Days like This  |  The Fresh Exchange

Sunny mornings, cool breezes, warm patio, light dinners…It may be slowly becoming Summer around here. This week has felt good…really good as in I feel very blessed to do what I do, live where I do, work with the people I do, and have the projects I do. I always told myself I would not take it for granted but I think part of me has. I didn’t realize how precious the slow mornings on the porch in the sun and the early evenings eating with friends are. When it is cold and awful outside it makes everything seem harder and more full of shadows, doesn’t it? It makes you sad and it makes you feel more defeated than ever, so these warm days are bringing me out of those tough times of really feeling I was missing it or I was failing continually. Ugh Winter we are not friends.

That being said it is amazing to be here at this time of year in Traverse City, if you asked me a month and a half ago I would have told you I would have taken any chance to get out of here to have the sun on my skin and the grass under my toes. This place in the Summer is magic and I am getting so anxious to enjoy it thoroughly.

This weekend we are painting a logo on a food truck we designed here in Traverse City and we will be shooting some photos for a catalog for a catering company. We are really loving all our work right now, especially when it looks like that.

Over the next few weeks we will be sharing the finished pieces and brands that we have been working on. We have a total of 4 brands we want to share with you all. We are really excited to let them out of the bag and talk about them and about the process. Really exciting stuff!!!

Since it will be warm this weekend we also plan to enjoy some long nights on the deck and we hope to paint our sailboat so next weekend we can begin sailing. You all have no idea how excited I am about that. I miss the water and the sunsets on our little boat. It’s time to get out there even if it is a little chilly.

Watch our instagrams (Mike  |  Megan) over the weekend to see what we are up to! It’s going to be a good weekend!

What do you all have planned this weekend? What are you most looking forward to as Summer is approaching?

  1. We are heading into winter in Sydney, so this post has made be a bit jealous of the warmer weather! I love the way you describe being on the porch, there’s something so simple but so lovely about that.

    Having said all that, I have to admit that I am loving the crisp sunny mornings we have been having in May – they feel so fresh & invigorating!

  2. Your weekend sounds lovely.

    Summer brings garden love, dinners spent picking corn and grilling it up a few feet nearby, and lazy afternoons laying on the cement with cats next to us. It means long nights full of sunshine, and beautiful sunsets that turn New York into one big shadow.

  3. Wow, sounds like you have a lot on your plate! Looking forward to hearing about the 4 brands you are working on. Planning to enjoy the warm weather here in New York in between getting things done this weekend. Enjoy yours!

  4. Wishing you a great weekend! I look forward to hearing and seeing more of your beautiful work.

    I’m winding down from an intense finals week, celebrating a friend’s birthday with a 50’s-themed soirée, and then introducing my boyfriend’s dad to Paris. It’s bound to be a good one :).
