So, I have vowed to begin a blog. I have been out of school for a few months and have always wanted to get into blogging, so here we go.


Being a designer I have always been a faithful follower of tons of blogs for inspiration mostly and to keep up on what is going on in the world of design. Now I feel ready to jump in to it myself since I finally have the time.

My goal here is really just to bring some honest girl next door kind of knowledge. I am not just a graphic designer. Through college I was always collecting inspiration from Interior blogs, Wedding blogs, my favorite stores (jcrew, world market, pottery barn, anthropologie…so on) as well as graphic design blogs. The world of design sometimes seems very broad but truthfully it all comes back to the basics whether you are painting, placing furniture in a room, buying clothes, creating a website, or drawing. It all is connected and that is the beauty of the creative world.

So throughout this blog I plan to discuss life, design, food, travel, and anything else that may surface. Also, from time to time I will post my current work and other projects and ideas that are in my head. It should be fun…don’t you think?

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.
