ell. o. vee. ee.

Though some call it corny and unrealistic, and I admittedly have been a hater myself, there is something about this Valentines Day that made me smile. It wasn’t particularly special, I didn’t recieve any outrageous gifts nor give any, there was nothing I wanted or expected. Instead I just smiled and enjoyed a day where people can celebrate love.

I decided to dedicate this post to love, to people who embrace it, live it and love to love!

Having bilingual troubles? Check out ‘I love you x 100’ – A fun little vid of people from all over the world saying ‘I love you’ in 100 different languages.

The love story that has stuck with me the most is probably the legend of “Tristan and Isolde”, an old welsh court tale of a knight who falls hopelessly in love with his Kings betrothed.

Interestingly enough I have found a book which is a modern day telling of this romance.

Izzy is a young witch who is currently dating the popular high school football captain Mark King. Mistakenly taking a love potion she made for her best friend, Izzy then falls hopelessly in love with Tristan, the new guy at school. Trouble ensues.

Though probably not as good as the original (as if they ever are), for those who can’t stomach the ye olde english, it may be a good place to start.

And to finish, a well known verse of the good book,  1 Corinthians 13: 4-7 on ell.o.vee.ee.

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
