On the 18th of may I met the love of my life...

A couple of years ago I went to party with some friends and one of them introduced him to us. At first I didn't pay much attention to him, but after a while we started dancing and talking and something just clicked.

Then we went to sit on the grass, and talked for a while. Eventually we laid back and looked at the stars. After a while he leaned closer to kiss me and at the exact moment of our first kiss, rain started to fall on us. That was a night that we never forgot.

Every year since then, on the 18th of may, we go out to the same party; sit at the same spot; and look upon the stars.

I gave my brother and his now-wife a star chart as a wedding gift.

My brother mentioned that his significant other loves sentimental gifts and, as best man, I felt like I couldn’t just get something off the registry. I think I saw a star chart on Twitter, a tweet saying a woman’s girlfriend gave it to her as an anniversary present and I knew a little about the constellations from my time when I worked at a museum, helping run the small planetarium.

When I gave the newly weds their star chart, she started tearing up. So based solely on that, I think this was the perfect gift and I recommend it to anyone who’s looking for something a little extra when it comes to a gift.

Make sure you get the frame too!

A story by Christina V at Indianapolis, IN, USA on the 28th of April, 2018, at 12:00am

The creation of my star map was in regards to meeting a special someone who came into my life and has became my best friend...

At the time in question, I went to a random bonfire with some work friends, not anticipating meeting anyone - as I was still getting over a long-time boyfriend - but there he was. We bonded over having similar circumstances and unfortunate happenings that we didn't deserve. There's not a day since I met him that I haven't spoken to him, so on the year mark, I decided to gift him this poster.
It's a keepsake that, no matter where our lives lead us, we will always be a part of the same universe. The purchase is one I couldn't be any happier with and the quality is breath-taking.

Thank you "Under the Lucky Stars" for giving me the perfect gift to exchange, to mark the occasion of finding my star in the Galaxy, that is so often a rarity in this day and age.

This was the moment my boyfriend and I confessed to each other that we liked each other...

1 am seems so late but so much happened before this moment. We started off as best friends but I quickly fell in love with him - but a few hours before we confessed, we went to go wash his car and it was the best bonding moment I've had with him. We were just acting silly and didn't give a care in the world. Then we went to Bahama Bucks and watched the sunset. After that we drove around and once we got to the parking lot to my dorm, we sat there and talked for hours.

We were playing with each other's hands and we would talk about the deepest things in our life and things we would never talk about. I felt so comfortable and so in love at that moment, I was hoping he would finally make the first move! Luckily he did! Before I left, he told me he needed to tell me something and if he doesn't say it now he'll never say it. He had tears in his eyes bc of his past heartbreak that he was so scared that I didn't feel the same way back towards him. But when I saw his face I couldn't help but give him the love that he deserved. So after, he told me he really likes me and just loves to be around me. I also took the courage to tell him that I really liked him too and that I felt so comfortable and worry free around him.

We've been dating for over a year now and this is my special moment and reason why I made a star chart of this amazing night.

A story by Maira S at Singapore on the 13th of October, 2017, at 10:30pm

I clearly remember the night of October 13th. Our story isn’t a romantic one but it means a lot to both of us...

We started talking on Tinder, 2 months later I agreed to meet him. I still remember waiting for him that night. He was running late. When he finally arrived, sparks didn’t fly, I just felt like I knew him for a very long time. I felt calm. I felt safe. I felt a sense of peacefulness when I saw him.

If I hadn’t agreed to meet him on the night of 13th October 2017, I wouldn’t have met my husband-to-be and that’s why that night means so much to me.

Thank you for the lovely star map! I stare at it every single day to relive the memory of that lucky night ;)

This was the day my future became beautiful...

The love of my life was born at exactly that moment. Although it sounds tacky, it really is true. We met when we were just 15 years old and instantly I was smitten. She wasn’t quite so interested in me. I pursued her for well over a year before she even agreed to date me, but I just couldn’t be discouraged.

I knew from the very first moment that I wanted to share every possible minute with this girl. As kids usually do, we both made mistakes and found ourselves separated without any real hope of reconciliation. Some people discredited what we had as infatuation or a high school relationship. I always knew it was more than that. I fought my way back to her and today she is once again at my side.

Perhaps the best thing about her is her ability to never lose sight of the stars. She has a passion for the beauty around her, yet sometimes seems oblivious to the beauty that radiates from her. I chose to give her a picture of the stars at the exact moment of her birth because I wanted her to see how beautiful the stars were the very second she was brought into this world. I told her that that was the moment my future became beautiful. I think she took it as a compliment to her physical beauty which, of course, it was.

Honestly, my future is beautiful simply because I know she’s in it, because every moment under my lucky stars from today til the end will be with her. I can think of nothing more beautiful than that.

A story by Colton M at Commerce, TX 75428, USA on the 17th of November, 2018, at 8:30pm

Well our story started at an honor band performance in commerce, Texas...

I was standing in the lobby waiting for my family to exit the auditorium when Emily came up and started a conversation. I worked up the courage to ask for her phone number before her family came and took her away from me. We had a brief conversation over text that night and then didn’t talk again, as I was seeing someone else at the time.

After the current girl broke up with me, I decided to give Emily a text. We began talking and a week later I asked her out to dinner. I drove to her house and met her dad, he was a little intimidating at first but I soon melted his scary shell and he became my favorite part about the relationship.

After a couple more dates, we went to each other's prom and had a pretty mediocre time at both. Neither of us are into party music and there wasn’t anything to dance to. After the second prom, I could tell things were on the downhill. She didn’t talk as much and when we were together, she didn’t act very interested. I was going to give her the star map for our first anniversary but a couple hours before we went out to dinner, she texted me and said she wasn’t feeling well. Later that night she called me and broke up with me. She was a year younger than I and I was about to graduate so she said our priorities were too far apart.

Really sucks because I liked her a lot. I was her first boyfriend and I guess she just wasn’t ready for a relationship.

A story by Isha N at Delhi, India on the 8th of June, 2013, at 7:00pm

When I met my better half aka husband in 2013, little did I know we'd end up happily together. Which is why on 8th June, our 6th anniversary, I decided to make it really special.

My husband and I met on 8th June 2013 and it was our very first date. We got married 3 years back but we still celebrate our first dating anniversary every year. I was looking for a unique gift that would hold some meaning.

I came across Under Lucky Stars and instantly ordered. I loved the concept so much so that I told everyone about it, except of course him! And when I gifted him the artwork at midnight, he almost was speechless for some time and almost choked at seeing the amazingly thoughtful gift.

The title 'And I Call It Magic' is taken from the very popular Coldplay song; Magic as we both love Coldplay songs.

We've hung it over our bed and it looks amazing each day and reminds us of all the beautiful years we've spent together. I love everything about the artwork, the impeccable quality coupled with very timely delivery makes me want to order again!

A story by James P at Mt Washington, KY 40047, USA on the 21st of November, 2018, at 11:30pm

November 21st was the night of our first date...

We walked all over the park outside town, went and got ice cream, and then sat outside her house and looked at the stars that are on the map that I gave her.

I got it for her so she could take it to college and keep a little piece of home with her.

I got this star chart for my Mom on mother’s day because that date and time is when I was born and I’m her first child, so it’s the day she first became a momma!
