THE GIFT OF TIME
I was recently gifted a beautiful wood watch from JORD and I absolutely love wearing it as a unique accessory for summer. I chose the Ebony & Sable from the Cassia Series for the simple, minimalist design that is a perfect statement piece for any outfit. I will be honest, I was quite accustomed to using my phone as my watch and haven’t worn a timepiece on my wrist for many years. However, the wood link band sits on my wrist quite comfortably, and it has become much more than an accessory to me.
Since I’ve started wearing my JORD watch on a daily basis, I am getting better at tucking away my phone and being fully present in my relationships. With every day that passes, I am realizing more and more that parenting is filled with beautiful, fleeting moments that seem to pass far too quickly. In the digital age, it is sometimes easy to become absorbed in technology and social media, and we might not even realize these sweet moments are passing by until they culminate into days, then years and, suddenly, our babies aren’t babies anymore. My new watch has become a physical reminder for me to be more intentional with my time so that I can soak in as many little moments as I can. It has been a welcomed change in my fast-paced life and has reminded me to slow down and enjoy the sweet gift of time we are all given.
More about JORD
JORD is a sustainable company that creates hand-crafted wood watches from raw material. They create modern timepieces for both men and women from a variety of ethically-sourced woods. When I received my package from JORD, I was very impressed with the presentation. The watch was wrapped around a burlap pillow and carefully placed in a beautiful cedar box. My first thought was that it would make a lovely presentation as a gift for someone special. There is also a small drawer at the bottom, in which I plan to store the maintenance and cleaning supplies the watch came with. JORD also offers personalization, including optional sizing and engraving services – talk about attention to detail!
