Valentine's Day Gift - Time management + JORD Wood Watch

One of the most important lessons I've learned since becoming a mom is how to value time. Time is precious and it's fleeting! I feel like it was just yesterday that my husband and I brought our son Riley home. It seems like he went from a sleepy newborn to a bubbly, smiley and extremely active 3-month old in the blink of an eye.  Time is no longer just the numbers I see when I look down at my watch. It is the half an hour in the morning my husband spends with our son reading, and the 10 minutes of tummy time a day, and the 45 minutes I have to sneak out for a run before Riley's two hour nap in the afternoon.

These days I feel like I am constantly looking at the time to keep myself and my family on track, so the search for the perfect everyday watch began! I knew I wanted something that would make me feel put together even on the most hectic days as a new mom. Jord watches are sleek and stylish yet light weight and durable, perfect for my busy and active lifestyle... and did I mention comfortable and splash-proof (comes in handy with an infant!). I loved all the watches in the women's collection, but I ultimately decided on the Frankie Series Ebony and Gold watch based on my skin tone and dark hair - it's perfect for my minimalist look but adds a bit of flair! The natural ebony is hand finished and pretreated with tung oils. The watch face is made of sapphire crystal glass and is super sleek. The clasp is easy to put on (with one hand) and the watch came fitting perfectly (I measured my wrist at 16cm - and it came fitting this way). 

All of their watches are just beautiful - they are really unique, each one crafted from a different types of wood ranging from bamboo, to sandal to walnut and many more. You can even get your watch engraved on the back, like I did. Check out their variety of watches here! Thinking of getting the man in your life a Jord Watch for Valentine's day?
