In honor of the recent Valentine's Day, I thought I'd write a little post about kissing. Most of us like to do it, we hope our kids don't start doing it too early, we prefer not to do it before teeth are brushed in the morning...
Do you remember your first kiss? The who, when and where? Or would you prefer to forget?
I will confess to you...I was one of the proverbial "sweet sixteen and never been kissed" girls in this world and it was mortifying. Apparently all the guys in my school thought I was a great friend, which was always heartbreaking. To this day I wonder if those idiots knew what they were missing, because dang it, I think I'm a great catch!!
I remember in 2nd grade I had a boyfriend-Charlie Britain. I remember exchanging notes around my birthday on if he was going to give me a kiss for my birthday or not. He didn't. And apparently I didn't date much after that...lol.
My first kiss was Jesse. At church camp. The summer before my...senior year (?) of high school. Jesse was my camp boyfriend. Tuesday night they took us all up on a big hill for stargazing. You shared a pillow and stargazed with your camp sweetie if you had one. Great environment for a church camp--haha. So I got my first kiss that night. Jesse and I dated again the next summer, and actually into my first semester of college. We exchange emails on occasion to this day, he's in the army and in Iraq. Camp friends are always friends, even when it's a silly camp boyfriend.
I kissed many frogs after that first kiss with Jesse until I finally found my prince....Matt and I didn't share our first kiss until our second date. I wanted a kiss that first date but he says he was being a gentleman and didn't want to rush anything!
So how about you? Do you remember your first kiss? In honor of all things sweet and sappy, post a comment for a chance to win a goodie bag of my favorite chocolate candies...snickers...MM's and who knows what else!
