HEY, I’M MEGAN.
I grew up just outside of Grand Rapids in the Comstock Park/Sparta area. My family lived on a backroad in the middle of apple orchards and I wouldn’t trade it for the world. I’ve learned to appreciate farmers and how beautiful and rewarding growing your own food in a personal garden is.
The outdoors has always been a happy place for me. I love learning more about the true healing that comes from connecting to nature and unplugging from our online world. Picking the sweetest tasting strawberries and best tasting tomatoes in the world are just a few of the simple pleasures in my life.
Although I grew up in the country, I adore the city life just as much. Earning my degree and going to classes in Grand Rapids for 4 years is what made me fall in love with a city that had been so close my whole life.
On a regular day, you can find me hanging out at local coffee shop sipping an oat milk lavender latte, walking the streets of GR and casually taking pictures everywhere I go. At home, I could spend hours every day in my garden or tackling a new house project with my husband. #newlyweds
I’m a sustainability nerd! In the last couple years, I’ve found myself researching & learning about our consumer habits and how unsustainable they are. It breaks my heart and I’ve committed myself to living sustainably by avoiding single use items and replacing them with items that will last hundreds of uses! My personal goals started with switching to metal straws, bringing my own reusable bags shopping, eating my entire meal when eating out so I don’t need a takeout box, bringing my own mug to places, and cancelling Amazon!
5 more small things about me:
My favorite GR small businesses are Fox Naturals, Global Infusion, Uncle Cheetah’s Soup Shop, Schnitz Deli and Lucy’s Creston Kitchen.
I’m OBSESSED with Schnitz Deli.
One of my favorite bible verses is Phillipians 4:7. “And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”
Lover is my favorite Taylor Swift album (1989 is a close 2nd.)
I’m a newlywed!!! Wifey: established June 2021!!
