I love starting the week with a bloghop! :D The First Loves Blogfest was created by the amazing Alex J. Cavanaugh, and he wants us to confess our first movie,song/band, book and person loves! This was a fun little trip down memory lane, so, here are my first loves!
Movie: I was very young when I watched Dirty Dancing for the first time, but right away, I fell in love. I loved the music and the dancing, and even though I didn't fully understand everything that happened in the film, I couldn't get enough of it. Patrick Swayze is probably the reason my standards are so high when it comes to men!
Music: I've always been a huge music fan, and there were many bands I loved when I was growing up, but the one I was most crazy about was Boyzone. I was infatuated with Stephen Gately - I genuinely believed I would marry him one day. Too bad he turned out to be gay lol. When he died a few years ago, it was the first time I ever felt the need to grieve for a celebrity. He was such a sweetheart. The band reformed just before he died, and Stephen had already recorded the vocals for Gave It All Away. The rest of the band made the video as a tribute to him, and it saw them trying to write letters to him, and also has clips of Stephen with the band mixed in. The emotion is so genuine and beautiful, you can't help but be touched by it.
Book: The first books I remember loving were The Faraway Tree books by Enid Blyton. They were so wonderfully imaginative, and it fascinated me to see which lands would be at the top of the tree the next time the characters climbed up!
Person: Ha, this question threw me a bit, because I was always boy crazy when I was younger! I had many crushes. Many, many crushes! I think my first love happened when I was 13, when I fell for an entertainer at a holiday camp. :D
Thanks Alex, for hosting this great hop! I will be checking out the other posts a little later! :D
