JORD and You – Unique Gifts for Your Special Someone!

You may remember back at the end of May that one of the ways we celebrated Father’s Day was with a JORD Wooden Watch for my hubby!

Watch fiend that he is, he still wears this piece often, and always gets lots of compliments on it! So…I may have gotten just a little bit jealous. 

Now, let me lead in by saying that I’ve never been much of a watch person, myself. It’s not that I dislike them or anything of the sort – I just never developed any kind of an affinity towards them.

But JORD has changed my mind about watches, I must say. And, I’ve gotta say: whatever the occasion, watches are a great way to reward and remind someone of all the hard work and time they’ve put into accomplishing something. Like a graduation gift. Or a back to school gift. Or a just because gift! 

Sooo…I decided to test out a JORD wooden watch for myself – one of their women’s watches, of course! Check out this pretty one that arrived in the mail for me:

On the Road in May

Y’all. We are HALF-WAY THROUGH 2016. Can you even believe that?! I’m already seeing people count-down until Christmas. Please. I just cannot. Stop the madness.

In the spirit of ignoring how quickly we are moving through the year, how about a look at what you all named the top 5 posts here on the blog in the month of May? Sounds like a plan!

Celebrate Father’s Day – with JORD Watches!




We’re seeing the end of May right around the corner, which means that Father’s Day is fast-approaching!

When I think of Father’s Day, I always think of the year that I was about 9 years old, and my sister was about 3. Mom had taken us shopping to buy something special for dad, and we picked a very nice leather belt, with a cool buckle to boot. We were so excited to give it to him that weekend! When we got home, we hid our gift so he wouldn’t find it beforehand.

Except when HE got home from work that day, my little sister piped up with a very loud, “Oh, daddy, I need to show you something!” and disappeared down the hallway. I was helping my mom set the table for dinner, so I didn’t pay her much attention…until she came flying into the living room waving around the belt we had purchased for my dad and shouting, “Look what we got you for Father’s Day!” 

Needless to say, I was not a happy camper, and my poor dad ended up having to comfort two crying daughters while he still tried to convey his appreciation for the EARLY Father’s Day Gift!

These days things are a bit different. Each year, I try to figure out what my dad would like, and each year, he tells me he doesn’t need anything. I always find something to get for him, but he is one of the hardest guys in the world to shop for, I promise!

And THIS year, since my hubby made Mother’s Day (I called it a half-baked Mother’s Day, since I haven’t even given birth yet!) extremely special for me, I wanted to make Father’s Day special for him, too! So when Stacy from JORD contacted me about their line of watches, it was literally the perfect fit!

I’ve been following JORD for a while, because their watches aren’t like the average timepiece. JORD watches are made of WOOD.

And the fact that my hubby is a huge watch fanatic made the situation even better! He’s got about a dozen different watches: from sports watches to dress watches to one of those fancy Apple watches…but no wooden watches to speak of.

So, JORD sent me an absolutely BEAUTIFUL timepiece for my hubby! Check it out!

Obviously, the mechanisms are not wood, but everything else IS!
