Summer Southern Doins

by in In The Office on

Perhaps more than even sweet tea and seersucker, the South is known for its summers! They may be hot, humid, and mosquito-y, but they’re also pretty darn magical–the long days and sunshine lend themselves perfectly to enjoying everything the South has to offer. Our Summer Doins checklist from last year was such a success, we decided to bring it back for 2014, and we hope you’ll print it off, stick it to your fridge, and then get outside and have some fun!

You can download a printable copy here! We have a little office competition going to see who can cross off the most, and we’re excited to try new things and revisit old favorites. A few of our best memories from last year included floating down a river, relaxing at the beach, making fried green tomatoes, and taking a road trip!

Which doin’ will you be starting with? Use the hashtag #SouthernDoin so we can follow along on your adventures!

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!

src=”https://southernweddings.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/07/red-anchor-flip-flops.jpg”> src=”https://southernweddings.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/07/red-velvet-ice-cream.jpg”>

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’!

P.S. Suggestions for future challenges are welcome! Just leave a comment below or feel free to email me.
