I have been seeing the most amazing combinations on the streets of Paris when it comes to clothing. Not only that while I have been here I have begun to understand the necessity for essentials and that you really can live on very little when you get down to it. I never thought that was possible, but having pieces you really love is so key. I have a jacket I have worn almost every day that I picked up at Gap right before leaving and it has dressed things up and down. I cannot believe how versatile it has been. It makes me wonder what pieces now I don’t need or will get rid of when I return.

Have you ever tried to live on less clothing? Thoughts? Was it good or bad to you? Did you stick with it? Very curious as I am really considering slimming my closet.

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.
