Depending on where you live, June can either be sweatshirt weather or sweating weather. I live in Georgia, where it’s definitely already the latter, so I’ve been working on ways to get outside without passing out. (I grew up in Seattle, so I can be slightly dramatic about heat…) (But also, it’s so hot here.)

Whether you’re still a little bundled up or you’re stripping off layers, June still signals the beginnings of summer - swimming and lemonade and fireworks and picnics. Are you ready for it?

I’ve been trying to take advantage of the not yet completely sweltering whether by hiking to as many waterfalls as I can find. Georgia may not have the sweeping vistas of Yosemite or the Olympics or Mount Hood, but we have some fine looking waterfalls. And what’s more summery than a hike that ends in cool breezes and rushing water? The only trouble is having to hike back up…

I’ve hiked to three different waterfalls in the last two weeks! So that’s how I “Color Me Summer." I’m all about water - blues and greens. What are your summer colors? Comment on Facebook by June 21st (the first official day of summer!) with a summer adventure you’re hoping to go on - as big as a cross country road trip or as small as a picnic in the park - and you’ll be entered in a drawing for our brand new super bright and colorful notecards. Write a note to a friend or post them around your house and get in the summer spirit!

PS: Can you see my shirt in the photo? That’s some old school (dare I say vintage?) RPF - A Daring Adventure or Nothing at All. It’s one of my favorites. And the shirt tied around my waist is one of our longsleeves from a few winters ago. These shirts last forever.
