Anyone else just bawling because you can tell how thankful Cole is to have someone as supportive as Lili who loves him and inspires him?!?!? The best relationships are the ones that make us want to be our best selves and those are the ones that have the best chance of lasting forever.
My favourite thing about this interview is just how wholesome and raw it is. Hearing them talk openly about what they love about eachother in front of their friends and a whole camera crew without batting an eyelid.
The way Lili’s eyes fill up after hearing Cole complement her and liken her to Amy is adoration in its truest form. Hearing the man she loves express one of his favourite things about her, paying homage to her mother whilst doing so really hit me hard.
She looks so in love with him, so in awe that he feels the same about her, the emotion overwhelming her. The way he looks into her eyes whilst she’s talking to him, giving her his undivided attention and focus. She knows how much and how hard he’s worked to be able to be stood next to her and he’s constantly pinching himself to see if he’s dreaming or not.
When it comes to her, the world around him stops its rotation and everything is Lili. His romantic tunnel vision blocks out the white noise of his surroundings. The ringing in his ears and the despondence that has spent years burrowing it’s way into his chest begins to ebb, stifled by the siren call of her heart to his.
A lot of people see them together and make assumptions of their lives together, when in reality, we have no idea what goes on behind closed doors. What I can attest to is that these are two incredible souls, nurturing each other to a place where they are able to love and accept themselves. In turn, opening themselves up to the possibility that they could have something more between them, the magnetic pull of their hearts eventually winning out and allowing them to free fall on this wonderful adventure together
