One thing Ben and I have discovered since becoming parents is that we crave more time together. We knew it’d be important to carve time out for the two of us, but we didn’t realize just HOW important that would be. We try to go on a date night at least once a month. Ideally, it’d be twice a month, but we realize that sometimes that just isn’t possible. I think husbands like to spoil their wives (and I’m not gonna lie, I love the attention and gifts!), but if I’m honest, what I really want is more of him. More time with him. I always tell Ben it doesn’t matter what we do or where we go on our date nights. I just want to date! You know what I mean? I want to learn more about him. Yeah, he’s the same person I married 5 years ago, but he’s also changed, just as I have. We’re always growing and evolving. I wanna know what he’s excited about, what interests him, and what he’s enjoying these days. It’s way too easy to get caught up in the day to day routine and forget to talk about things like that. We talk more about our toddler and what he’s been up to these days, how he’s challenging us, how we love him so much. It’s also hard to really have those deep conversations when you have a 2 year old around! That’s why I love date nights. Even if it means we’re chatting on the couch after he’s gone to bed, TV off and phones put away. The connection is what I crave the most. And honestly, that’s probably what our Valentine’s Day is gonna look like – we’ll probably order in and then either watch a movie or cuddle and talk for hours. And I wouldn’t want it any other way! (p.s. Ben, if you’re reading this, let’s do this! Postmates for the win! 😉 lol)
Even though the gift of time is incredibly important to me, I love to receive a good gift! I give gifts to people I love and care about. I love to think of thoughtful and unique gifts for them, based on the occasion. Valentine’s Day can be a tricky one to shop for, especially for men (am I right or am I right?!). In addition to flowers and dark chocolate (ALWAYS appreciated!), a watch is a beautiful way to let someone know you love them and care about them.
That’s why I was so excited to work with JORD watches when they reached out to me. I’ve worked with them before so I know how beautiful their wooden watches are. I know watches aren’t for everyone, but JORD has so many styles for both men and women and they make such unique, beautiful gifts. You can even personalize the watch for a nice added touch!
I love this beautiful Cora watch in Koa & Rose Gold so much. The feminine touches of rose gold and swarovski crystal are just beautiful. I also have the Frankie in Zebrawood & Navy and I love the gender neutral design and the large face. What’s great about this watch is that it would work great for men or women and comes in a couple other colors as well.
