A story by Connor S at Groton, CT, USA on the 10th of October, 2018, at 2:00pm

Connor and I have always known each other. He was my younger sister's best friend in elementary school and I have always been connected with him through mutual friends. We used to communicate through social media 8 years ago when we were teenagers but nothing ever came from it. I heard Connor joined the military through our mutual friends but we did not start talking until back in June 2018.

I fell in love with him the first day we met 1-on-1. I knew he was the one. I always dreamed of a love like this. He asked me to marry him 2 months later while we were drinking milkshakes and eating French fries in a diner. I didn't think he was serious but a month later we were standing on my favorite beach together with just my dad and the justice of the peace and we were eloping. It was at 2pm in our favorite town and at a beach that my mother had always brought me to.
Connor loves space, has always loved the night sky. I knew this was the right gift for us to be able to view every day.

It was perfect, I wanted to capture this moment in every way I could and this star map did it for me.

March 17, 1999 at 6:37am is the exact moment a blessing entered my life.

I gave birth to a beautiful baby girl and since that day she has blessed me every day with love, humor, and beauty. She makes me a better person that I hope one day she can say she is proud of. She has become my best friend and I cannot imagine what my life would be without her.

A story by Alisa S at Bar, Montenegro on the 22nd of November, 2011, at 8:00pm

On that evening, my now husband of 6 years and I promised ourselves to each other.

We were in a beautiful cafe talking about what the future holds for us. He looked deep into my eyes and said: "The future is us, don’t you worry". We were engaged 2 months later and married the following September. In October we welcomed our first child.
The most beautiful part about the constellation map is that there are two people holding hands on it. Looks like it was written in the stars that night for us to be together.

Thank you to Under Lucky Stars for our beautiful map!

A story by Robert C Jr at Dallas, TX, USA on the 11th of October, 2014, at 9:00pm

In 2013 I moved to Dallas Texas from Pensacola Florida where I am from. I started waitressing.

Another year passed, on October 11th my roommate at the time had this table that I have noticed across the room. This was a country/biker restaurant and at her table, there was this guy that stuck out to the regular guests. He had tattoos and bright blue eyes. I got my roommate to let me take over her table.
We got into a conversation with him, we were talking about where we were from. He was there for work and he is from California, so we are from different sides of the US. We then moved on to talking about tattoos and he asked me what was on my arm. I said he wouldn’t know these lyrics nor the band, as they aren’t big. He said he'd give his best shot. I said it was a band called Lydia. I looked down as I said that and saw that he got goosebumps, his jaw dropped. He pulled up his sleave and showed his tattoo of the album cover of the same band and album from the lyrics I have on my arm, we both were stunned.

Now it’s 2019 and we are married and we moved to Kansas City, MO.

At this time and place, my first baby sister was born.
I gave it to her for her 13th birthday, her last one before I leave for college, to remind her that I love her to the stars and back no matter where I go.

A story by Joe P at Wichita, KS, USA on the 22nd of April, 2018, at 4:00am

Joe and Jasmine have known each other since middle school at Haysville Junior High and went on to Campus High School together, graduating a couple of years apart (2002 & 2004). Although they were not close friends, they were friendly with each other over the years.

Fast forward to 2015 and the two become closer and talk more often. In 2016 both were going through some life changes and became nearly inseparable, easy to say “best friends”. The two would meet up to talk about life changes, grab tacos on taco Tuesday, check out random local night scenes, and seek out the best coffee they could find. A few vacations as great friends making great memories.
April 21st, 2018 started like any other night. Dancing, shots, hookah, and tons of laughs. The two were out with friends and the night turned into the next day. While having a private conversation about “Who knows what” in a friends laundry room, Jasmine felt something - a spark, and leaned in without welcome and kissed Joe. He immediately asked, “Where did that come from?”. “It came from the heart,” she replied. Slowly and cautiously their worlds changed. Almost a year later the two have blossomed a beautiful and lasting relationship, continuing to grow and love one another deeply.

That night is a forever reminder of the blessing of change between the two. How friendship turned into a “perfect” relationship.

A story by Molly F at Prescott, AZ, USA on the 19th of February, 2016, at 9:00pm

This was the night our lives changed forever.

We’d known each other for a few years, and we went out a couple times before this night. We took a night walk like we often do and when we stopped to look at the sky you told me. You told me you felt things for me stronger than anything you’d known before. When you said those words to me, my heart fluttered and my soul jumped with joy.

You made me new with your love.

A story by Peter P at Key West, FL 33040, USA on the 15th of January, 1995, at 9:00pm

I was currently serving in the United States Navy on detachment from Naval Air Station Jacksonville FL to NAS Key West. My soon-to-be-girl was in the Navy stationed in Key West.

