American Love Stories

Tanya and James Fight

Last night we were all hanging out at Mike’s house when all the sudden 
( derepente)Tanya and James got in a fight. They were yelling at each other so loud it was crazy. It all started when James got a text from another girl. Tanya asked who the text was from, but James would not tell her. Later, when James was in the bathroom, Tanya started going through his phone and saw that the text James got was from another girl. 

When he got back from the bathroom Tanya started freaking out at him, saying that he should not even have other girls’ numbers on his phone. She totally caught James off guardand he did not really know what to say. They fought for like 20 minutes until finally James just got pissed and left. 

But today it sounds like Tanya and James are going to make up. They have been texting today, and apparently Tanya said she was sorry for overreacting. I think everything will be OK. Tanya was just being dramatic.

Dear John

hi guys this week I read the book dear John, is a book Iparticularly recommend reading before seeing the movie, excitingstory, especially recommended for those who love romance storyfirst love and love between father and son.
by: rosimary

An angry rebel, John dropped out of school and enlisted in the Army, not knowing what else to do with his life--until he meets the girl of his dreams, Savannah. Their mutual attraction quickly grows into the kind of love that leaves Savannah waiting for John to finish his tour of duty, and John wanting to settle down with the woman who captured his heart. But 9/11 changes everything. John feels it is his duty to re-enlist. And sadly, the long separation finds Savannah falling in love with someone else. "Dear John," the letter read...and with those two words, a heart was broken and two lives were changed forever. Returning home, John must come to grips with the fact that Savannah, now married, is still his true love--and face the hardest decision of his life.

Dear John, an amazing story.

I really enjoyed the book. I thought it was a sweet love story. I would read it again and again if I wouldn't cry every time. The plot was nice. Some parts you could see coming from miles away but other parts just surprised me like a surprise party. The characters, John Tyree and Savannah Lynn Curtis, were described very well. I felt that if I saw them walking on a sidewalk somewhere I would know exactly who they were. I love romance stories so I loved this book. Nicholas Sparks' is a wonderful writer. I could feel the love, hurt, and sadness they had for each other. I could see some parts so well it almost felt like I was there. Like the part when John's dad is in the hospital dying, it felt like I was there. I could see every expression on everyone's faces by the way Nicholas described their emotions or their personality. I liked the setting because it's so realistic. This story could actually happen in real life. A guy and a girl can fall in love then the guy can be called to go to the war, then when he comes back and everything changes. The beach was a good place for them to meet because they learned a lot about each other there, like they both are good surfers and John knew the most unique restaurants. My opinion of the book is everyone that likes romance novels should read this. It's my favorite book. Over all I really loved this book. It was romantic, heart breaking, and realistic. It was one of the best books I've ever read.

Memorable lines:
“ … I knew that I could live to be a hundred and visit every country in the world, but nothing would ever compare to that single moment when I first kissed the girl of my dreams and knew that my love would last forever.”
“… love meant that you care for another person’s happiness more than your own, no matter how painful the choices you face might be.”

Happy Valentine's Day,Poems for Love

All I Really Need is You

All I really need is you.
don't care for sleek and fancy jets
and Italian sport cars,
the hollywood glitterati and movie stars
vacations at world class resorts and spas.

All I really need is you.

I can take or leave sailing to

exotic destinations on luxurious yachts,
cocktails with the jet set and super smart.

All I really need is you.

I have no desire to own a masterpiece

or any other great work of art,

purchased from auction houses bid and sold, exquisite pieces of jewelry
dripping with diamonds and gold.

All I really need is you.

I'm not interested in a chalet

nestled on a swiss ski resort,
or sailing on a luxury liner
to every foreign port,
that would be my last resort.

All I really need is you.

Soaking up the sun is not my idea of fun,
if truth be told,
the south pacific islands leave me cold,
diving for sunken caribbean treasures,
i'm not so bold.
For I have my pirate's bounty right here at home,
and I have no need to ever roam.

All I really need is you.

Valentine's Day

Hi guys going to update the blog and wish you a happy Valentine's Day.

(Oi galera passando para atualizar o blog e desejar um feliz dia dos namorados.)

The word "Valentine" has two meanings. It can imply a card sent or given to a sweetheart) on Saint Valentine's Day. It can also indicate any particular person, especially a sweetheart, chosen to receive a greeting on Saint Valentine's Day.

Both implications of the word come from a time long long ago. At a turbulent period of Roman History, when a crumbling Roman empire was facing hostilities from all sides, the country needed valiant soldiers who would be ruthless and able to lay down their lives for the cause of the motherland. Emperor Claudius II felt that marriage was becoming a serious impediment in building a strong national defence as married soldiers felt disinclined to stay away from home for a long time. He issued an edict forbidding marriage to assure quality soldiers. But a kindly priest Valentine came to the rescue of young Romans and secretly married them off. But this good time was not long to last for Claudius II soon got wind of Valentine's actions and had him arrested. Though initially impressed by Valentine's personality and courage, the emperor tried to force his order on him and is even said to have attempted to convert him.
When Valentine refused to obey both royal orders, the incensed emperor ordered his execution.

While awaiting his sentence in prison, Valentine is believed to have restored the sight of the jailor's daughter with his reported mystical powers. This earned him the friendship of the jailor Asterius as well as his daughter. A little time before his death, Valentine is said to have asked for a pen and paper from his jailor, and wrote afarewell message to Asterius' daughter signing it as "From Your Valentine," a phrase that lived ever after.

The Roman Empire was soon to fall, and its end brought everything back to normalcy. The people never forgot Valentine and they created a holiday in memory of their loving priest. Along with "Valentine's Day", the tradition of sending personal messages also gained popularity among love birds and such handwritten notes of love came to be known as "Valentine", a name drawn from the signature of Valentine's last letter to Asterius' daughter.

The first modern valentines reportedly became popular from the early 15th century. Following his defeat in the battle of Agincourt, the young French Duke of Orleans was captured and confined in the Tower of London for many years. During his captivity, he wrote many poems to his wife. About sixty of these remain and have been preserved among the royal papers in the British Museum.

When printers came in use, a limited number of cards with verses and sketches began to be produced. However, these were smaller and costlier than the handmade cards which were oversized but economical and elaborate.

By the 18th century, it became a common practice in England to exchange hand-made cards on Valentine's Day. People began to create valentine cards for their sweethearts by themselves out of lace or ribbons, and featuring cupids and hearts.

Gradually, the American colonies took on the tradition. But it only during the 1840s that Valentine's Day greeting cards began to be commercially produced in the U.S. The first American Valentine's Day greetingcards were created by Esther A. Howlanda Mount Holyoke, a graduate and native of Worcester. Mass. Regarded as the "Mother of the Valentine", Howland made elaborate "Valentine" cards with real lace, ribbons and colorful pictures known as "scrap". It was only with Howland's mass production of the Valentine cards that the custom gained popularity in the United States.

With a reduction in postal rates in the early 19th century, the production of Valentines got a greater thrust. It also helped establish the custom of sending anonymous messages or cards to those one admired.

In the 21st century, Valentine's Day has become one of the major holidays in the world, especially in the U.S. where it has spawned a multimillion dollar greeting card industry. As per a survey by the Greeting CardAssociation, 25% of all cards sent each year in the U.S. are "Valentine"s. This is another evidence of the ever increasing popularity of the "Valentines", that are seen by many as an extension of the old love letters.

A message of love, that is what the "Valentine" is. Try sending one to your special someone on this Valentine'sDay
