Chewing gum isn’t commonly associated with romance, with most of us just tossing the wrappers aside when we’re done. However, this video proves that love can help use even the most mundane of items in a creative fashion.
Juan first met Sarah outside her locker in high school. She offered him a stick of gum as a gesture of thanks when he helped pick up some books and papers she had dropped. The couple started a relationship, and she got into the habit of offering him gum even at important events such as at their prom.
Unbeknownst to her, Juan saved the gum wrappers and drew sketches showing key moments for them as a couple on the reverse side.
Many years and events later, Juan put together a miniature gallery of his drawings and then added a final sketch that depicted him proposing marriage. With tears in her eyes, Sarah turned around to see her boyfriend waiting with a ring.
Sometimes it really is the little details that matter the most in the long run when you are in love. Everyday items have enormous power to convey deep emotions when they are put to good use.
