JORD: How I Like My Watches

A few weeks ago I was contacted by the lovely people at JORD to see if I'd like to review one of their watches.  Having recently seen some friends with wooden watches, I jumped at the chance.  It arrived a few days later, and minus a dip in the ocean (yes, we're on vacation), I haven't taken it off.  

I. Love. It.

I chose the Fieldcrest watch in Green Sandlewood.  Having just a subtle hint of color has been a fun change, as I'm usually all about the neutrals.

I think Sophie would like a baby-sized one!
She was getting me to help her walk closer to her brothers while they were doing a little tree-trimming with Dad.

She's not lasting too long before she just wants to be held again, and boy is she a heavy one!  Luckily, one of my favorite things about this watch is that it's so lightweight, I barely notice I'm wearing it.  
The next day, I documented a bit of our day.  We had some corn to shuck...

 ...and put away for Winter.

Then it was naptime, which also means coffee time.  
Finally, sweet Jeremy documented the watch with an outfit that isn't part of just the daily grind on the ranch...
I love the casual look of the watch but also how it easily accompanies a more dressed-up outfit.  Its amazing craftsmanship, light-weight design, and attention to detail has made me a lifetime customer.

If there's one thing I wish this watch did, besides everything else I love about it, it would maybe be to speed up time just a teeny bit as we await the arrival of our newest little babe.  I wish it for a split second, and then I'm kicked (or jabbed) in the rib and reminded to savor the time that I have this tiny one safe inside.
My sister already has this watch on her Christmas list, and I've received so many compliments on it just in the week I've had it.  Thank you, JORD!  We'll be back!
