Love is mostly in the small things

Philippa Rice is talented in many way, for instance, she’s a fantastic painter. She made a simple, but beautiful illustration, which shows how wonderful it is to live with someone you love.

Rice doesn’t use hearts, flowers or other signs that are usually associated with love. Because love isn’t about that, but about finding a shared routine, starting the day together with a smile and finishing the days of in the arms of a loved one.

Sometimes love is expressed with simple things, such as drinking coffee together in the morning.


You can spend your time together doing nothing at all.


Randomly hugging during sleep.


Even the most mundane tasks are fun when you do them together.


You can even find some joy in shopping with each other.
