On the 13th of September, 2013 I finally married the girl of my dreams.
I had a crush on her from the moment I met here at the grade school but never got up the courage to go for it. We were best friends in High School and went separate ways after that. Then I heard she was getting married and I was happy for her, of course, but secretly devastated. I thought I had lost my chance forever. I regretted every missed opportunity and every time I should have told her how I felt. However, the universe works in mysterious ways, and not too long after that, I heard they had separated. I didn't hesitate. I got in touch with her immediately and it was as nothing had changed. She was the same girl I was crazy about most of my life, but this time I let her know. I wasn't going to miss my shot again. We went walking in our town during the days, and spent our nights out under the stars. I had finally found someone to share in my more nerdy hobbies. I taught her about the stars and constellations. And she taught me again what it was like to be truly happy.
I knew from our first official date I was going to marry her, and it didn't take me long to ask. I had done enough waiting for this to happen. We always had fun together in our own little world and liked things to be our way. So Friday the 13th seemed like the perfect choice. It was the happiest day of my life and it has been amazing ever since then.
About a year later we got a telescope and continued our little adventures under the stars with meteor showers and lunar eclipses and so on. I thought this star chart would be a perfect birthday gift for her and she loves it. We were married outside so it is even more fitting to have a star chart for that date and time.
