Yeah so I know I don’t normally post on the weekend but I didn’t write a Happy Weekend post and I hadn’t shared my new look with you all. 

I told you all I was going for a new hair cut on Wednesday and I felt it would not be nice not to share. I have to tell you I am crazy in love with not just the color I have now but the cut is awesome to next level. I have pretty thick hair so most of the time I am someone who has to have lots of layers which would explain the many years I have had long locks. Well I was kind of getting sick of all the dead ends and not being able to do much other than side braids, messy buns, and everything. It always seemed to be in the way and up more than down. So I jumped at the chance to chop off all the old stuff and start fresh but I am going to be honest and tell you I may be staying short for a while. 

My whole thing with hair is pretty low maintenance. I do not even own a brush or a hair dryer…I may be able to dig up a curling iron if I tried but my only hair tools is my trusty shampoo and some loose low hold hair spray. I typically air dry my hair while I read emails and design the day away. I then fluff half way through the day with a little hair spray and let it go after that. I try to go 1-2 days without washing it because it seems to get a little better texture and I find some fun way to pull it up by the end of the no-washing spree. 

This little do has made me feel great this week and I just had to share. 

Hope you all have a lovely lovely weekend. I am meeting with a client and then planning some mad pumpkin carving tonight. 


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.
