On May 6, 2017 my friends and I (a married couple) attended a gala that their company was hosting. Toward the end of the event, we were invited to go to a lounge upstairs for a few drinks. We ended up in a lounge that has an outside view of the city. My friend Dianne and I decided to check out the view and ended up exchanging some words with two gentlemen standing near us, the exchange was perhaps less than 10 minutes.
The view was so beautiful that my friend Dianne wanted a picture, so I told her I would take one of her and her husband, she insisted that I be in the picture too, but I didn’t want to be the third wheel, like I had been for the past 2 years. While we were going back and forth on whether or not I should be in the picture, I turn over and I see Tony — one of the two gentlemen my friend and I were talking to, and who is now my boyfriend. Something came over me to ask him to be my “picture date” — who says that?!
Anyway, he said OK and agreed to take a picture with me and my friends. That picture was taken at exactly 12:34 on May, 2017. Soon after, the gentleman that invited us to the lounge came over and asked me directly to go inside for our drinks. Afraid that Tony would get the wrong impression that this guy was my boyfriend, I immediately told him that this guy was my consultant and he told me what to do. Tony then asked for my number and we have been together ever since. I gave him the star map for Christmas because I want us to always remember the night we both took a chance.
That night when we met we were literally under the lucky starts.
