when i was a teacher, dave bought me a beautiful fossil watch that i adored. shortly after i received it, the watch quit working and the date was always a few days behind. we sent it out to have repaired, but it was returned still broken. the company gave us the run around and i was ultimately left with a beautiful, pricey, broken watch that i couldn't wear. i was devastated and i haven't worn a watch since, though i love wearing one. so when JORD Watches contacted me at the end of summer to try out their fall line, i absolutely accepted.
the other day, i pulled out elias' baby book and took a moment to update it. it had been many, many months since i had done this and when i finished i was SO happy that i did it. i want him to pull that book out one day and feel loved. i want him to know that i took time to write out my thoughts, his measurements + milestones myself, rather than type it and print it out for him. i want him to share it with his children one day and laugh at how different their world is compared to what his was a child.
