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.
I love coconut oil! I use it for lip balm, lotion, cooking and several other things! It's pretty much amazing. It's anti-inflamatory, anti-microbial, anti-viral and helps you to absorb more nutrients from your food. You can use it for moisturizer and even deodorant. Kael thinks it's pretty awesome, too. He wanted to put some on his lips yesterday, so I let him. Then, I just watched as he continued to rub it all in his hair and eat finger scoops of it. He must have been listening to me earlier when I was telling Sam how good it is for curly hair...haha. I figured the mess would be minimal and he was having fun experimenting with the texture. Needless to say, Kael smells like a tropical beach boy. =)
