First Loves Blogfest!

 Four loves, one blogfest! 
Alex had another great idea, it's the First Loves Blogfest.  The idea is to post about your first movie, first song/band, first book and first person you loved.  If you want to join the fun, head on over to his blog and enter the linky list today!


I was only five when it first released, but I was instantly hooked on the world of the Jedi.  I even tried to write out all the dialogue once so my family and I could produce our own version of the movie.  Even though I don't write sci-fi, Star Wars inspired me more than any other story to create new worlds and adventures as a writer.   It's still one of my top favorite movies.


There was something about their music that struck a chord within me when I was in high school and college.  Their lyrics seemed to fit what I was experiencing at the time and they were the first band I ever went to see in concert.  While I still like their music, my playlist nowadays includes a huge variety of artists.


I was enchanted as if I'd been touched by Merlin's magic.  I read and re-read this book so many times that the paperback cover came off.  The book still sits on my shelf waiting for me to pick it up once again.  Not only was the story itself magical but Howard Pyle's illustrations at the beginning of every chapter were bewitching, drawing me further into the ancient realm of knights and chivalry.



My first and only true love.  I don't know how I got so lucky to find him.  He's an inspiration to me in his quest for learning and living life.  He supports me in all my endeavors and has opened my eyes to new possibilities.  It's been a fun 18 years!! :)  Can't wait to see what the next 20 years will bring.  

Have a great Monday and don't forget to go check out all the other First Loves.

Kathy :)

Roxette is great! I think I need to Youtube some of their music now. ;)

McKenzie McCann said...

I always feel like there's something I'm missing about Star Wars. So many people rave about it, but I don't get it, and I feel like I should. :/

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Star Wars almost made my list! However, my wife was indeed my first love.
Thanks for participating in my blogfest.

Andrea Teagan said...

Great firsts. I love Arthurian legends too. They are eternal classics :)

I now have "Listen to Your Heart" stuck in my head. Love!

Hi Kathy. I can relate to all your firsts, even your first love. Great to see there's quite a few of us whose husband is our first and only love.

Sorry I'm late.
Another Star Wars choice! I'm so sad I didn't pick this one!
I chose my husband too!
Thanks for sharing with us.
