16 Illustrations That Show ‘Little Things’ Are The Most Wonderful

When it comes to relationships, it’s all about the little things. Sure, it’s nice for your partner to make a grand gesture every once in a while, but sometimes we take the smaller gestures for granted. As long as you are together and having fun, that should be the only thing that matters.Artist Pascal Champion has a gift for capturing those tiny but valuable moments in a relationship.

Whether it’s dining in candlelight in the comfort of your home, going for bike rides in the park, or having pillow fights, don’t let the little things pass you by. Cherishing those tiny moments will make for a happy and healthy relationship.

1. Walking in the rain

Who doesn’t want to feel like they’re part of The Notebook? A brisk walk in the rain feels romantic, like you’re part of a movie.

2. Friendly competition

Cards, board games, chess, you play it all together. The stakes are even higher when you make a little wager. Loser makes dinner!

3. Hanging around the house

You could be doing absolutely nothing and still not feel bored. Just being in each other’s company puts a smile on your face. One of the best indicators of a loving relationship is when silence feels peaceful instead of awkward.

4. Walking along the beach

What’s more romantic than going for a walk around the beach? Going for a walk along the beach at night! Kick off your shoes and take in the beautiful scenery.

5. Morning coffee

There’s nothing more refreshing than waking up in the morning and having a relaxing cup of java to start the day. What’s even better? Enjoying that coffee with your significant other.

6. Sitting at the cafe

Something about sitting in a cafe just feels romantic. Maybe it’s the aroma of baked goods and coffee, or the Parisian feel. Whatever the reason is, it’s fun to be able to share it with your significant other.

7. Walking in the snow

It gives you an excuse to hold each other tight to brave the cold. Watching how the falling snow is lit up by streetlights really sets the mood and makes the setting feel more romantic. You’ll completely forget about the fact that you’re freezing cold.

8. Snowball fights

The only thing more fun than going for a walk in the snow is playing in the snow! You’re never too old for a good ol’ snowball fight. When you’re done bludgeoning each other with crystallized water, make a snowman with your other half.

9. Catching each other off guard

A playful nudge or love tap shows how comfortable you are with each other. When you keep each other on your toes, it makes the relationship more fun. Always try to keep them guessing.

10. Feeling like the only people in the room

Despite the crowded hustle and bustle of everyday life, you only have eyes for the one you’re with. Those moments where everything and everyone else melts away, except for the person you’re with, are moments that should be cherished.

11. Picnics

There’s no better way to spend a summer afternoon than on a blanket in the park with your soulmate. If you’re feeling fancy, bring some wine and cheese. Fine dining doesn’t have to take place at a fancy restaurant.

12. Exercising together

Couples who work out together stay together. The only thing more satisfying than getting in shape and feeling happy is getting to do it with your partner. Going for a jog or a bike ride together can make your bond even stronger.

13. Fancy dinners at home

You don’t have to go out and spend lots of money for date nights. Get dressed up and have candlelit dinner in the comfort of your own home for the same romantic feel. Who cares if your main course is Kraft Dinner? You’re together and that’s all that matters.

14. Cooking together

Even if that requires you offering moral support as he does all the work, it’s still fun. Take turns choosing recipes and trying new dishes. Cooking will no longer seem like a task, but rather something you enjoy doing together.

15. Playing video games together.

You may not have any idea how to play Call Of Duty, but the important thing is that you get to spend time with him. It’s okay if he’s better than you at one thing.

16. Pillow fights

You can be your funny, goofy selves around each other. You love to joke around and let your silly side loose every once in a while. It’s one of the many things that you love about each other.
