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.
Hello 2013. Something in my deepest heart is pretty excited about you. 2012 was a year of growing up, learning what it really means to cherish and to trust. I learned to hope again, to find beauty and I truly feel like I settled into motherhood. My soul rooted itself in friendships, and found a sweet security, safety and rest in my growing little tribe of boys. I can't even begin to describe the heaven we find in our kids. I've had a growing sense of awe at this precious quiet of love in my life, I'm overwhelmed by it. 2012 was harshest of bitter and the purest of sweet. I've never felt as much pain, and I've never experienced as much joy as I did these past twelve months. There are so many stories that were never written, and moments that could never be captured. It was a heck of a year.
Cheers to simplicity, and to love. Here's to newness, to expectancy of good and the joy of all the days that are waiting to make us know the sweetness of life. This is going to be a precious and fabulous year.
