I'm Jess Gatlyn. i'm loving life with my guy Samuel and our little boho wilds, Forest and Cedar. We like to tell stories from our journey in thought, art, image and film. This is where I gather favorite memories, share my own creative expression in soul, dress and living. this is my window to find commonality and kindred spirits. I believe in simple love and find joy in celebrating the hearts of those around me, near or far.
Lists, lists, lists...and MORE lists. I don't do well with electronic lists. For some strange reason I have to write my lists down, on real paper, with a real pen, for it to actually be usable to me. I spent an hour last night, compiling several lists of things that I still need to purchase, make, create and organize for Káel's birthday party, this Sunday afternoon. I LOVE this stage of party planning when everything comes together and my vision starts to become visible! The fact that my little boy is actually turning 1 has just started to hit me, in the last couple of days. I've cried a lot and found myself watching all the old videos of him from the last year, over and over, always ending with me wiping my eyes. Growing up is so amazing, but the time that my little boy was and is a baby, is only a sliver of his life and I feel like it went too fast. Did I savor every adoring coo and smile as I rocked him to sleep? Will I remember the way he felt, sleeping on my chest 5 years from now? Sigh. No more sappy sadness Jess, it's time to party! My little adventurer is this much closer to exploring life and the world he lives in!
To my lists! I'm going to try and get a big chunk knocked out before my folks get here around 3. Eeeeee!!!! Have a fantastic day! Maybe, scribble out a list? ;)
