I took this picture last weekend on our first sailboating trip of the season. No that isn’t our sailboat but instead neighbors but I loved it and how classic American summer it felt with the flag on the back blowing in the wind. It felt right for this weekend links post to lead you into the 4th of July holiday weekend. 

Anyways on to the weekend links! WOO HOO! I have not been reading a lot this week or been overly active in the internet world but I do have some great things that should be useful to celebrate both summer and our nation’s independence.  

1. Some yes please yummy treats that I would love to make this weekend: Earl Grey Chocolate Cupcakes with Lavender frosting, Pink Lemonade Ice box Cake, and Meyer Lemon Vegan “Cheese” Cake

2. These drappy tops have won my heart: Tribal from Anthro, stripes from Modcloth, and Watercolor by Urban

3. Totally obsessed and inspired with the work of Luci Everett right now. I hope to bring this look into more of my work in the future. 

4. I am usually not into too many style blogs where people show their outfits but I am really inspired with a couple I came across this week. The first is Kendi Everyday and the other is Atlantic-Pacific. I think you guys will enjoy them both. 

5. A few spaces that inspired me this week: Modern/Rustic home, white and concrete kitchen, and Platform day bed

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.
