One month before I was meant to move to Ireland on a year-long work visa, I went to a concert in Philadelphia by myself. The band is called Little Green Cars. After the show, I happened to hear a group of people with Irish accents. I started talking with them about how I was moving to Ireland but didn’t know where I was going to live. They suggested Galway, Ireland (where they went to school). I took their advice, and moved there in May of 2016, not knowing a soul.
A few months later in August, I told a new friend of mine this story and sure enough, he knew the people I had met back home in Philadelphia! He told me they would be at his house party. I ended up having a great conversation with one of the Irish girls I met Philadelphia. The next party she was at, we ended up gazing at the stars together in the backyard. I pointed out some of the constellations I knew. Two months later we were dating, and a year after our star gazing, we eloped.
April 20th, 2016, around 11pm is when I met the woman I want to spend the rest of my life with. The caption “It’s Easy To Fall In Love With You” is from a song by the Little Green Cars.
