It's the First Loves Blogfest! The idea is to share four of our first loves. First movie, song or artist, book and person. Check out the others here. Thanks for hosting, Alex!
First Movie: The Never Ending Story. I loved the idea of hiding out and spending the whole day getting lost in a story. That he gets to then be part of the story was just too awesome. And I totally wanted my own luck dragon!
First Song: I remember as a kid my mom had a CD called Girl Groups of the Sixties. It was filled with songs like Soldier Boy and Johnny Angel. I remember dancing to those songs in the living room with my little sisters. Coincidentally, I married a Marine and named my first son Johnny. . .
First Book: The first book I remember not being able to put down was A Dog Called Kitty. The funny thing is, I don't really remember the story any more, but I do remember the pain of having to put it down when my mom made me come eat my dinner.
First Person: My high school sweetheart. I was shy, he was the class clown, opposites attract and all that. We had a lot of fun together. It ended badly, as most first loves do, but I still think he was a great first love to have. He was very sweet.
I am looking forward to seeing everyone else's first loves. It will be a nice way to kick off a very busy week for me. My husband is having knee surgery tomorrow, (he's not nervous but I kind of am.) Then the high school play that I am directing is this Friday and Saturday. The show is great and the kids are awesome. It's going to be a ton of fun, but we still have a lot of work to do.
Have a great week everyone!
