Andrew Hou, a Canadian-born Chinese man, was never the best at expressing his feelings and love.

This was especially true when he first starting dating his now-wife, Kate.

It was made even harder as he spoke Chinese and she spoke Korean. So he began to draw little doodles for her to express his feelings.

He started drawing the story of their love in 2010 and hasnt stopped drawing since.

His drawings were so adorable that Kate couldnt help but fall deeper and deeper in love with him.

Korean not being my native tongue didn’t help either so making silly, sappy doodles was my workaround for the problem.

“[Kate] was busy with school and I was busy with work, so we didn’t have a lot of time to meet up or even talk on the phone. So during work, I’d pretend to be ‘working’ and create these tiny doodles and send it to her on her cellphone.”

So in love that when he finally asked her to marry him, she immediately said YES!

He continued to make doodles for his wife, sharing memories all their best (and sometimes worst) moments.

“I often go back and read the early episodes myself as a constant reminder of the emotions and happy thoughts behind the drawings.”

He draws anything she does that inspires him, always with the theme of true love.

Andrew still doodles stories about his wife Kate, their dog, and their life together.

No matter where they are, or how far apart they may seem, the drawings stand as a testament to their story.
