February, the month of love, was the perfect time to kick off our Monthly #SouthernDoin challenges. And y’all rose to the occasion! Just a few of our favorite sweet surprise gestures that you kind ladies shared via our hashtag…
Erin made heart-shaped strawberry biscuits for her husband on Valentine’s Day; McKenzie made delicious-looking pancakes for her sweetie; Sam left a sweet note on her fiance’s car when he was having a bad day; and Kristin sent a surprise package to The Birthday Party Project in honor of my birthday!
All together now: awwwww!
In case you’re not familiar with the concept of a Southern Doin’, I’ll recap for ya: A Southern Doin’ is any sort of a Southern activity. There’s no official panel of judges that decides whether or not something is Southern; you get to decide for yourself whether your Doin’ falls under the spirit of the South! We came up with Southern Doin’s because even in the midst of V5 craziness, we didn’t want to forget to get outside our office and remember all of the things we love about the South. (And there are oh so many things.)
We’re ratcheting things up a notch this year with our Southern Doin’ monthly challenges. Each month we’ll pick a Doin’ prompt and post it here — something to encourage y’all to go, do, make, explore, discover, and love in the spirit of the South and the Sweet Tea Society.
We’ll be Doin’ right alongside you, and we’ll all try to remember and use the #southerndoin hashtag, alrighty? Then, we’ll come back here and post a little recap on the blog of our favorite tweeted, instagrammed, or Facebooked Doin’s before we post the next month’s challenge.
But enough explanation — time for the challenge! The Southern Weddings office has been all abuzz over the impending arrival of spring, so for March’s #SouthernDoin Challenge, snap a photo of a sign of springtime in the South! Maybe you’ll spot daffodils or camellias on your after-work walk. Maybe you’ll sit outside for the first time this year at your favorite Southern eatery. Maybe you’ll spy some adorable baby farm animals (you know we’d love that one!). Whatever it is, we’d love for you to share it with us! We’ll be sharing our favorites next month right here on the blog.
Are you in? Sound off in the comments! And happy Doin’!
