This season of our life has been SO incredibly busy! I’ve found it hard to make time for or find the energy to take on extra projects. And now the holiday season is upon us! With the new year fast approaching, I find myself thinking more and more about what we can do differently to make more time for each other and for the things we want.
They say that no matter how busy you are, you always make time for the things you WANT to do. Before the end of the year, I really want to take a step back. Take time to think about the things that I want so that in the new year I can make a conscious effort to MAKE time. Now that the projects at the house have slowed down a bit (story for another day) and M is sleeping through the night in her own room, one of the things I’d really like is more time as husband and wife. I’d like to make time to focus on our marriage.
It’s so easy to let our relationship take a backseat when we’re wrapped up in a million different roles and titles — mom, dad, homeowner, diyer, employee, blogger, friend, brother, daughter, son. It’s nice to know that being consumed by other responsibilities doesn’t negatively affect our relationship, but it definitely doesn’t make it better.
In 2018, I want to spend more time as husband and wife. More importantly, I want to focus more on how (with what feels like not enough hours in the day) I can be a better partner. So when JORD (maker of handcrafted wood watches) reached out to partner with me, the timing could not be more perfect. See what I did there? 😉
Depending on how you look at it, Brian is either really hard to shop for OR really easy to shop for. He doesn’t like much and what he does like, he has to test out and figure out on his own. If you like your gifts to be a surprise and you don’t approve of gift cards, Brian would drive you nuts! But, he does love watches and he loves all things wood so this was a perfect opportunity to “surprise” him with one of JORD’s handcrafted wood watches.
JORD has an awesome selection of unique styles that go from casual-and-simple to dressy-and-intricate and everything in between. Brian chose the Zebrawood + Dark Sandalwood watch from their Dover Series and was really impressed with the craftsmanship. Not going to lie, I love it!
The watch is gorgeous and surprisingly light. The grain detail of the zebrawood contrasted with the dark sandalwood makes for a striking combo and the skeleton dial showcasing the mechanics gives the watch a rugged but refined feel. After seeing the watch in person, I went back and took a look at the women’s watches and added one to my Christmas wish list.
