Don’t you ever wish that your love story would be that of a fairytale, filled with magic and happy endings? That with a snap of a finger, everything would fall into place and be right at the exact moment when you felt surreal with the person you were meant to be with? We all wish for a love where everything falls right into place, where all the complications and detours are absent. We dream for the kind of love that doesn’t take long to be finally recognized. But as humans, living in the real world outside of a storybook, we sometimes tend to overanalyze and overthink things that we don’t realize that what we are looking for is right in front of us.

Luckily, for Raymond and Ranille, they believed that once you find a common ground, and that common ground is strong enough to keep the two of you together—that’s it, it’s a done deal! May their love remind us that sometimes, we don’t need to complicate things to feel like we truly deserve them. Sometimes, you just have to grab the opportunity that you are given.


It often takes ages before you find someone you can be completely sure is right for you. But sometimes, when you’re lucky – when you’re really, really lucky – it only takes a snap of a finger before you completely realize that the good and perfect gift from God is already right in front of you.
