Remember Kirstin’s Pretty in Pink post kicking off Spring in film? With the official start of summer just around the corner in the northern hemisphere, here are some beautiful shots from our Everyday Beauty Group to kick off summer in all its gorgeous shades of pink.

Just living is not enough. One must have sunshine, freedom, and a little flower.
Hans Christian Andersen

We love seeing what inspires you, because it inspires us too! Please keep adding your shots to the group and continuing to inspire us all summer long!
