Summer Love Round-Up

by in Main on

While it can be sad to bid farewell to summer (how on earth is Labor Day weekend already here?), it feels good to know that we made the most of the season, and just a peek at our summer hashtag on Instagram proves that y’all did the same! We truly loved revisiting childhood adventures and making new memories with each of you this summer, and hope you enjoyed it as much as we did. To wrap things up before launching a brand new theme (and hashtag!) for fall, here’s a look back at Summer Love.

We introduced Summer Love and the purpose behind it here, as well as a fun list of Southern Doins inspired by our favorite childhood memories to help guide us. What was most important to us all summer long was sharing these memories and activities with our beaus, and growing in our relationships as a result.

We couldn’t resist the opportunity to revisit some of our all-time favorite summer editorials, and loved strolling down memory lane with Carolina On My Mind from V3 and Fun and Fancy Free from V7.

Since the inspiration from Summer Love came from our childhoods, we took turns filling out a fun interview about what we were like as kids, and what our favorite summer memories are. You can find them all here: Emily, Nicole, Marissa, Kristin, and Lisa.

Kristin and her sister!

On Southern Weddings TV, we made a little video about our favorite summer dates. We loved hearing about yours, too!

Finally, we shared our summer adventures and followed along with yours on Instagram via our #PassThePopsicles hashtag. As a little thank you for participating, we foot the bill on date nights for three (randomly selected) Instagram friends–hope y’all had a blast!

And that’s a wrap! It sure has been fun, and we hope you take advantage of this weekend to grab your beau and enjoy any last-minute activities you’ve been wanting to do. When you get back on Tuesday, we’ll be ready to help you welcome fall in a sweet, intentional way–here‘s a sneak peek! :)

    We experienced our fair share of April showers and pollen season, but last month was surely a beautiful one for the Southern Weddings ladies. Aside from many #SouthernDoin‘s, we prepped for our first V6 shoots and did plenty of celebrating. Here’s what we’ve been up to in and out of the office.

    1. Marissa’s sock bun got fancy! Yes, she #putabowonit!

    2. My little strawberry plant is doing well and sprouting out teeny berries!

    3. Emily adored this punny mailing all the way from Owlabama.

    4. Lara spent her April writing her first book proposal!

    5. “It SNOWED! In April. IN the South,” said Kristin. “I made the most of it and put on my boots and put out a bowl to catch snow to make snow cream”

    6. April was Southern Weddings’ birthday month. My desk was filled with all five volumes and lots of math while we calculated stats for our birthday graphics (here and here).

    7. NC exploded into bloom in April, and we didn’t have to go farther than our office front door to find pretty flowers! This snap was taken on Emily’s midday walk.

    8. Lara is changing her name! Deciding on her middle name has proven to be one of the hardest decisions.

    9. Marissa about died when she received her monogram bracelet from Stacy Brown Designs! It’s monogram heaven!

    10. For Emily, much of April was taken up by her honeymoon to Nevis — one of her favorite snaps!

    11. Marissa sent many handwritten notes this month with her adorable new notecards! (Lettered by our own Emily Thomas!)

    12. Kristin celebrated a very big birthday with sweet friends and a delicious cookie cake (her favorite).

    13. Kristin indulged in a midnight snack in the form of a yummy Krispy Kreme doughnut!

    14. Emily and John planted their balcony veggie/herb garden.

    15. Lara and Ari told the story of their marriage and how love never fails during the Amazing Life Together webinar.

    16. Lara and Grace took a trip down the road to visit some farm friends!

    17. I hosted friends at my house for a weekend and played hostess by whipping up brunch!

    18. Marissa officially became a Lululemon convert. She especially loves their manifesto on what’s most important.

    What did y’all do in April? What were the highlights of your month?

    For us, March was all about the arrival of springtime and we took to Instagram, filling it up with #SouthernDoin’s. Temperatures are warming up here in North Carolina, so I predict even more springy goodness for April! Here’s what we were up to last month, in and out of the office.

    1. Emily’s Great Day mug and lots of to do lists filled her desk as she prepared for V6 shoots!

    2. Lara, Ari and Grace took advantage of the warmer temperatures and visited the belted goats at Fearrington.

    3. Kristin celebrated family birthdays at Lexington BBQ with some seriously delicious Southern delicacies.

    4. Marissa took her office outside in order to pretend it was the South!

    5. I added some very cool new office supplies to my collection: 80’s Glam Sharpies!

    6. Kristin traveled to the ACC Tournament in Greensboro, NC, to cheer on the Tar Heels with her hubs, Kyle. (Go Heels!)

    7. Lara and I worked on fun shop goodies and new projects.

    8. I went to Downtown Raleigh for First Friday and came across this gem. It’s North Carolina inside a mason jar on a onesie!

    9. Marissa and her handsome husband attended a Spring Training team BBQ for the Padres.

    10. Lara did some painting for her shop!

    11. Receipts times two from Emily’s Easter weekend. “Paying for the person behind us in line is one of my favorite traditions,” she says.

    12. Marissa celebrated spring with a little floral bow business! Too cute, we say!

    13. Kristin and Kyle drove down to North Carolina for Easter weekend. “I was bouncing off the walls of the car on the way down the mountain,” said Kristin. “I was so excited to spend time with my sweet family!”

    14. Emily made a chocolate peanut butter cheesecake for Easter dinner dessert. According to Em, it was as good as it sounds!

    15. Polka dots + pink nails made working on tax prep with Lara so much more fun for Marissa! At least, that’s what she told herself :)

    16. Lara, Emily and Gina hosted a successful Making Things Happen conference with some amazing ladies!

    17. With warmer temperatures around the corner, I picked up my first strawberry plants with my dad!

    18. Lara and Ari celebrated 7 years of marriage! Yay!!

    What did y’all do in March? What were the highlights of your month?
