Philippa Rice is a multi-talented artist who creates simple but beautiful comics about the everyday joys of living with someone you love. The title of her comic book, Soppy, is unapologetically fitting!
Rice forgoes the usual stuff like hearts and roses, going instead for the simple ways we share the love with our significant others – be it our morning routines, a hug, and a snuggle, or finishing the day in each others’ arms.

Sometimes, love can be found in the simplest things, like spending a blissful morning in the kitchen
You can be in the same room without having to do Everything together
It is hugging each other accidentally while sleeping
Even the most mundane tasks are more fun when you do them together
Even shopping for food can be exciting
True love means putting Everything aside to hug
The biggest dilemma is often what to eat for dinner
Even if you’re feeling a bit blue, there’s always someone that will hold your hand
Love is about the little things
Happiness is when both of you read in bed after an exceptionally tiring day.
Building IKEA furniture is like playing with LEGO when it’s just the two of you.
Sometimes, you have to ask hard questions.
Cooking together often becomes the most challenging and the most fun task
Even the tiniest problems matter to your loved one
It’s having those long talks in bed about Everything and anything
It’s when you know your favorite cuddling positions
It’s having a favorite cafe where only you two matter
The cold autumn wind can’t touch you because your heart always stays warm
Love means knowing when you need to say sorry
Nothing is more comfortable than falling asleep on your loved one’s lap.
It is about exploring new things, even if it’s just your neighborhood park
It’s knowing that it’s not always rainbows and butterflies; it’s the compromise that moves us along
As long as both of you are headed the same way…
… Everything will be just fine
