At the beginning of a relationship, you were probably excited to spend as much time together as you could. You wanted to go out dancing, you wanted to taste the seasons together, and between all this, you figured what the flavor of your relationship was. When you knew that you have found the person of your dreams, you probably wanted to spend all your time with them. And slowly, the days spent at home with them turned into weeks, months, and years.
When you have been together for a while, the pace slows down and the routine sets in. However, people find joy in those everyday moments too. Instead of longing for the wild nights of the 20s with strangers and acquaintances, you probably enjoy the quieter evenings with your loved ones. The number one person you want to spend time with is most likely your spouse or partner.
Long-term relationships can be equally fun and the beauty of it lies in the small moments. Every moment of life is precious and waiting for the bigger and more arresting moments could prove disheartening. Moreover, they may be far and few in-between. Instead, the joys of a long-term relationship lie in cherishing each other, every single day.
Artist Amanda Oleander has captured those moments beautifully in her illustrations. Here are 12 that will warm your heart:
