    Yesterday I watched a couple of the Goodful videos for the first time. And I was instantly like, aww those two are so cute, if they're not dating, then they should be. And then today I see this as a suggested video. Yeah, you two had heat coming off you that could be felt a mile away. Go on with this gorgeous love, it warms my heart.
