As a kid, I remember waking up each morning during the summer not knowing what day it was, what time it was, and not having a care in the world. All I knew was that I wanted to play outside and enjoy as much of each summer day as possible. As an adult, summers are quite different. I am woken up each morning by my alarm clock, being reminded what day it is, what time it is, and all of the items that are on my to do list. Now, most summer days are spent inside working at the office, but on the weekends, I still love spending as much time as possible outside gardening or grilling on our back patio, cooling off at Barton Springs, picnicking at Zilker Park, or boating on the lake. Having a beautiful, lightweight watch like this wood watch from JORD makes it easy to keep time so I can savor each minute of my time.
JORD is a unique wood watch brand for men and women based in the United States with a passion for creating timepieces for the modern lifestyle. Their pieces are carefully crafted from thirteen different types of wood materials, durable sapphire glass, and sustainable elements. My watch is the Frankie 35 in dark sandalwood and mint, which has the perfect pop of color for spring and summer. The Frankie 35 series has a smaller 35 millimeter face compared to the Frankie series which is great for my petite frame, and it also comes in slate and zebrawood and navy. My other favorite style is the Cora series. Best of all, their mission 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."
I love having a daily reminder on my wrist to take time to appreciate the time I have been given and to spend it doing what I enjoy most with the people who matter most every day of every season. So, I'm teaming up with the JORD team to give away a $100 gift code to use on the site! All you have to do is:

Little bitty love,