We were out at a club and I saw her just as I was leaving. I knew of her but had not met her, she saw me in my truck and we said hello and she asked me if I was going back to the base and if I could give her a ride.

Here we are 24 years later, married for 22 years with two wonderful children in high school. I retired from the Navy after 24 years in 2015 and this map was for her for Valentine's day this year. I had it framed and surprised her with it. The quote at the top says: Total Attraction, Tell Me "What's Your Name", which was a Boston song ( What's your name) that was playing in the truck stereo the night we met, so it has special meaning to me. She loved it and it really melted her heart and it now hangs in our master bedroom to see and view every day we wake up and every night we go to bed. It was the perfect old school romantic gift.

I went to Elements Music Festival last year on a whim - got my day ticket and drove up with a friend. It was the last day of the festival and I was meeting a few friends at the Rezz set right before I had to drive home. When I saw them, they were with another friend who they introduced me to for a split second, his name was Casey. I danced with Casey and my friends for two minutes probably, before I took off and bounced around dancing all over the rest of the set. Once it was over, I ran back to grab my bags and some friends I was driving home with.

I hopped onto the shuttle bus that would take us from the festival to my car. There was a guy sitting behind me that kept touching my hat (in his defence it was a soft fuzzy bear hat so I couldn't blame him for wanting to touch it). However, I was tired and not amused at the time so I turned around to give him an intense glare that would cue that I wanted him to stop touching me. I sat back around, and just a couple seconds later AGAIN! HE WAS TOUCHING MY HAT. This time I turned around and gave him a death stare for a solid 10 seconds. I could see he was wildly uncomfortable, so I turned back around and sunk into my seat.

When I got back to my car, I packed in with a few friends and we drove back to Brooklyn. We got home at 5am. The next morning I had to work at 8am. I woke up and was rummaging through my stuff. I picked up the fuzzy bear hat and saw a clothespin attached on the back. I was mortified! That poor kid on the bus was never touching my hat, it had been the clothespin hitting the back of the seat on the bus the entire time.

On the clothespin read, Happy Elements 2018! On the other side of the pin read, @CaseyFnLovesYou - which was Casey's Instagram handle (the guy my friends had introduced me to for a split second at the Rezz set).

I added him on Instagram and we started talking. He lived on Long Island and I lived in Brooklyn - so it was difficult to casually meet up. At one point he jokingly messaged me and said, "Look, I know you're dying to meet me and we don't exactly live close to one another." Then he said, "Why don't we watch a Netflix movie together. You can watch it from your house and I'll watch from mine and we can text through it." I thought that was absolutely adorable and I was excited about it. I hadn't been on a date in a long time and this was perfect. After we watched the movie, he asked if I wanted to meet him for a drink somewhere near me in Brooklyn and we did a few days later.

8 months later - and we're so in love. The universe has a funny way of bringing people together and I couldn't be happier.

London SW1A 1AA, UK on the 9th of June, 2018, at 10:30am

A story by Jennifer B at London SW1A 1AA, UK on the 9th of June, 2018, at 10:30am

It was the 9th of June and I took a day-trip from Bournemouth to London. Once I got there, I walked to Buckingham Palace as that is always the way I start. Once I got there, I noticed how busy it was - it was the queen's birthday.

I stayed until I was ready to go on with my journey through London. That's when I heard an American accent behind me getting closer. I turned around to see the most beautiful woman in a red summer dress walk up next to me to ask a police officer how to get to the same traffic lights I was looking to get to! I just stared in awe trying to tell myself to say something to her. I didn't have the nerve and she walked off, so I just walked in the same direction shortly after, feeling quite sad I didn't pluck up the courage.
All of a sudden she walked back in my direction and without hesitation I stopped her and asked if she had found the traffic lights, and I offered to take her. She told me she was Jennifer from Seattle, and that she was visiting Europe as some of her family lived in Norway and she was spending her birthday with them. I then told her a bit about myself and then we watched the queen and other royals come out of the palace, but I had to leave after because I needed to find a place to charge my phone.
As I said goodbye she asked if I didn't mind her hanging out with me for a while and of course I said I'd love to! We spent the day together sightseeing and talking about each other's countries. We then exchanged contact details and when we got home we video called every day and one day she surprised me with a visit for my birthday.
We soon became a couple and had a great week spending time in my home town and meeting my family. I then went to Seattle to visit her and meet her family and friends, and I asked her to marry me, she said yes!
Since we met we have video called every single day and we are soon closing the distance. Until then, sending each other letters and gifts like the Under Lucky Stars map, means everything to us and we continue to do that until we are living together. There were so many times where something nearly stopped us meeting but we both followed god's path and it brought us together.

Written by Cameron, the fiancé.
