Once upon a time..

Once upon a time..

We met on a warm night of September at Bemolle Caffe, thanks to our friends Ana and Dragos who brought us together. Iulia: We exchanged numbers so that Cristi could join Ana and I to a club later that night. Cristi only arrived later to bring us back home, which was very nice of him 🙂

September 8

First Date

First Date

Iulia: Our first date was at a pizza place. Later that evening we met with some friends and Cristi behaved like a total gentleman. Soon after midnight we had our first kiss in front of the National Bank in the Old City Center. It was magical!

First Trip Together – Bran

First Trip Together – Bran

Our first trip together was on a weekend away in Bran. We spent two days there walking around, drinking mulled wine and singing folk music by the fire..

During this trip we got to know each other better, including our fears and past issues.

Best Cheesecake – Milan

Best Cheesecake – Milan

Soon after our trip to Bran, we went to Milan, where we found the best cheesecake ever! We walked the streets of the city, discovering all kinds of attractions, restaurants and much more. Cristi got his first Pom Pom Beanie (which he lost soon after).

First “I love you”

First “I love you”

Our first time snowboarding together was in Sinaia. It was a great day and an adventure as we almost missed the gondola to bring us back down to the car – the mix of emotions got Cristi to say his first “I love you” to Iulia.

December 25

Met the parents

Christmas in 2015 was also full of emotions as we both got to meet each other’s parents. Thankfully, they’re all great, so it wasn’t that hard:)

Hexart is born

Soon after Valentine’s Day, we started a small business bringing hex nuts alive through jewelry. We went to a lot of events promoting our crafts and even appeared on TV. We used the money for our next adventure abroad.

Our first time in an Ice Bar was in Stockholm – where we spend an hour and drank Absolut vodka cocktails from Ice glasses.

Iulia’s Birthday – Rose Gift

Iulia’s Birthday – Rose Gift

Iulia: When he asked what would be the one person I would love to have at my birthday, I said “Rose!”. So one day prior to my birthday, he’d flown Rose to Bucharest and brought her to my house. It was the best gift ever!

Cristi’s 30th Birthday – Treasure Hunt

Cristi’s 30th Birthday – Treasure Hunt

Iulia: As he got used to my treasure hunts, for his 30th birthday I created a more thorough treasure hunt within the city of Bucharest, where he had to remember places and dates in order to move to the final clue, that was a MacBook Pro. This gift wouldn’t have been possible without Cristi’s parents, my parents, and all our friends!

August 11

First Road Trip

First Road Trip

Our first road trip started in Bucharest and we went through Sofia (Bulgaria), Skopje & Ohrid (Macedonia), Tirana & Shkoder (Albania), Budva & Kotor (Montenegro), Dubrovnik, Lokrum, Split & Zadar (Croatia), Bled & Ljublijana (Slovenia) and Siofok (Hungary). It was an amazing trip, looking forward to the next!

Cristi: I know she likes to travel, and she likes treasure hunts, so I had an idea. I’ll combine them with the perfect ending!

Iulia: He made a 7-day long treasure hunt for me (it was a real challenge, I’m not even kidding!) 

August 17

The Proposal

The Proposal

Cristi: You want to propose? There’s an app for that :)) Just kidding, I made that app for the woman I love once I realised that I want to spend my lifetime loving her.  Hours of coding, thinking and re-thinking the biggest Treasure Hunt my Iulia could imagine. This got me to around 70 clues in 5 countries. The last one was in Lokrum ( the love island ) were I proposed and she said “YES YES YES”. This answer made me the luckiest man alive!

IuliaI am the most intuitive person I know and I still didn’t expect it. It was a great shock and a wonderful surprise to be proposed in such a beautiful place.

Found the Perfect Godparents!

Found the Perfect Godparents!

Having courage to ask Dany and Marius was huge for us! We made a little web game with Game of Thrones (the one thing we knew they surely liked) and had only one possible ending: Asking them to be our godparents! And they said yes. ON THE SPOT! Woohoo!

We became Godparents ourselves

We became Godparents ourselves

Iulia: Right after Cristi and I got engaged, we met with Ana and Calin to tell the story. However, they had their own story to tell, that being that they started planning their own wedding! This was a long-awaited moment and we were so happy to hear the great news! Even more unexpected was when they asked us to be their godparents. We were thrilled and nervous and vowed to be there for them no matter what.

Sabina was extremely kind to make me a bridesmaid at her wedding. I was honored and I had a blast being part of Sabina’s Squad!

We found the perfect pair of padrinos!

We found the perfect pair of padrinos!

We were very sad that Dany and Marius were unable to attend the wedding in Mexico, but because we wanted to have the guidance of godparents there as well, we asked our dearest friends, Andreea and Doru. Nachos, micheladas, a serenade and cakes to satisfy their sweet tooth, and they said yes!
We feel very blessed to have the best pair of godparents, Dany and Marius – as well as the best pair of padrinos, Andreea and Doru to be part of our family!

After a very busy year we decided to take a break and enjoy ourselves in the middle of the Indian Ocean. We went on a cruise to Mauritius, Seychelles, Madagascar and Reunion Islands. Highlights: Iulia got bitten by a lemur, we petted lions and cubs and fed giraffes with our bare hands!
