I have been obsessed with this image for a while. I wasn’t sure how to I wanted to drop it on here but here you go. It just needed to be shared. The lines and contrast and beautiful. 

Believe this was Twiggy in the image or at least it looks like her. Pinterest is down today which is pretty sad which also means I cannot reference where this image came from. Sad day!

In other news last night I was up late hammering through some very fun and gorgeous branding I am dieing to share with you guys. I would share it today if it was possible but I can’t till they launch on May 2nd, which means I get to share May 2nd as well!!

This project has been a dream for me. It allowed for a lot of artistic exploration and growing. I love walking away from a project and visually seeing growth as a designer. It is one thing to feel it but seeing speaks much deeper to me. 

I actually have to say how blessed I feel to have such amazing clients who come to me with such trust and admiration. I feel as a designer I am constantly proving myself to myself more than I realize. This is a great thing for my clients, but when I looked back at a project from my senior year in college I could see the amount growth I have had in the last two years. 

Honestly I attribute it to the people around me. Mike (husband) is my biggest cheerleader, best friend, and also my harshest critic. As many times as I have gotten angry and frustrated with him he has made me jump to places I always wanted to but didn’t think I could. He never let’s me settle than my best. He would tell you I do the same and critic his work just as hard but the greatest thing for either of our work is each other.

So in all that I have to say if you are a designer, photographer, blogger, or simply a tastemaker you need to have someone in your life that calls you on the rug and pushes you to grow in every aspect of life. It is greater than any book, any conference, or any software program for productivity. 

Happy Thursday! If you live in California know that I want to be you. A foot of snow over night in April is not even sane, but then again I live in Michigan 


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.
