Heartwarming Illustrations Show That Love Is In The Small Things

Philippa Rice is a multi-talented artist who creates simple but beautiful comics about the everyday joys of living with someone you love. The title of her comic book, Soppy, is unapologetically fitting!

Rice forgoes the usual stuff like hearts and roses, going instead for the everyday ways we share love with our significant others – be it our morning routines, a hug and a snuggle, or finishing the day in each others’ arms. If you love these pictures as much as we do, be sure to check out Puuung’s illustrations as well!

More info: Amazon | philippajrice.com | FB | Twitter (h/t: brightsidedesignyoutrust)

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

If you like these heartwarming images, you can find her book on Amazon

Actually my ex and I once assembled Ikea furniture together. That went okay. It was very much fun actually. Ikea is peanuts. Just follow the instrunctions and it's childs play. Assembling Ikea furniture was the only fun and good thing in our short lived marriage. :/

In June I'm starting living together with my beloved one. Things like this gives me courage. I'm so excting about it. Right now, she is a bit of stress because of the furniture, electrodomestics and stuff like that. I'm just chill. If I have a bed and food, I live anywhere. Wish me the best, guys.
