Y’all know that summer is at the very top of my favorites list… And, right with the most glorious of all seasons comes one of our very favorite series in blog land- Color Your Summer is coming, friends!

In fact, we’ve been chatting with our co-hostess Delia about this fabulous series since January, even before we started planning Winter Whites (a CYS spin off). Yep…we love this series!

This year, the series will last from June 24 to July 20, 2013- almost a whole month of colorful, summery goodness!

In usual Color Your Summer fashion, there will be sewing tutorials, recipes, party ideas, and more! You can see our past years HERE and HERE.

And this year is going to be bigger and better than ever!

Of course, we have an awesome line up of guests including-
