A national day to celebrate a first love? Yes! September 18 is National First Love Day. I’m a bit confused on how this day started. After reading this PAGE, I’m even more confused. LOL.
Let’s do it up right with a hashtag– #NationalFirstLoveDay
Well, this is an updated post from last year. Last year I missed it on the correct date. The only reason I remembered it this year, was because yesterday this post suddenly got a lot of hits on my blog. Thanks for the reminder.
Speaking of National First Love Day…
My brand new book in a brand new series will be out in October 2016. If you like small towns, first love, and second chance romances, this one is for you. Don’t you love how I found a way to sneak in a couple lines of promo about my book? 🙂
Maybe you didn’t know this day even existed. I first heard on Twitter. Of course, Twitter. I get a lot of news there. Here is my Twitter link– FOLLOW
This site says this “day” was referenced 10,486 times on Twitter in 2015. I haven’t personally checked statistics.
Everyone who knows me, knows I stay in touch with my first love from back in the day when I was “sweet sixteen.” I know, right? It’s weird. My dad used to call him my Heart Throb. When my dad heard his car coming from two blocks away, he’d say, “Here comes your heart throb.” LOL Good O’ Dad.
Often on my way to shop, etc., I have to drive by his place of employment, where he has been employed all his adult life. (Oh, the memories of that place.) More than once, this song has played on my CD as I have driven by. It’s a CD I listen to often because I love the singer. I bought this for every electronic device I own–iTunes for my iPad, MP3 for my Kindle… You get the picture.
I wanted to play this song for you because maybe while you are thinking of your first love, your first love is thinking about you. The song is called Five. When I post a video I like to use the one from the Artist’s page, but I liked this one this time.
Have a great week.
Thanks for your visit.
Apparently when I posted this after the fact last year, it was the first day of autumn.
