2018 was a rollercoaster of a year. From high profile breakups to public celebrity meltdowns, equality movements to landmark political statements, a royal wedding, an entire Olympics season– you get it. 2018 was a lot, and it wasn’t always the most uplifting.
The year certainly had its ups and downs, but as we get ready to start fresh in 2019, it’s important to remember all the good that’s happened since last New Year’s Eve. Lucky for us, a lot of pretty heartwarming moments will live on forever, on Twitter.
It’s been a rough year– these wholesome tweets were the bright spots.

Okay, this Grandpa that’s excited for lunch with his granddaughter might be even cuter.Remember when you were a kid, and you woke up early on Christmas morning? This grandad is that excited for his lunch date. No way, I’m not crying, someone must be cutting onions somewhere.

The force is obviously strong with these two unapologetically nerdy soul mates.This is arguably the cutest date anyone has ever been on. Also, I have no idea how this could possibly be relevant to any physics lesson, and I do not care.
These adorable parents pretty much single handedly proved the existence of eternal love.Everyone deserves the kind of partner who will gas you up for absolutely no reason. These two gave us hope that we might someday find our own chopstick hype man.
Even when they're fully roasting us, parents can be pretty great.
