Valentine's Day has passed and now you are heading towards other milestones such as birthdays, anniversaries and other special days that you wish you could be spending with your other half.

Well, thanks to today’s technology you can get creative with romance and keep that spark alive no matter where you are in the world.
Whether your relationship has always been a long-distance relationship or if you are about to go through your first period of distance, it is important to establish the expectations and boundaries of the relationship from the very beginning.

Also, in the future, when my husband teaches our children Portuguese, I want to be involved in their learning process of both English and Portuguese.
