What is the most powerful symbol of romance?
I think it's the smaller every day things. They're the subtle things that others might overlook but it gives you that little swell of love. The sleepy forehead kiss in the morning, the wordless hug from behind while you are multitasking, the thoughtful coffee or snack you pick up for each other without thinking twice.
What would be your dream romantic gesture?
A surprise proposal at a quiet spot we both know and love, nothing over dramatic with heaps of fanfare, just something simple and tender.
Share a love story.
I had a hardened heart and wasn't hopeful I'd find my other half, because what are the odds that with all the people on this planet, the one for me would show up at the right time and place? But falling in love was the most surprising, terrifying, and transformative thing I have ever done. I learned to love myself more when I saw how much he loved me, and realised things I had unknowingly taken for granted. The excitement builds more and more each day when we talk about all the things we'd like to do on our life long adventure together. At my very core I know I am safe, appreciated and adored by him, and I am so lucky.
