This candid photo is making the rounds. I know this version has been cropped and in the original he has his arm around an exceptionally lucky lady, but I saw it first as the cropped version, and couldn’t help but speculate about what caused such a look of genuine happiness and warmth on Richard Armitage’s features.
He’s fully engaged, and there is just a light in his eyes that I find overwhelmingly charming and charismatic. I also like his slightly flushed cheeks. And the smile-lines around his eyes.
He looks entirely cuddle-worthy, yet at the same time he’s just sort of effortlessly sexy, and I get the feeling that no matter what words might come out his mouth next, I’d likely agree whole-heartedly…
How about a hug? Oh, gladly!
Is there a decent bottle of red on hand? What kind of question is that?
Hand over the chocolate now. All of it. Anything for you, Richard!
Would you mind darning my socks later this evening? Let me just… go and google that!
Did you know I forgot to make those phone calls? You know I don’t call people, but… maybe this once.
May I have your entire lefse stash? Um. Oh, geez. I can’t… I don’t… well, all right.
You’ll notice I kept that list pretty G-rated. Not that other requests didn’t pop into my mind, but I’ll just keep those to myself.
Yes, that look just slays me. It also reminds me a lot of my Hubby, who has a similar way of looking at me when he either wants something, or is just fully content, affectionate and into the moment. Don’t know why, but when I first saw the photo above, it reminded me of a photo taken about 7 years ago, when my Young Love was an infant.
Kind of interesting when you think that both men have arms around someone they obviously care for in these photos.
I think again, it’s the light in the eyes, with those little crinkles showing and a smiling face exuding warmth.
This type of look will get me. Every time.
