This time of year we always plan to getaway somewhere warmer. We have been loving winter, but anyone that lives through a solid winter (okay this year it has been whimpy, but still) will tell you you have to get the heck out of town for a bit. Heading somewhere warm is necessary to warm you up, give you a chance to get some much needed Vitamin D, and remember what it means to really sweat again. Since many of you are most likely planning to do something similar in the coming weeks, I pulled together a new edit for the month to help you find those sometimes hard to discover fresh items for days by the pool or wandering coastal towns in warmer parts of the world.

We are heading out a week from Sunday for Texas for just over a week. Mike and I are planning a little solo trip in Austin and west Texas for a couple nights, which is much needed after some REALLY busy few weeks. It will be good to be off duty in every capacity while getting warmed up. That said, I had a little bit of fun putting this one together because I won’t lie that I am itching for warm days even though I have enjoyed the last few sunny “warm” days we have been having. No matter how much you love winter or any season for that matter, it is natural to begin to anticipate the next season. March is usually that point for me with winter so I am glad we will be kicking off a new month in good ole warm Texas.

So do any of you have any exciting trips coming up in the next few months?! I would love to hear!

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.
