Happy February 1st everyone!
We hope you guys had a full and eventful January filled with met goals and resolutions. January seemed never ending for us. We found ourselves swamped with work, goals, resolutions etc. We have been trying to keep up with all of the fastballs life has been tossing our way. For the most part, January has already brought about some super exciting opportunities for us, and we can’t wait for what’s to come within the next year.
Ariana’s Birthday was on January 30th and we had tickets to go see Aladdin live at The Hollywood Pantages Theatre. Shout-out to Zoe (Hannah’s little sister) for getting us the tickets! It was the most glamorous musical we’d ever seen, which is hilarious considering its a Disney movie. We loved every second of it. For those of you who may not know, we love seeings plays and musicals. We live for them. This was the perfect ending to the first month of 2018, it really set the tone for the rest of the year.
Now that January is gone, we’re looking forward to the next big thing, Valentines Day!
As an early celebration of the romantic holiday, we thought we’d quickly share some of the ways we say “I love you” without actually saying the words. Don’t worry, we do say the words enough, but there are plenty of other ways to show or tell someone you love them without saying it.
Here are the ways we say “I Love You.”
#1: Pouring each other water.
So, this may sounds strange to some of you. You’re probably thinking “How are you saying i love you?” well, we use a Brita water pitcher. It filters the water within the pitcher so we don’t die? We don’t know guys that’s what they say. Back on track. We hate getting up to pour ourselves water, so when one of us decides to actually get up to get water, we pour water for the other as well so they don’t have to lift a finger. It’s small but significant, trust us.
#2: Cooking for each other.
So Ariana doesn’t cook. She hates it actually. Which leaves Hannah to do pretty much all of the cooking. Hannah is the nicest person so of course if I say “I’m hungry” she hops up out of whatever position she’s in to make me food. Her willingness to just make me happy in the simplest way says it all. And whenever I attempt to make her food aka, chicken nuggets and toaster waffles, well, that’s my way of saying “I Love You.”
#3: Turning the fans off in the morning.
We sleep with literally three fans at night. 1. we don’t want to hear ANYTHING. Like nothing. Not even ourselves breathing. 2. we like to sleep in the cold. So the room is pretty chilly when we have to actually leave the warm covers, and neither of us like that. So when one of us actually gets up first to turn all the fans off, its our way of saying “I love you enough to let you stay warm while I freeze my ass off”.
#4: Showing affection in little ways.
Showing each other affection in little ways is always a good way to tell someone you love them. For example, Ariana does this thing where she’ll come up to me while I’m cooking or working on the computer, and she’ll just rest her chin on my shoulder. It’s just a sweet way of her wanting to be next to me even when I’m doing something. I also make fun of her because she only does this when I’m doing something that requires arms… so I have to try not to shoulder her in the face while she’s resting her head.
#5: Turning the faucet to hot.
I have to wash my face with ice cold water, because it gets puffy in the morning and needs a shock to deflate. Ariana, on the other hand, can’t even brush her teeth with cold water. So after I wash my face in the morning, I try to turn the faucet to hot to let the water heat up in time for her to brush her teeth and wash her face.
Basically… it’s the little things, guys.
Showing love is an easy, everyday thing. It doesn’t need to be grand gestures all the time, or even medium gestures. For us, just thinking about one another and making the other’s day a little bit easier can say “I love you” even better than the actual words.
