Not sure if you all know this about me but I am kind of major fan of the kitchen but I never look as cute and put together as Audrey. Typically it is my in leggings and an oversized sweater that I found deep in my hubby’s closet. I don’t wear cute aprons even though I have them and most likely I am covered in flour, but who says baking is supposed to be as perfect as Audrey Hepburn. 

With that said, I look forward to the holidays because I feel it is the only time of the year other than birthdays I feel I can justify a ridiculous amount of baking. I do my best not to keep the cookies and truffles around or else I would not be able to rock anything awesome for New Year’s. I also make sure I cook things full of veggies and whole grains that day so I don’t feel bad sampling every thing at least once or maybe even twice. 

I plan to listen to some great Christmas music like this 8tracks mix from Kate Arends of Wit + Delight. She is a mad awesome mix taper, right?! 

While all those cookies are baking away and getting all yummy I am hoping to wrap presents and plan out a fun tablescape and get in a photo of us for our holiday card! I promise to post recipes and give you some sneak peaks, don’t worry!


Looking for holiday gifts (Christmas cookies, Valentine’s, Father’s & Mother’s Day gift ideas, etc.)? Have a peek at these housewarming cookies by Chocolate Shipped Cookies for some of the best options to choose from!

Hope you all have a lovely weekend full of Holiday Cheer as we are less than 10 days away!!

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.
