The act of being in love has less to do with expensive gifts and boxes of chocolate and more about many small and tender moments. It is usually the most mundane and innocent everyday happenings that show us love's true meaning. Artist Philippa Rice used her own relationship with her boyfriend as the inspiration for her illustrations called Soppy.
The comics reflect how small actions like sitting together can become the most romantic things a couple can do for each other. Although the drawings are about her own personal life, everyone who is in a relationship can see a little bit of themselves in them. Her Soppy story was published into a comic book last year.
Love can be as simple as making breakfast together.
Grocery shopping is romantic.
Couples seem to know when a cuddle is needed the most.
Trying to come up with a delicious meal together can only bring a couple closer.
Building the furniture together is a true test of patience.
A bad day feels better when someone is holding your hand.
True comfort is knowing you can fall asleep anywhere as long as he's there.
Brushing your teeth together becomes one of your favorite daily routines.
Finding the best cuddling position on the couch is bliss.
The future looks brighter when you're facing it together.
Intimacy is the different ways you connect with each other throughout the night.
Love happens when you can stay in bed together and talk about anything and everything.
Finding that perfect spot that it's just for the two of you.
Reading together is the best feeling ever.
