Sir Alex…you are evil and awesome at the very same time.
Thanks for coming up with a great and very challenging First Loves Blogfest!
The first movie that I fell in love with was the 1992 film The Last of the Mohicans.
I mean, I did love lots of other movies before that, cause I’m old, but, this is the first one I left the theater, bought another ticket, and went right back in for.
And, it wasn’t just Daniel Day-Lewis and his hard to hide Irish accent that hooked me.
It was the whole package. The scenery. The soundtrack. The romances. The epic-ness. It’s what a lot of movies strive for but most can’t achieve.
I’m a lucky girl when it comes to music. Growing up we listened to everything across the board. Really. Listened, played and sang. To this day, in my own home, we listen to music of all genres. To pick a specific song or a band as my first love? Not easy. If I think back to the first music that I played repetitively on my own it would be my Aunt’s hand-me-down, cause I’m not that old, 45’s of The Beatles. After that probably my parent’s cassette tapes of Queen.
Books. Love them. I truly do. I don’t often re-read them which is odd because I do watch the same movies over and over again. One book that I have read more than once and will read again…Jurassic Park by Michael Crichton. Ignore the movie. Read the book. It’s a thrill ride. Just thinking about it makes me want to read it again. Makes me miss Mr. Crichton too.
This one…easy. I thought I had loved others…until I met my husband, Chris.
15 years together in July. 11 years married in July. I can’t believe it took me so long to find him but now I can’t imagine a day without him.
How about you guys? Got any firsts you want to share?
