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.
My sweet pajama boy. Some days you just stay in your jammies all day, right?
Last week, I had one of the sweetest highlights that my momma heart has had in this chapter of toddler-dom. I took Kael to school, last Tuesday. There, in the parkinglot that morning, were some tears that we were trying to work through.One of my dear friends, Kim pulled up behind me and was getting her little boy, Oliver out of the car. (Kael gets to go to school with 3 of his best little friends and it's precious.) Kael's chubby cheeks were still wet and he had a scowl on his face, but the moment he saw Oliver, his face lit up and he ran over to his friend with his arms open. They hugged each other and started giggling without our coaxing. I yelled at Kim to look, before the moment was gone. It was the cutest thing. Then, they tromped into class together. Seriously, I'm living a childhood/teenage dream, taking my kid to preschool with his friends, who's moms are some of my best friends. My heart bursts every time.
Kael, you're dang cute buddy and you love life with all your heart.
