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.
