Thank you David Lawrence of Joshua Tree Skin Care for sending us some amazing product to fit in perfectly with our lifestyle. Lucky Katie, and lucky me, for living our lives in a way that attracts a certain kind of human or product, enough to receive boxes of goodies in the mail! How cool. This box of goodies in particular comes from a man who began to question his happiness while in his mid-20’s during his well paying, and comfortable 9-5 job.
After re-evaluating his idea of true wealth, Dave began unwinding what he thought was “the American dream.” Over time, he rid his life of material possessions, as the fancy cars turned into an RV he called home. With plans to travel via RV in search of the perfect wave, rock, or trail, he had just enough money saved to begin a small organic skin care business while on the road. Passionate about an active lifestyle, natural ingredients, and finding happiness within his new vagabond freedom.
It’s people like Dave, and a team like Joshua Tree who seek people like Katie and myself. Without ever having a 9-5 job, I’ve learned my lesson time and time again by observing those who follow the social norm. Those who get comfortably stuck in a cubicle, puppy-eyed daydreamers, window gazers, who find themselves surfing katieandjessieonaboat.com, wishing they were doing the same. I have vowed to never find myself there, and that is what motivates the both of us to keep going.
Now I am not saying what we are doing is the smartest decision, or the most responsible (I’m sure my mother would agree) But what we are gaining, facing, learning, and experiencing from this journey, is far more pleasing then I could ask for. So once again thank you to the Joshua Tree Skin Care team for seeing us as role models for your product!
There are several things we love about this product. When you read the ingredients, you can actually pronounce the words, and understand it’s content. On their website, it lists what role each and every soothing ingredient plays. The collaboration of natural, organic, oils and waxes, are handcrafted IN MICHIGAN. Hundreds of uses from preventing a sunburn or bikini wax burn, to lubricating a bike chain, and being the cats favorite toy. A smooth application, a mild earthy scent, and it’s moisturizing element, leave my skin very happy! Not to mention the sangria and pina colada flavored chap-stick that is equivalent to happy hour on your lips starting at 8am and lasting all day.
Katie and I can never have enough chap-stick, hand salve, and sunscreen. We are still working on getting that bimini or dodger, until then (and there-after) the sun and wind elements are accompanied by Joshua Tree natural protectants. We will be sure to spread the love, and share what you have given us with all of our boating friends.
