Take it Slow  |  The Fresh Exchange


Live simpler.

Live fully.

Pull out the guitar.

Listen to Springsteen.

Drink it neat.

Watch the sun set and listen to the wind blow.

Forget that the internet exists.

Enjoy the moment for all it’s worth in all it’s perfection or lack there of.

Life is in motion and it breaks my heart when I feel as if it passes me too quickly. No matter what this week left you with or without, find time this weekend to leave it all behind for a simple moment being thankful. Ask yourself what you really want. Dream a little.

I hope yall have an awesome weekend. We are up north for the holiday and enjoying watching the snow fall quietly outside. Looking forward to enjoying probably one of the snows we will have this year. Glad it came while we are here!

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.
