First Love

So, after reading this inspirational post from Claire, which was inspired by this and this, I've decided to share a little story about my first love. I was an impressional 12, or maybe 13, year old girl when this heartthrob captured me. Yes, I'm talking about Beck. I remember watching the video for Loser for the very first time on MTV after school and thinking "This is cool, who's this guy?" Then, the end of the video, dreamboat Beck goes walking in slow motion across the beach in a wetsuit. My heart stood still. I knew at that very instant that this man was the love of my life. Never mind the fact that I've never met him and the love is only reciprocated in my dreams. Beck is and always will be my first love. So, who's your first love?

Currently I am:
loving the music of St.Vincent
designing a mediterranean garden for my advanced landscape design class
tediously drawing this foxglove (Digitalis purpurea) being pollinated by a bumblebee with prismacolors

* Photo found during random search for foxglove on Flickr and after almost 10 minutes of unsuccessfully trying to find the picture again to credit the photographer...I gave up.
