Enjoying a weekend lazily


    Standing in the rain under the same umbrella



      Hugging after a long day


        Pillow fights before sleep


          Comforting each other during hard times



            Enjoying sunshine together


              Just lying on the sofa


                Playing around the city



                  Cooking fun


                    Falling asleep together


                      Having the first meal of the day together


                        Enjoying the same music


                          Sudden kisses throughout the day


                            Feeding each other


                              Trying new things


                                Having fun at home when it’s raining outside



                                  Being yourself comfortably


                                    Reunion after some days of waiting


                                      Dining out can be great happiness too


                                        Having your kids


                                          Growing old with each other

                                            Sometimes it’s easier to focus on what we don’t have, rather than what we do have. It’s important to take time out and remember all of the things to be thankful for that many of us take for granted.
