly after messaging I had asked her for her phone number and she gave it to me. So then, we switched from messaging on tinder to texting back and forth.
After texting for a few days I had asked her out on a date and she said yes. We had tried finding a day and time that worked for both of us and finally we chose December 16th.
On that day she borrowed her moms car and made the drive to Grunthal from Winnipeg (which is about 45 minutes to 1 hour) and met me at the hockey arena where we watched a hockey game, well, actually score-kept a hockey game.
During the game the ref was doing the worst job I’ve ever seen and after missing another call I threw my arms up in disgust (used my arms as a signal for “what the heck is that?!”) and when I did I accidentally hit my now fiancé in the face. I apologized a lot and she wasn’t mad at all.
At the end of the night I walked her to her car where I officially asked her to be my girlfriend, where she said yes. Ever since then our relationship has gotten better each day and as you know, the rest is history.
I love her and can’t wait to be married to her and it all started in Grunthal, December 16th.

That day my boyfriend and I were going to the seaside for the first time ever...
We met a couple weeks before but we started hanging out just some days before the 22nd of the month. At first we didn't know where to go but then he decided to take me to a spot where he is used to go during summer. We spent the whole day there talking about ourselves - we knew each other not so well at that time so I remember we talked a lot about our plans; our hobbies; our future; things we liked or dislike, etc. I got more and more interested in him as we talked.
At midday we had to go back home but we wanted to stay more. Just before leaving we kissed for the first time, it was so exciting and romantic and I will never forget how I felt in that moment.
Now we've been together for about 2 years and we always try to go back to that place and spend time together like we did that day.

I was in the Military, serving in Korea. Life over seas was crazy. I met a lot of great people over there. After spending 15 months in country, I was about to leave the Military and go back to civilian life.
Four or Five months before that I met an amazingly beautiful woman in a club, she was also in the US Army and was from the Northwest part of the USA. Now, I was in the typical state of a US Army Soldier in a club in Korea, and was a little intoxicated. But when I saw her, I went to her and told her I was going to marry her. Of course she laughed it off and chalked it up to me being drunk. But a month or two later we started dating. Knowing I was about to leave Korea and probably never see this beautiful girl again, I decided to ask her to marry me. It was not very elaborate but as I got down on one knee I started shaking, hoping that she would say yes. Her Roommate was in the room and she started crying because I had told her I was going to ask her.
On May 7, 1994 I asked her to marry me and she said yes. We were married on July 7, 2 months later. On July 7th in 2019 we will have been married for 25 years.

My best friend and I had met on Instagram in the summer of 2012...
We began to talk everyday and as we grew closer, we just knew we had to meet one day. Her only being in Syracuse, NY and I in Toronto, CA; there wasn’t much more than a few hours driving distance between us.
So on June 27th, 2014, she and her mom set out to Toronto to meet me, just 2 days before her birthday. I had never been so excited and scared at the same time, before.
When I finally received that message that she was in her hotel room and in a matter of hours, we’d be meeting for dinner. The nerves and excitement were racking up as we continued to text nonstop about how long we’d be waiting for this moment to arrive. At 6:52pm that evening is when it finally did. It is the exact moment our first picture of us hugging had been taken (thanks to our moms).
Meeting my best friend in real life for the first time felt like a movie scene, I just could not believe she was real and this moment was happening.
Flashing forward almost 5 years, we’ve seen each other countless times and even have a matching tattoo together. We’ve created so many memories and having this star map will show just how much that day meant to both of us.

I got married on the 21st of April 2018.
I wanted to have a memory of that day, as it was one of the happiest days of my life. I gave it to my husband as a gift on our first anniversary and now is hanging in our dining room.

So here’s mine and Jacob’s story...
This was our first date and I actually hated him at first because I had misread his personality, but my mom convinced me to go on this date.
This date ended up being one of the best dates I have ever been on and we ended up talking for 4 hours.
Fast forward to a year later, on that same date he proposes to me and we have been happily married since.
Everyone still jokes around about me hating him at first, to this day!

On the 5th of September, 2015 in Stockton, CA at 9:00pm is when my significant other and I sat and talked about our feelings for each other under the stars at Windmill Cove.
We talked for hours, opening up to each other about how long we’ve both liked each other but kept it a secret because we were afraid the other wouldn’t feel the same.
We’ve been together ever since!!
We’ve had lots of trials in our 3 years, 9 months, and 3 days but it’s nothing we couldn’t get through together.

This is the day where I kissed the love of my life the first time...
I started working as a waitress in a restaurant on the 19th of May, 2018 where he also worked as a waiter. He usually comes from south Africa and lives for two years in Germany. It's easier for him to talk in english, so he talks with me English and I answer him in German. The more often we worked together, the more we got to know each other.
We talked and laughed and became closer and closer.
But I was in a relationship and so was he. We both had bad problems and were unhappy in our relationship and we started being there for each other. After a short time I finally separated from my ex. I remember the day where I knew that I'd found the love of my life. But he didn't have it so easy coz he has a daughter who he didn't wanted to lose. We went through a really hard time. We wanted to be together but we couldn't. There were so many things that were against us being together.
So on the 8th of August he came to my house and we were sitting in the sun, talking and laughing and just enjoying the moment. And then all of a sudden, it was quiet and we were just looking into each other's eyes. And then he asked me, shy how he still was at that time, if he could kiss me. It was awkward and amazing at the same time. I will never forget that moment in my entire life!!❤
It took us two months to get officially together coz our boss actually didn't want us to have a relationship at work and of course there was still his daughter, who had to deal with her parents being separated. We went through bad fights with both our ex partners, sleepless nights, crying and a really hard time.
And now, almost a year after we kissed for the first time, I can proudly and happily say that everything was worth it! I was never as happy as I am now.❤
We spend as much time as we can together, we still work together in the same restaurant and we are a perfect work team, we are going to visit his family and friends in south Africa in September and his daughter has become part of my family too. He is my sun and stars and I'm his moon of his life. And as long as the sun and moon endure, I am his, and as long as the stars abandon the night, he is mine.❤
I gave him the under lucky star map as a gift, to show him how much he means to me and that there is nothing that can change that; that we make it through everything, together.
He cried when I gave it to him and it's now in our room, showing us everyday that in that moment the universe did something just to bring us together.❤
