“Sometimes, love can be found in the simplest things, like spending a blissful morning in the kitchen. You can be in the same room without having to do everything together. It is hugging each other accidentally while sleeping. Even the most mundane tasks are more fun when you do them together. Even shopping for food can be exciting. True love means putting everything aside just to hug. The biggest dilemma is often what to eat for dinner. Even if you’re feeling a bit blue, there’s always someone that will hold your hand. Love is about the little things. Happiness is when both of you read in bed after an exceptionally tiring day. Building IKEA furniture is like playing with LEGO when it’s just the two of you. Sometimes, you have to ask hard questions. Cooking together often becomes the most challenging and the most fun task. Even the tiniest problems matter to your loved one. It’s having those long talks in bed about everything and anything. It’s when you know your favorite cuddling positions. It’s having a favorite cafe, where only you two matter. The cold autumn wind can’t touch you because your heart always stays warm. Love means knowing when you need to say sorry. There is nothing more comfortable than falling asleep on your loved one’s lap. It is about exploring new things, even if it’s just your neighborhood park. It’s knowing that it’s not always rainbows and butterflies, it’s compromise that moves us along. As long as both of you are headed the same way, everything will be just fine.”

True love isn’t always about big romantic gestures.
Sometimes it’s about sympathizing with someone whose tea has gone cold or reading together and sharing a quilt. When two people move in together, it soon becomes apparent that the little things mean an awful lot. The throwaway moments in life become meaningful when you spend them in the company of someone you love.
