Hooray for July! The month of fireworks, grill outs, beach trips, and, for today’s post’s purposes, all things red, white, and blue.
For July’s #SouthernDoin Challenge, we’re celebrating the colors of Old Glory by encouraging you to snap a beautiful red, white, and blue frame! The opportunities are going to be endless, we know: cherry pie with a gingham napkin, blue hydrangeas against a red barn, a red and white striped tee when you’re out on the lake, freshly-picked blueberries in a red basket – we can’t wait to see!
Two instagrams of mine from last July that would have qualified! Yep, that’s red velvet ice cream :)
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. We’re pretty informal around here, so 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.) Most months we pick a Doin’ prompt and post it here — something to encourage y’all to go, do, make, explore, discover, and love under the banner 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.
Are you in? Sound off in the comments! And happy Doin’!
