I know I know It has been forever since I posted regularly on here. But would you forgive me if I did a giveaway for you!? Head on over to my Instagram (@apairofpears) to find out all the details.

Say Thanks!

September 1, 2014

Sending thank you cards out to friends are always a nice gesture and something I've been wanting and needing to do more. So in an effort to always say thank you just like my mom taught me, I decided to design a card for our shop! Now it's all done and ready to send to all those awesome friends you have that keep on doing amazing things for you. Check out the card in our shop here.

They're Here! They're Here!

A bunch of you have been asking me to make the "too many tabs open" quote into a print and it's finally in our shop along with two other new art prints! Watch out white walls. I'm covering you up!

Introducing Greeting Cards

August 11, 2014

For the past few months and in between client work, I have been designing more products to go in our shop. It has been quite the process, but this is what I love doing the most. I felt pretty accomplished (and a little nervous) this morning as I added the last of the new products to our shop. Nothing goes into our shop unless I love it 100%. I hope you love them too! Head over to our shop and check it all out. We now have greeting cards along with some new art prints! Whew! I'm going to sleep good tonight.

Summertime in Michigan

July 29, 2014

A few weeks ago we got to spend some time visiting our family in Michigan. We don't get back there much and when we do there is usually lots of snow everywhere. We love snow (in moderation) but we were really looking forward to visiting during warmer weather. 

Before we left we we made a list of everything we wanted to do. We had a lot to pack in, but we managed to get it all done and of course enjoyed every minute of it. 

One of the evenings we were there we drove to the end of the peninsula to watch the sun set. In the summer it stays light until 10:00 there. It's the strangest feeling thinking it's 6:00 and then realizing it's already 9:00. 

One of our main priorities while we were there was to try stand up paddleboarding. Jake and I have been wanting to try it for a long time now. When we were back visiting at Christmas we found out you can rent boards at the bay. We almost didn't get to do it because bad weather was coming in but we rushed down there and managed to get an hour in before the rain came. Jake was a natural. It took me a little bit to get comfortable, but once I did we paddled around the bay together and had a blast!

We also wanted to visit Mackinac Island. We haven't been back since our honeymoon. That was the first time we rode a tandem bike together so of course we had to do it again. We even got the whole family in on it. Riding around the island is one of our favorite things to do when we go up there and then afterwards grabbing some ice cream and fudge. 

Michigan is a beautiful place. We love the big trees, the bright blue water, and how everything is so green there. I think for each of us Michigan will always feel a little bit like home.
