A Day With Nellie

As you all know Mike and I love our sweet golden retriever, Nellie, and honestly know our lives would not be full of as much laughter without this sweet pup. Well, the other day I was working at a wedding with A Day In May, and while I was gone Mike thought it would be fun to take Nellie down for some water action. It never fails when she goes to the water that she gets disgustingly muddy. So when I got to my computer this morning I found these precious photos he took of her getting a bath and could not help but post them. These are the pathetic eyes we get on a regular basis. Sometimes it is just too much to take.


But to understand any Nellie bath experience you have to see the photos from her bath the day we got her because it was only yesterday that it has been a year since we picked her up and she smelled like a fish from swimming in the lake so much. haha. So I thought just for the sake of reminiscing I would post those before the ones from Friday.

Hello! I’m Megan Gilger,

A strong believer that nature and the seasons are our greatest teachers. We live on a hill in Leelanau County, Michigan just a stone’s throw from Lake Michigan. This land we are responsible for is where we are focused on building a life around the seasons and intention. We spend our days here building a regenerative model of living and focusing our garden on native plants and intensive polyculture planting styles. My focus is less on self-sufficiency and more on community-sufficiency through how we grow and connect through the seasons.
