GIVEAWAY CLOSED – Congrats @jutehomeco!

Last Friday marked Daren and my 5 year wedding anniversary. If I’ve learned anything in the past half decade it is that you need to make time count. While Daren and I have been together for almost a decade total, we’ve packed a lot of growing, learning and adulting into the last few married years, particularly after becoming parents and building our first home. We’re only mildly domesticated, but we had a lot to celebrate over dinner on our anniversary night. However, I think what we both really want is to freeze time for just a moment, to appreciate what we have literally and figuratively built together .
As a constantly on to the next project type of person, it can be hard for me to enjoy the moment, rather than count the minutes go buy. Daren’s always been better at the living in the moment thing (though when I’m not feeling sentimental I may mistake this trait as not-able-to-multitask… whoops!) A few weeks ago, it dawned on me the best thing I could give him for our anniversary was time.
So that’s what I did. I gave him my time, a photo session full of moments in time with his favorite princess and this unique zebrawood and sandalwood watch from JORD.
I’m happy to announce I’m not only sharing the gift of time with my husband, but with my readers, as well!
I’ve partnered with JORD for a very awesome giveaway where everyone wins! One lucky winner will receive a $100 gift certificate and everyone else will get $25 off just for entering!
The contest ends at 11:59 CST on October 18, 2017. Both the $100 and the $25 codes expire on December 24, 2017
When JORD approached me and asked if I had any interest in gifting my husband a watch, I jumped at the chance. Why? Well, there is the obvious. They are stunning handcrafted wood watches and his carpenter heart would love it. But more importantly, the company says themselves, “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.” I couldn’t think of anything more fitting to mark our anniversary.
I couldn’t leave out Miss E, so the day before our anniversary I got out the beautiful wood box that is practically a gift itself, and showed our girl. She could barely contain her excitement to gift it to her Daddy. When Daren finally got home from work I captured the beautiful moments between the two. Now Daren has a beautiful wooden watch and we all have beautiful memories captured in time. Happy anniversary to me!
JORD wood watches are the perfect classic, yet unique gift for that special man in your life or maybe even the perfect treat for yourself! They’re made of 100% natural, hand finished wood, including maple wood, ebony, zebrawood and more, with a sophisticated and scratch-free sapphire crystal glass casing. You can even have the watch or the presentation box engraved in script, imagery or even your own handwriting, making your watch 100% one-of-a-kind.
Bottom line – These wood watches are eco-friendly and outrageously cool. Daren’s already getting compliments on his wooden watch. He has the Zebrawood & Dark Sandalwood watch from the Conway series.
