Yesterday was a tough one. I will not lie. It has been a long time since that has happened. Normally even the most insane day won’t put me in to a fetal position, but yesterday oh it was rough to say the least. I won’t get into the details as reliving it is not worth it, but I will say the feeling of waking up the next morning knowing it can only be better is a great feeling. Funny how bad things make even the most normal feel extraordinary.

Vacation is within reach as next week I am taking a whole week away from designing. I will still be blogging but I have not taken a break since our honeymoon 2 years ago. Insane. I am excited to recharge and gain a new perspective during this time off.

Happy Thursday my friends! May it be better than yesterday for everyone 😉

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.
