Today it is 70 degrees out, there is still large piles of snow in my yard, but I thought it appropriate to take some time to relax. With no vaca since November I have been feeling burnt out as of late. A lot of projects on the burners and making of a lot of decisions lately has me needing a little time away. I decided it would be good to just relax today. I have such a hard time unplugging from work because I love what I do so much, but with the past three nights being spent dreaming in Photoshop, Twitter, and blogging, I think it is probably good to enjoy the sun, read a book from beginning to end, and do some Spring cleaning. Sometimes you have to step away and use your hands in order to make great work.

So if you need a break this me telling you it is okay to do so. When you have a lot going on sometimes it is best to step away in order to keep going. No shame in that my friends.

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.
