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. ❤️

Fort Wayne, IN, USA on the 10th of April, 2014, at 8:00pm


A story by Matthew W at Fort Wayne, IN, USA on the 10th of April, 2014, at 8:00pm

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.

I was 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.

A story by Robert D at San Antonio, TX 78258, USA on the 11th of January, 2013, at 10:00am

At about 1am I was woken up by my wife then 26 weeks pregnant with our first child.

She had been having trouble sleeping for the past few nights but this time she said we needed to go to the ER because something was not right. After going to the maternity ward of the hospital and what felt like hours and hours of tests the doctor came into the room and said that my wife was suffering from something called HELLP Syndrome and both her liver and kidneys were shutting down. The only cure to this is for an emergency delivery 3 months early. We were rushed to another hospital across town because the one we were at did not take babies that small.

At around 10am on January 11th Conrad Danger Duncan was brought into this world via emergency C-section. Weighing in at a whopping 2lbs 2oz and a lanky 13 inches. After fighting in the NICU for 85 days, he was finally able to come home where he has blossomed into and very smart, very strong, tender-hearted little boy.

A story by Antonina M at 900 W Avon Rd, Rochester Hills, MI 48307, USA on the 25th of May, 2018, at 7:00pm

My "Under Lucky Stars" moment hasn't happened yet, but I'm ecstatic for the moment to come.

My fiance and I met 5/11/15 in a summer class at Oakland University. Once I got into class I had this strange feeling. I knew either I was going to meet my love or stay single forever. It made sense in the moment and I felt oddly calm about my internal and perhaps melodramatic premonition. Sure enough, class began and there was no one in sight that sparked my interest, but then the classroom door opened and in came a man who was just my type. My first thought was "Wow. There he is." I felt elated and couldn't stop smirking at him.

Of course from his perspective, he was hesitant to even take the class and once he was late he was even more hesitant to enter the classroom but the professor saw him and beckoned him into the room. Then once he came in he saw me, this "cute, smirking girl" and wondered what the heck my problem was.

We were put into a group together which started us talking and the ritual of him walking me partway to my next class. One day he asked me out and the rest is history. We decided 5/11/15 was our anniversary because we felt like we became a couple the day we met. One year from the day we met he proposed, getting down on one knee on a candlelit bridge. It was the same bridge we stopped on on our first date where he almost kissed me for the first time, but didn't, because he didn't want the date to end. Later on I teased him that that bridge was a missed opportunity so he fixed that when he proposed!

Now, after another (almost) two years of school, job changes, house hunting, wedding planning, acclimating to one another's families and friends, and an assortment of other challenges and fun, we are less than four months away from saying "I do!"

In short, 5/25/18 at 7 pm is when I and my fiance will officially be husband and wife. Our ceremony will end and our first married kiss will be the affection that takes us into our married life. He is my soul mate and best friend. I love him more with every up and down of life and I chose a future date because he is my future.

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.

Thank you.

A story by Leigh P at Tuscaloosa, AL, USA on the 25th of April, 2013, at 6:30pm

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.

444 Central Ave, Rochester, NY 14605, USA on the 14th of June, 2014, at 11:00pm


Back in May of 2014 I had finally gotten away from an abusive ex, I had dealt with such pain for 3 years and I was finally free - it was all so new and scary, being free and alone with my children. All I did was work and come home.

During this time I received a friend request on Facebook, my heart dropped to my stomach when I saw who it was: my high school crush Derek, who was also my ex from like 10 years ago. We had a rough breakup but, then again, we were so young.

The next morning I woke up and the friend request was gone; I'm not going to lie, I was a bit sad, but I ignored it and went about my day. The next day the friend request popped up again and this time I did not hesitate and accepted it. He messaged me and we talked for a little bit, talking about life and how we both have been.
A week had gone by and I hadn't heard from him. I was going through the emotions of a break up and trying to feel normal after getting out of such a horrible relationship.

I was posting song lyrics on Facebook that matched how I was feeling and Derek messaged me, guessing the songs' name - he asked me what was wrong, so we began talking. Then the next day we were talking, and again, until we were texting; calling; and sending cute pictures to each other - it felt like high school all over again.
So later that weekend my girlfriend called me and wanted to go to a club called Tilt, I figured 'why not?' it had been so long since I had been out. I texted Derek and told him my plans to go out with my friend, he sounded excited for me and told me to have fun.

