Falling in love can be hard, but falling out of love can be harder. That’s why 19-year-old Ana Stanowick from the University of Arkansas was so nervous for her recently divorced mother starting a new relationship. Ana soon realized that she didn’t have to worry once she saw her mom’s boyfriend’s act of love.
my dad used to get so mad every time my mom would come home w a new coffee mug (she likes to collect them) and her new bf literally built her a wall to display her collection. this is why we don’t settle for loser boys, ladies!!!!! pic.twitter.com/BZQmfcVHuC— Ana Stanowick (@AnaStanowick_) June 13, 2019
Her mom is an avid coffee mug collector, something that used to bother her ex-husband. Once her boyfriend of three years moved in, he wasted no time giving the collection the home it deserved. Though it started as a frog collection, it quickly grew to over 51 fun mugs!
Literally was just gonna say I'll send her a Harry Potter mug but she's got it covered pic.twitter.com/N1W1IXs06e— Nicole (@omygoditsnicole) June 13, 2019
Others started to share stories of how their parents found a better relationship, just like Mama Stanowick.
I LOVE this. My dad used to literally never move from the couch and make my mom do everything for him. Her new boyfriend is constantly trying to help her and do things for her and she has no idea what to with herself! It's so sweet to watch.— Leslie Dice (@LDice1019) June 13, 2019
Ana says “He had the idea to build the shelf as a surprise for her. She doesn’t have a favorite [mug], but each of them have sentimental value and she can name the time, place, and who gave her each mug.” This is a beautiful story about finding someone who makes you happy, or at the very least, makes you a mug wall.
