25 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 love comic book, Soppy A Love Story, 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.


Sometimes, love can be found in the simplest things, like spending a blissful morning in the kitchen