The night of June 14th 2014 I was getting ready to to go out - I was so nervous I hadn't been out in a couple years - my previous relationship with my abusive ex never allowed it. I was so scared, I was having an anxiety attack. I avoided calling my friend til the last minute. She was supposed to just come pick me up but it was now 10:30 pm and no sign of her. So I finally called her to find out what was going on. She thought I wasn't coming cause I didn't call, so she had left her apartment and was already on her way to the club. I got off the phone and sat down next to my children in the living room. My oldest said "what are you doing? Aren't you leaving?" I replied "no, I missed my ride, I didn't really have enough gas to get there anyway".
A part of me was relieved because the thought of being around so many people was scary. So I called Derek and told him what happened, the line went silent..."what's wrong? Are you still there?" I asked. He answered, "yes! - But you have to come to Tilt tonight!", "Why?" I said, he responded "cause I'm here!". I was so shocked and confused. "What do you mean?" I asked, "I was trying to surprise you and meet u here!".
He offered to give me gas money so I could go, so I drove out to the city got to the club and as I walked through the doors and up the stairs: there he was, he was leaning up against the wall waiting for me. He looked up and smiled at me and all I could do was smile back; 'love at first sight' is an understatement for what I felt in that moment and I knew he felt it too.
I was walking on air all night, it had been 10 years since we had seen each other and even though he couldn't see it, my heart was beating a mile a minute, I was so captured by him. We danced all night, had a few drinks - it was so much fun, I hadn't felt like that in years! I don't remember who kissed who first but I remember wishing it would never end.

The club closed at 2am but we continued our night, drove to his mom's house to drop off his cousin who lived there, and ended up sitting out in his car till 5:30 in the morning, just talking - it was the best night ever. I left there feeling happy but figured we probably wouldn't see each other again, we had both just gotten out of a relationship and I wasn't rushing anything. We still continued to text and talk the days following.

4 days later, after the night at 444 central ave, we were talking on the phone and he said "I love you! I never stopped loving you, I thought about you throughout the 10 years and I don't want to lose you again" and from there on out we have been inseparable.

Our 5 year anniversary is coming up and I swear I love him like the first night, every night. I still can't believe he found me and reached out to me; I still can't believe he chose me and we are here 5 years later. That night meant everything to us and I want him to relive it as much as possible and never forget that feeling we had.
This gift meant so much to him it made him cry, it made me cry, I'm actually crying now just writing this! There is so much I can not fit on here, but we went through so much to be together and that one night, that one amazing beautiful chance of a life time night, brought me to a man I have been in love with since I was 15.

This is our story and I am so thankful for the opportunity to tell it and to relive it. ❤

Frankfurt, Germany on the 31st of October, 1985, at 7:30pm


A story by Roy M at Frankfurt, Germany on the 31st of October, 1985, at 7:30pm

In August 1985 I was a young American Soldier newly stationed in Frankfurt, Germany...

As a single young man of 19, I would go out adventuring my new surroundings to see the world.
My adventures would take me all over Frankfurt and the surrounding areas. Every weekend (when duties would allow), I would try to see as much as I possibly could of this new chapter of my life. Sometimes friends from the unit would join me but most times I would venture alone. Over time this got very lonely but I continued. I was not the kind of person that frequented the night life so much but occasionally I would join friends for a few drinks. This led me to a small bar in a part of Frankfurt that, unbeknownst to me would change my life forever.

I had been to the bar a few times on weekends and became friends with the owner. Since I was not such a fan of crowded bars, I would also go to the bar during the week, when possible, just to visit my friend. Well, one cool October evening I went to see my friend. It was around 7 pm on 31 October, 1985. After sitting and playing backgammon for a bit, the door of the bar opened and my life changed forever. At around 7:30 pm, the woman that would become my Queen entered the bar. I must admit, I never believed in "Love at first sight" but she made me a believer. I know what most think, "young soldier away from home with only one thing on his mind' - not the case with this encounter.

She wasn't looking for a "GI" and I wasn't looking for a "quick fling". She was friends with the bar owner's wife and had stopped in to see her.
Long story short, after now almost 34 years together I still truly believe that I am the luckiest man in the world.

Under Lucky Stars was an amazing way for me to show my "Queen" how much she really means to me.

I love you more today then I did yesterday, Rose.
