The band is formed06/08/2011I decided to start a band with some colleagues as I was taking drumming classes. The band needed a bass player and Martin volunteered even if he did not know how to play bass: he signed up for a course. At the time I had no idea what was going on...http://www.designboom.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/06/google-dublin-camenzind-evolution-designboom-11.jpgdesignboom.comDublin, Ireland53.3398029,-6.2384667

First unintentional date04/05/2011I was planning to go check out some jazz gigs when I sent out invites. In the end only one person confirmed and showed up at the event: Martin. After listening to the concert we ended up at the Foam Cafe where we listened to some more music, where Martin accidentally ordered a beef stroganoff thinking it as a beeR stroganoff...https://dublinshiddengems.files.wordpress.com/2013/01/img_0216.jpgDublin, Ireland53.3469613,-6.2648122,3

Mull it over a pizza03/02/2012Inevitably we started back going to watch some movies and eventually we went to have a pizza with some common friends after work. When I was home I realised I kept enjoying being around Martin and so I texted him. It was not over yet, only the start.http://www.menupages.ie/images/550x344/6001_menupages-juniors-paulies-pizza-exterior.jpgDublin, Ireland53.3374278,-6.2368761,17

The first kiss25/02/2012By that day Martin and I had started dating, but only when he invited me to a concert of Henry Mancini at the National Concert Hall I understood how much he liked me. I love Mancini's music and especially his soundtrack of Breakfast at Tiffany's: it was a perfect, romantic evening I simply could not wait to attend. By the end of the night, Martin and I kissed for the first time.http://streamd.hitparade.ch/cdimages/henry_mancini_and_his_orchestra-moon_river_s_2.jpgDublin, Ireland53.3347935,-6.2591984,1

The first visit to Procida22/06/2012Armed with little to no Italian, I braced myself to visit Procida, where I saved the day and became a local hero by repairing a faulty computer. From my time on the beach, I will be remembered as 'the French mozarella' for my white complexion.https://farm2.staticflickr.com/1468/24849738411_507b4fbc3b_k.jpgProcida, Italy40.759264, 14.014192

Move to London20/06/2013We decided to start a new chapter of our life in London. Martin moved there in May 2013 and Maria arrived shortly after, on July 2013. We moved in a trendy flat in Islington, surrounded by arsenal fans, furniture sellers and a pot-smoking neighbor that was giving our bathroom a great flavour.http://li.zoocdn.com/c2fe822522f5068b61965162565a3db6a70a86e3_645_430.jpgLondon, UK51.5456253,-0.1033938,17

The proposal30/01/2016After a day of Spa treatment Martin and I were in the hotel room chilling on the bed, well watching TV when suddenly I must have said something romantic because Martin pounced at the opportunity and with a swift movement rolled on his back and produced an engagement ring out of his pocket!!! It could only be a 'Yes!'... with some laughs before and after.https://scontent-lhr3-1.cdninstagram.com/t51.2885-15/s750x750/sh0.08/e35/12725181_123505534703214_1737784258_n.jpg?ig_cache_key=MTE4NDAxNDYwODAzMTgwNjM5MA%3D%3D.2Reading, UK51.437532,-0.891524,17
