I love learning and trying different things. It keeps everyday life from being boring, know what I mean?

In that spirit, I’ve started a monthly series, 10 Things to Try. Each month this year, I’ll share ten seasonally appropriate ideas (recipes, crafts, decor ideas, and more) that are worth trying that month. If you’d like to play along, take a pic of something new you’ve tried, then post it on social media and tag it with #HLH10Things … sound like fun?

The theme of this month’s 10 Things to Try post just might be random holidays, but if you can’t celebrate the little things in life, what can you celebrate? Ha!

Here are 10 things to try this June!

Give a Little Love to Donuts

20 Adorable DIY Donut Crafts ... these donut projects are so cute, you won't know which one to make first! | Hello Little Home

Did you know that today is National Donut Day? Yes, that most important holiday is here. 😉

Personally, I say why confine your donut consumption to just one day? Go ahead and celebrate all month long.

It’s actually been a while since I’ve had a donut, so it looks like I have my plan for the weekend.

Need a little donut inspiration? Check out my roundup of 20 adorable DIY Donut Crafts here.

And here are some cookbooks to tempt your tastebuds!

Celebrate Summer

Summer fun! | Hello Little Home

Me and my sister back in the day!

Summer is unofficially here! Woo hoo!

Texas summers are hot, and you can usually find me by the pool most weekends. What is your favorite summer activity?

I listened to a really interesting podcast from Gretchen Ruben, author of The Happiness Project and quite a few other books. She talked about designing your summer, and the basic idea is that you should make a focused plan for your summer rather than just letting it happen.

For example, one summer she tried to have lunch with friends multiple times a week. It was a great way to catch up. Another summer she worked on a book.

How would you design your summer?
