Kitchen Light  |  The Fresh Exchange


The spaces around us can change our daily patterns, mood, and even change the way we see something as simple as breakfast. Our little kitchen is changing the way we see our daily life and even the smallest details of our space. The beauty of light is that it can tell a story, show the flavor and depth of an item, and even hide or show flaws. Light is an amazing thing and one that very commonly can be overlooked. The more we are exploring food photography and styling we are beginning to see that light can dictate every bit of feeling in a photo. I am trying to challenge myself to find the perfect light that feels natural, beautiful, and full of life, even in the darkest parts of the day. Light makes all the difference.

Hope your week is off to a good start. We have been hosting Mike’s family and enjoying this special time together, but are back in the office full time tomorrow!

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.
