I know this is going to sound crazy to you all but I have NEVER seen Breakfast at Tiffany’s. Insane right?! Well I finally did it last night. I got to choose the movie last night (instead of the boys…husband and roommate). I was super excited cause I have just fallen in love Audrey Hepburn lately and am wondering what I would have been like if I had grown up on her in my teenage years. She is so poised, classically dressed, and just beautiful. 

But while watching the movie I was completely inspired by how well the story was written and composed for its time. I could imagine the color boards that were created for each scene and shot. I was so inspired by the detail in the film and I think I need to watch it about 10 more times. It is a total gem and I feel very inspired by it at the moment. Also I want her Apartment and Apartment building haha. 

I also wondered if this movie could be recreated and we all decided it could not be remade simply because there is no one who could outshine Audrey Hepburn. But I think if there was someone and they did a modernized version of the film I would say Natalie Portman. Can you see it? I think I can. I love it and it made me want a cat, which is so not me. But for Inspired Now I thought this would be perfect. 

Hope you all are finding ways to stay warm cause I know it’s even kind of cold in Florida and if it is cold there than you know it is REALLY cold anywhere north of them. 

By the way we leave for Texas on Tuesday so blog will begin to slow down over the Holidays till after the new year. Very sorry!! But if you are in Texas and going to be in Austin our Houston let us know we would love to hang out!!


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.
