Samantha’s First Kiss – Valentines

Samantha’s First Kiss – Valentines:

It’s Valentines! The time of year when love is in the air. When chocolates, jewelry and stuffed teddy bears are plentiful. This year on the new Love, Teacup Kisses blog I wanted to share an old image. I did this drawing in 2014 during Inktober. It was the first year I did inktober and the year that made me love it.

I focused many of the drawings around a witch character named Samantha. Inktober that year showcased her child hood, her teenage years, her family and her adulthood. This particular drawing was Samantha’s first kiss. Their is something so charming about ones first kiss. The awkward attempt at romance from two totally unaware young individuals. Childhood romance being explored with a single kiss is exciting.

Often when your first kiss is experience at a young age you are unaware of what to expect. Bashful and shy towards the other person. A quick peck is all you can think to do. All you are willing to do. It’s perfect in it’s imperfections. Something so quick somehow means so much.

My First Kiss:

When I was in first or second grade I had a crush on this kid Skyler. We didn’t interact much but my friends new that I thought he was so dreamy. One day, our friends got the bright idea to bring us together on the playground. His friends egged him on to kiss me, and my friends egged me on to kiss him back. They pushed us towards each other and we resisted.

I secretly hoped that he would do it, but fought back to hide my desire. Our friends being there definitely made it awkward. Eventually the bell rang and we were saved. Our friends took off to their class rooms but we stayed behind momentarily. I think the world stopped for a second, and then he leaned in and kissed me.

I can’t remember if it was on the lips or the cheek, but I remembered that it was perfect. A moment I will never forget.

This Year:

This year I am single, no crushes or love interests to spend the holiday with. Most of the time I’m happy to be single, prefer it even. But romantic holidays can leave me wanting. So this year I hope to spend the holiday cozy in a bubble bath reading a good book and falling in love with life. I hope you have a wonderful Valentines day and let me know in the comments bellow what you’re doing.


Until Next time,

Tatyana Vogt
