"When I first met you, I honestly didn't know you were going to be so important to me."
This thought crosses the mind of every person who has ever been in love or a relationship. But one often wonders, what is love? Togetherness, selflessness, bonding? Okay, these are some of the terms which show aspects of love. But is it even possible to actually describe it? Maybe, Maybe not. After all, love is something which cannot be expressed in words. Maybe poetry or art can give a glimpse of how love looks.
One shouldn't underestimate the power of an artist's imagination, after all. Those small little things like getting them a chocolate or those big things like taking care of them when they're sick. From binge-watching TV shows to falling asleep in each other's arms, this artist and illustrator managed to show what 'love' looks like in real life. If you've ever been in love, you'll be able to relate.
These illustrations about love will make your day a little better.
Take a look.
You know you wouldn't EVER give that first bite to anyone but them because that's how much you love them.
From combing their hair to cutting their toenails, you've done everything. Their hairy legs don't bother you anymore and they don't even get pissed off anymore when you fart in the middle of a serious conversation. You've shared the most intimate moments together and you know nothing can keep you apart.
You know your relationship is awesome when you can do the most personal and gross things in front of each other without feeling shy.
When you enter the grocery store thinking you'll just quickly get that one thing but end up with a bunch of things (like always; why don't you ever learn?) and they get you a basket. Knowing your quirks and still living with them isn't easy but they make it look so lovable.
Because when they're with you, you don't really need anything else.
Be it for a day or a week, going away is always hard. You know they can't come with you but you keep asking them anyway.
Because they aren't there, you end up binge watching TV, eating, and sleeping. And nothing can fill that void.
Business meetings or family getaways or any such events where both of you can't go. You know it's short but you still can't wait for them to be back. Hence, the endless wait begins.
No day is ever bad because you get to come home to the love of your life. It's not like you never fight, but you do patch up regardless of whose fault it is.
When you cuddle away your entire weekend without a shred of regret. When your pet wants your attention too and you all end up sharing the bed.
When you look forward to those cooking sessions to get some 'us' time. You cook, eat, and snuggle in bed later. Weekends sorted!
When there's a strand of hair in food and you both know whose is it. Buuut it's okay because she put her heart in it and somehow her hair ended up there too.
When one of you can't sleep but looking at your partner sleep makes you forget about everything else.
When you wake up to seeing yourself as the next Bellatrix Lestrange and he effortlessly looks like Cedric Diggory. (Once a Potterhead, always a Potterhead)
You know if the your partner needs support and you do whatever it takes to feel them better.
When one of you ends up sleeping on movie night because they aren't really into superhero movies. You feel super annoyed but forgive them like always.
He's hot when she's shivering, she likes spicy food while he likes bland, he loves football but she likes reading. Still, it doesn't matter because he cares for her and she adores him.
When your partner won't leave you alone about that silly blackhead that popped out of nowhere.
When they hog the entire bed and make you suffer every night. But somewhere in the middle of the night, you find them hugging your back. Nothing else matters then. Nothing.
From pumpkin carvings to Thanksgiving dinners, from attending Independence Day parades to going for Black Friday shopping, you do everything together. And your festivals become a lot more fun!
When tough times go by like a breeze just because you know you have someone to hold hands with.
There is something about the stars which makes you want to leave everything and go stargazing. It automatically gets hundred times better when you're with them.
