When JORD Watches recently gave me the opportunity to wear and review one of their watches to share it with you, I was pretty darn excited. As I was exploring their website, this quote really struck a chord with me.
The value of a watch is not in being able to tell how much time has passed, but in being aware of the need to make that time count. Moments are bigger than minutes and your watch should tell more than time.
As a mother, it can be so easy to get caught up in what happened last week, yesterday, or even this morning. Or, even more common, we start looking too far into the future (sometimes as a way to survive whatever stage we’re in that is wearing us down). As I try to slow down and live more in the moment, I’ve realized just how difficult that is to do.
Just as I have to make a conscious effort to keep my wardrobe small and easy to manage, I have to make even more of an effort to keep myself in the moment. Not only is it a gift to myself, but a gift to my family to be present with them and enjoying the moments instead of stressing about what’s next.
I am so glad JORD reminded me of this as we approach Mother’s Day and summer break when I have an opportunity to live in the moment. Now each time I look at my watch, I hope to remember that it’s telling me more than time.
Now, onto the watch. Stay tuned…there’s a giveaway where everyone wins (link below)!
I received this Zebrawood and Champagne wood watch because I knew the warm wood tones would fit in perfectly with my black, cream, and cognac color palette I’ve been obsessed with recently, but I also think the Koa & Ash and Dark Sandalwood & Smoke are just so cool (see the full collection of women’s watches).
I have been wearing my watch constantly since receiving it. The wood is very lightweight and easier to wear than I expected. Plus, you can send your wrist measurement, so it arrives ready to wear. The watch arrives wrapped around a burlap pillow in a gorgeous wood box. There is a cleansing cloth included as well.
The unique styling and face colors of these watches is a great way to complete a simple outfit. I have gotten compliments on my new watch every time I’ve worn it. I have had a few days lately where all I could muster up was a basic jeans and tee, but adding this watch effortlessly pulled the look together, especially because the sandalwood color matches some of my favorite shoes and necklaces to complete the outfit.
One reason I love JORD is their commitment to sustainability and fair wages, but also to using natural wood treatment on their product. Many of the watches are made from old furniture pieces that JORD is saving from the landfill and the Koa wood watches are made from damaged trees.
I am so excited to be able to host a Giveaway with JORD just in time for Mother’s Day
