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've lived in the Carolinas for almost 5 years now and I've never experienced a snow storm. Ok, so maybe this isn't a real snow storm, but to my Texan soul, this is a snow storm guys. At around 6 inches and the prediction of hours and hours of constant snow fall…I'm kind of in a different world right now. My backyard is now a sledding haven. Fuzzy blankets, sister talks, a fresh pot of chili simmering and group texts from my neighborhood besties about grocery runs and snow men, have my heart feeling fresh and excited. I like it when things slow down. My lists don't seem so long, my stresses about everyday things are faded and all I see is white and the wonder in my boys' eyes.
I'll be playing in the snow with my kids and singing "Let it Go" from Frozen if anyone needs me.
