Picnic Month

Happy June & a very happy celebrate picnic month to you!

Today is officially summer for me. The weather is getting warmer, school is letting out, and we are on a small vacation. It is the perfect time to take a break and spend an afternoon under a tree- How lovely….

In case you need a dose of picnic inspiration- this engagement photo session done by Eden Photography found via Greenweddingshoes should give you just that- Oh, to run away to the woods, pitter-patter goes my heart.

Finally celebrate picnic month is here-

Grab a book, food, a blanket, whatever you’d like, lose your shoes and get out to enjoy the month of June…. oh and don’t forget your camera, we want to see those photos!

Share with us your picnic photos, elaborate or not, with your family or alone- it doesn’t matter. The point is to enjoy the season and to inspire one another to rest a bit and find the loveliness through picnicking this month.

Entry rules:

How do I tell you about my picnic?

Share with us as many or as few details as you would like. Be sure to tell us why your picnic was special.
