My boyfriend and I began dating on April 15, 2017 at 5:49am. We had met in my hometown of Charlottesville, VA, and became very close friends about a month beforehand.
We had discovered at that time that we both love stars, and decided to go out stargazing together that night. The stars have a way of making people talk deeply to one another, and during our deep discussion, a shooting star made its way across the night sky. I made my wish and he made his. And while I don't know what he wished for that night, my wish came true.
Not long after our shooting star, we kissed under the light of the night sky. We are both Irish, and I wear a claddagh ring, which symbolizes one's relationship status based on how you wear it. After talking for hours, pacing around the room, and discussing what our future together would be like, at 5:49am he turned my claddagh ring around, and we were officially together.
I got him this star chart for our one year anniversary, so we can always remember the stars of the night our journey together began.
