A Few Favorites  |  The Fresh Exchange


Tonight I am working late again. Still hauling a lot on these big projects. So many things going on right now in our lives it sometimes hard to gauge reality at times. The days go by quickly and at times I forget what day of the week it is, but I know it is all worth it because as we tie up so many things there are these enormous senses of accomplishment.

None the less, I still have a continual urge to blog here. The days I am far too busy to get here hurt me in a big way, not because of the pressure of keeping up with the rest of the world, but mostly because this space is my freedom. Here I can share the things that truly inspire me, create without constraint, and make mistakes without feeling too much like an idiot. That’s why I crave it. Even though our projects we are working on are total dreams and I couldn’t be happier with what we are creating right now, I also still want this space more than anything. The blog is my most fulfilling thing…something I have realized these last few days.

All that to say I had to take some time to put together even this little roundup because I have been thinking about colors a lot lately and what makes me feel good as far as a palette goes. This is where I landed. Similar to my Falling for Fall post, but I think these colors including the golds are what my creative soul really is loving right now. It feels earthy, lived in, but still romantic, and modern. My kind of palette.

I hope you all are having a good week. I hope you are chasing hard after all the things that make you happy. More than anything I hope you feel fulfilled by something each day whether it is hanging with the one you love, cooking a great meal, and/or literally living the dream you have always had for yourself. Remember fulfillment comes in big and small ways in life.

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.
