This was my first kiss with the love of my life.
It was our first date. We had been talking over the phone and texts for a couple weeks before this first date. We planned 3 parts of the date: go to lunch, go see Star Wars, and then she wanted to go to this popular Christmas lights show at Mozart’s in Austin.
So, effectively, our first date lasted pretty much all day because the Mozart’s part was at night under Christmas lights. It was the best first date I’ve ever been on.
The Under Lucky Stars poster part comes in when we were at Mozart’s. That’s where we shared our first kiss. I had never been, but I’d heard of this place before.
We walked up and you could hear the music playing and see the lights from a block away. It was the PERFECT place for a first kiss. I was really nervous though going into it because I didn’t want to seem too forward with wanting to kiss her on our first date, but I was having such a good time and the vibes were so good that I wanted to, really bad! We had already broken down some physical barriers to this point like holding hands and she was cool with me putting my arm around her and stuff, so that made it less nerve-racking.
We finally found a spot to sit down after walking around and waiting for a while because it was so crowded and busy there. I remember sitting there next to her, holding her hand, listening to both Christmas music and non-Christmas music alike...seeing her beautiful smile under the Christmas lights and making her laugh (I love her laugh) and I knew she was someone special. I also caught myself, multiple times, getting lost in the most gorgeous light brown eyes I’ve ever seen.
But I knew that if I didn’t go for it, I would probably regret it. So, there was a moment while listening to the music under all those Christmas lights at around 7 pm that evening where she happened to look up at me and gave me the most innocent, happy look and I knew that was the moment - so I leaned in and kissed her.
It was one of the most magical feelings I’ve ever felt in my life.
I will forever hold that day as a special treasure in my heart.
