Everyone has that special moment in their life that is worth making into a star map.
We asked you to tell us about yours.
Here are some of our favorites stories.

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.-

This was the date and time my husband and I met each other.
Silly story, but we actually met in Defensive Driving School. We joke saying it was the most expensive first date ever. We went out to lunch that day and immediately connected. I knew within a week I was going to marry him. I was 18 and he was 21.
Nearly 16 years later, almost 14 of them married, and we are still going STRONG!

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!

This is where I met the love of my life and future wife, Kathy.
We had both previously been married and gone through a divorce. We also both had custody of our children, she had a boy and a girl and I also had a boy and a girl. We had both promised our kids a trip to the beach, little did I know that this trip would change everyone's life.
I arrived at Zuma beach with my two children around 10:00am driving around the parking lot trying to find a spot. The first spot I found was too far away from the restrooms, so I looked for a spot closer to them, I did. I pulled into a spot and the kids ran down to the ocean to get wet while I unloaded our chairs and blanket. At around 11:00 I noticed my children were playing with two other children, when a beautiful woman walked up to me and asked if it was ok for her kids to be playing with my kids and if we were hungry. I asked her to join me on the blanket and she brought over some food and all of us sat down to have some lunch. As the kids resumed playing in the water, Kathy and I just sat and talked for several hours, until it started to get late and we all had to leave. As we packed up our belongings and walked to the parking lot, I asked her for her phone number, which she gave me. To our surprise, we were actually parked next to each other in the lot, go figure the odds on that.
I know you're supposed to wait a few days before you call a woman you just met, but I just couldn't wait, and I called her as soon as I got home to ask her out to dinner, she accepted my invitation. The following Friday, we met for dinner and had a wonderful night.
A week later she moved in with me, which was the beginning of a new life together that lasted 30+ wonderful years.
I still go to the spot we met to remember the great times we had together, until she passed away from a surgery accident.

On this very special moment, my little baby girl was born. As someone who always lived the free life and never had any interest in kids, I was a little reluctant. How wrong could I be...
From the moment I looked into her eyes and felt her in my arms, my life totally changed. The feelings I got were so overwhelming, words cannot describe them.
Since then she completely changed my way of living, my ideas, my behaviour and my thoughts. She made me a better version of myself and I will always be grateful for that.
When I came across Under Lucky Stars, I thought that this was the perfect commemoration for this moment.
I gave it to her with these words handwritten on a card and had her decide where to put it up. She wanted it above the dinner table. Every evening, when we enjoy our dinner together, we look at it and remind ourselves how grateful we are to have each other.

The day was like any other day and the evening went very well on this day, and this particular morning my grandson was born.
He was the love of my life and my very first grandchild. But the good Lord wanted him a month and 4 days after he was born so I ended up doing the lucky stars for my daughter, he was her son.
That day will always be in my mind. RIP Noah Allen.

Unfortunately, this wasn’t a day of celebration.
This is the exact moment my grandpa took his final breath. And although it was a very sad day and one of the hardest days of my life, we all found comfort in knowing my grandma was waiting for him in heaven. So this is not only time he left us, but the moment he was with the love of his life again.
We are holding on to the fact that Grandma was waiting for him.
I gifted this to my dad and my aunt. Their mother, my grandma passed away 28 years ago. And losing their father, my grandpa, was extremely hard. This brought tears in their eyes both sad and happy ones.
Thank you for letting me tell my story.

Three/four years ago, my step father had a double lung transplant. It was a 7 month battle that escalated very quickly at the end, luckily he received a donor just in time.
Two years after the surgery he started getting very sick again, they didn’t understand why. October of 2017 we heard the words no one ever wanted to hear, cancer. Later found it was mesothelioma.
My mom and and step father got married in the chapel of the university of Pennsylvania on January 26, 2018, he lost his battle and we lost him, one year ago today. March 8th, 2018. My mom had to celebrate her first anniversary without her husband, so my sister and I decided to make it special for her and get her a map of the stars on the day and time they were married.
There are no words to help heal her, so we are doing our best to help her cope and keep his memory alive. She absolutely loved it, so thank you for your wonderful business!

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.

I met my future wife in Kalamazoo, Mi on Feb 20th 2010 somewhere between 10pm and 11pm. I was single and in my early 20s and although I was getting tired of playing the field but my friends had convinced me to go out on a whim. I am lesbian and at the time the Metro Bar was the only gay friendly bar in the immediate area so naturally that is where we usually ended up.
I will admit that when I saw my wife that I was a wee bit intoxicated but I found out that she was as well. I sauntered up to the bar that she was sitting at, alone, and ordered a drink but kept her in my side view as I ordered. As I was waiting I turned to her and I told her that I thought she was pretty. This was kind of a bold move for me but I had some liquid courage so I was feeling (overly)confident. She looked at me and her response was "You're straight". So for the next hour or so we went back and forth like that. I found out about her job and where she was from and that we had some mutual friends (which is not uncommon in the LGBT community). I went home that night a little dazed and not just because of the alcohol.
The next morning when I woke up I tried to recount my evening and could not for the life of me remember my her name. I knew that I had talked to someone who I thought was attractive and she knew one of my friends and that she was really funny. So I did some light "facebook stalking" and managed to figure out who she was (thankfully!). Knowing my wife she would not have gone through these lengths because she is much shyer than I am so luckily I remembered enough to find her!
I added her on facebook and we started chatting and picked up right where we left off. She charmed me with her wit and humor and I knew pretty quickly that we were right for each other. We agreed to meet the following weekend at the same bar and spot and the rest is herstory.
The bar is now defunct but it holds such a special memory for us. As a young LGBTQ person you need to have safe spaces to meet and just be yourself and the Metro provided that for us. I may have never met my wife if we didn't have the Metro.
The photo was taken in June 2014 on our wedding day. :} We couldn't legally get married in our home state so we went to Niagara Falls, NY. In June of 2015 our marriage was made legal federally, which includes our home state of Michigan.
