To my dear friends: Your great “LOVE“ inspired me to create this book. I can’t do it without your love.
What is LOVE?
A Surprise on Valentine’s Day
“Love is like the wind, you can’t see it, but you can feel it.” — Nicolas Sparks, A Walk to Remember “LOVE“ is not only a word to your lovers. It can be meaningful in many ways. As Nicolas Sparks says, we can feel it but can’t see it. Therefore, I came up a project called “How Do You Represent Love”. This project provides people a great opportunity to show love. Love to yourself, love to your girlfriend and boyfriend, love to your wife and husband, love to your mom and dad, love to friends and colleagues, love to the young and the old, love to the world, also, love to your puppy. I collected 25 great “LOVE” from my families and friends. Their photos and words are so touching. I put them in three chapters. Hope this book will bring you beautiful LOVE! 5

Jay Zhang: You are my sunshine that brings light and warmth to my heart. I will spend my entire life revolving around you.
Jingyao Zhao: I know love comes and goes, but I believe the love within family is the one that could stay forever. When I am far away from home, I start to realize how much I miss it. My parents and I make video calls every week when Iâ€™m at night and theyâ€™re in the morning on the other side of the Earth. But, their smiling faces always make me feel like I am at home. The distance does not matter at all if we truly love each other, so I guess now I finally understand what real family means. FAMILY = Father And Mother I Love You.
Suhuai Song: Give me 24 hours, I will appear in front of you, give you my love!
Xingyi Su: I took this photo for my roommate and her boyfriend. Love is accompany. With the beautiful you, every where will be beautiful.
Jane Zou My friend gave me this bracelet as a Chirstmas gift. When I wear it, I feel troubles fly away.
LOVE is ACTION.
Guanjie Wang: Friendship is spending your youthful years with friends playing sports, drinking beer and boasting to each other.
Rongrong Wu: I fold 99 lucky stars to ask for a wish that my loved mother could live happily forever.
I wrote “Mom, I love you” for all 46 hearts which I folded by myself to express the LOVE for my mother’s 46th birthday.
Huan Zhou: Love is the taste. Love is someone that wants to cook the best dinner for you.
Tiantian Li: We took this photo on Chinese New Year. We are families in America. I love you all!!!
Sihyung Lee: This is how my mother shows her love - sending me food packages that I can eat overtime. She lives 6,000 miles away from where I live, but she would send side dishes that last long enough in a freezer. She thinks itâ€™s pitiful to have son who lives somewhere far, so she would like to do anything she can for me. Although there are not much thing she can actually do because of the distance, obviously, but I can see her love enough from the food she made.
Zhiying Duan: LOVE is when you want to kiss someone, LOVE is when you wear the most attractive perfume to meet someone, LOVE is when you want to be the best of yourself for someone.
A Surprise on Valentineâ€™s Day
Jialin Fu & Chi Ma
This is the wedding day, finally. You got me here, and hold my hand say forever. This is the fashion town, only you and me. You say the time was right to join our lives together in holy matrimony. This is the sunny day, a valentineâ€™s day. Your promises come to a ring put on my finger. You told me that life is a movie, we are the actor. There is no audience, but we give our all. I have long mediated on the meaning of love. Until the day, I met you, you show me what love is. I am not perfect, but I know that I am an apple in your eyes. You accept all my bad habits, and donâ€™t willing to change me. I never thought I married you, but I did. Thank you for coming to my life, and to be my husband until the life end.
Finally, I would like to show my gratitude to the people who have inspired and contributed to my project.
