From June through September 2013 is our Summer of Love!

Basically this is a summer of sharing (you guessed it) love, inspiration, uplifting ideas/theories/stories/quotes/pictures/questions or anything to do with sunshine and positivity!

There will be three main events.

1. MEMBER AWARDS

In brief, there will be a number of special spiritual awards to win and we will vote for the winners from a list of participants. We will be making sure all participants win at least one award. Winners will receive a blinkie for their siggy. For details and sign-ups see this thread:
http://www.justmommies.com/forums/f8...er-awards.html (Summer of Love Member Awards)

2. SECRET SOUL SISTER

Again, in brief, this is a gift exchange. Members buy or make a gift for their secret soul sister to a budget, traditionally this has always been a pampering gift or something they can use for their spiritual development (or a bit of both). Sign-ups are now open:
http://www.justmommies.com/forums/f83-spiritual-living/2662915-summer-love-secret-soul-sister-exchange-sign-ups-and-info.html (Summer of Love Secret Soul Sister - Deadline Vote)
*Participants will be expected to have been active on SL in the last 3 months AND have at least 100 posts on the SL board.*

3. VIRTUAL LOVE-IN

There is no date or specific schedule of activities decided for this yet, it's all very much TBA, keep your eyes open for updates over the next few weeks! Basically this is a virtual get-together in real time. We will vote on dates/times. Due to time zone differences, we usually have a thread open for 24 hours in which we share music and chat, but then vote on "time slots" which are usually 1-3 hour slots where an organiser will run an activity. If you would like to help and/or have ideas for activities please PM me.

YOU CAN ALSO PARTICIPATE BY...

- Sharing inspirational summer photos and summer memory photos of your holidays, days out, special times etc (full details in the thread) here:
http://www.justmommies.com/forums/f8...e-gallery.html (Precious Memories Of Summer - Photo Share Gallery)
Every photo share post will earn you a point for the 2013 Top Posters.

- Posting summer-inspired topics, questions, games, etc on the board. These should be tagged "summer of love 2013" (tagging options can be found at the bottom of a post). At the end of the summer I will search under the tag and any summer topics you have made & tagged will count as TWO points in the Top Posters instead of one.

(The Top Posters sticky has been taken down to make room for SoL stickies but you can read more about it here: http://www.justmommies.com/forums/f8...rs-2013-a.html)

- Posting summer inspirations in this thread, so anytime we need a boost of sunshine we can come here and be inspired! This could include summer-inspired quotes, links to songs, pictures, blinkies and flairs.

Enjoy your summer of love!

>>> SUMMER OF LOVE SIGGY GRAPHICS <<<

PLEASE SUMMER-IFY YOUR SIGGY! If enough of you do it we will vote a winner for a prize reading. (This does not necessarily mean using the graphics here - your own summer siggy from Siggies R Us, a summer photo or photos, or your favourite summer quotes could be used. Or a mixture!)

To add any of these to your siggy:
1. Right click and save.
2. Upload to photo hosting site, for example Photobucket or Flickr.
3. Copy the IMG code (it may be labelled BBcode).
4. Paste the IMG code into your siggy editor.
5. Save your siggy.

To scroll images in your siggy:
You need to type [marquee] before the images you wish to scroll and [/ marquee] without the space at the end of them.

Go, go, go sharing summer inspirations!

And to start us off...

A bit of a theme song!

Sorry about the ad but it does have a cute baby on it!


Here comes the sun (doo doo doo doo)
Here comes the sun, and I say
It's all right

Little darling, it's been a long cold lonely winter
Little darling, it feels like years since it's been here
Here comes the sun
Here comes the sun, and I say
It's all right

Little darling, the smiles returning to the faces
Little darling, it seems like years since it's been here
Here comes the sun
Here comes the sun, and I say
It's all right

Sun, sun, sun, here it comes
Sun, sun, sun, here it comes
Sun, sun, sun, here it comes
Sun, sun, sun, here it comes
Sun, sun, sun, here it comes

Little darling, I feel that ice is slowly melting
Little darling, it seems like years since it's been clear
Here comes the sun
Here comes the sun, and I say
It's all right

Here comes the sun
Here comes the sun, and I say
It's all right
It's all right




INSPIRATIONAL SUMMER QUOTES

I'm afraid I need to remove myself from the Summer of Love fun...we're going on vacay soon, and I don't know how much time I'll be able to give and participate as I would like to...

I'll check in when I can, and my heart will be with you all...many blessings to each of you girls. ♥♥♥

You can join in with whatever you're around for honey. How long are you going on vaca for? I'm on vaca 3 weeks from now and then again 2 weeks later. I'm sure we'll all be a little here and a little elsewhere.
