I am so grateful for all the lovely comments I received on my post yesterday – it took me completely by surprise and I was very humbled ♥
Further to yesterday’s post I was thinking today about how it really is the small and seemingly insignificant moments that we will look back on and treasure.
I found the most delightful book recently – it was the story of a couples romance told in comic strip style – called Soppy: A Love Story.
It’s so beautifully charming and engaging in it’s simplicity.
And it’s also very thought provoking. It’s full of the small moments that make up most relationships, but combined they are what gives the relationship it’s “story”.
It made me so badly want to document my own relationship this way. And if I could draw I would, but alas I cannot 😀
But if I could, I would draw in pictures my favourite ‘ordinary’ moments:
Sharing our favourite takeout – both of us swatting our 2 cats off the kitchen table between mouthfuls.
Having animated conversations about great white sharks (a passion of both of ours).
Laughing together over the hilarious things my 10yo comes out with:
Me: “Put your pants on!”
1oyo “But I can’t find them! I’ve lost them!!”
“Oh here they are, on the bookcase”
Trying in vain to sleep while our cats fight on top of us at 2am.
Me standing talking to Mr ISFS every night as he has his shower – sharing our days, and deep meaningful conversations.
It’s every one of these small moments that I will treasure forever, as they honour the story of ‘us’ ♥
