Katy Perry and John Mayer aren't making sweet music anymore.

Just seven months after rekindling their romance late last year, the couple has called it quits for a second time, going their separate ways to concentrate on their respective careers.

But you know what they say — the end always makes you think about the beginning. So instead of lamenting love lost, let's reminisce on the good times that Perry, 28, and Mayer, 35, shared throughout their relationship.

Remember their hipster-chic New York City nights? Those low-key sushi dinners à deux in Los Angeles? That beach-bum getaway in Hawaii? Or the glam weekend feting the 55th annual Grammy Awards?

As the book closes on one of pop music's most buzzed-about pairs, Celebuzz relives the high points of the Perry-Mayer love story.

Sparks Fly: Mayer and Perry ignited romance rumors as they leave the famed Chateau Marmont in Los Angeles, Calif., together.

Party Pair: The couple continued to step out side-by-side, even attending a friend's house party together last August in Los Feliz, Calif.

Back On: Making their reunion more than official, Perry and Mayer painted New York City red in October, dining at Pearl restaurant before dancing the night away at Soho House with pals.

Birthday Boy: Mayer feted his 35th birthday in NYC's Lower East Side with his lady on his arm, from dinner at Freeman's to clubbing at The Box.

All In The Family: Kicking off the holiday season, the pair treated Mayer's father, Richard, to dinner at old-school eatery Sardi's in New York City's Theater District.

Santa Claus Cheer: The couple got in the spirit by posing with the cast of  A Christmas Story, The Musical, a Broadway performance during an NYC December.

Island Life: Before ringing in 2013, the couple escaped the Hollywood limelight to get down and dirty — and even ride ATVs — in Hawaii.

The Obama-nation: Perry and Mayer showed their patriotic spirit while witnessing history at President Barack Obama's January inauguration.

Grammy Glam: The couple had the look of love throughout Grammy Award weekend in February, from color-coordinated pre-ceremony celebrating to cozying up in the front row at the 55th annual award show.

Love In The Air: Perry and Mayer couldn't keep their hands to themselves during their Valentine's Day dinner meal at Italian eatery Vincenti in Brentwood, Calif.

A Walk To Remember: The lovebirds were last spotted together hiking the Hollywood Hills on March 6, just days before their breakup hit headlines.

    I really thought they brought out the best in one another. Or at least she brought out the best in John. They seemed so well matched. Think about how cool Katy is. She is the biggest star on the planet - yet has no hang ups or neurosis about it. No entourage. She is so down to earth. Loved them together, but she'll be fine. John's loss.

    I can't say that I'm surprised considering Mayer's track record... but at least this time the break up seemed to be agreed upon rather than a messy 'who broke who's heart.'
