I have taken some much needed time to myself to reflect and to try to figure out my future. Though I strive to live by my motto- "what's meant to be will be"- I continuously find myself being challenged. Challenged by life's circumstances, my body image, and my one constant- my anxiety. One of my favorite things to do for myself to try to combat all of this uncertainty is to take a short "me" break at a local coffee shop, indulge in a latte (or two), perhaps a pastry, and embrace my surroundings.
Join me on a little journey through time at one of my favorite Boston Cafes- Tatte Bakery :
I recently partnered with JORD watches after hearing about their custom wood watch engravings. I thought what better way to remind myself of my message, my mantra, than to have it engraved in a device that ironically represents the time that binds us.
To learn more about JORD's engraving options check out this link: JORD WATCH ENGRAVINGS
JORD is a unique wood watch company, priding itself in quality timepieces that are made of 100% natural wood. Each piece is unique in its pattern -just as the natural wood its made of is! No two pieces are exactly a like, making these watches all the more precious. The wood itself is timeless and beautiful. It smells crisp and real. Ron Swanson would be so so proud!! (LOL). My favorite thing about the JORD brand is their message:
TELLING MORE THAN TIME
"The value of a watch 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."
This message resonates so much with me! It literally is one of the reasons why I started this blog- to make time for myself, to embrace my passion and creativity- to make MY TIME count. I love having this watch on me as a reminder of this. What is meant to be will be and all I can do is make it meaningful.
I'm doing an amazing GIVEAWAY with the JORD team for you guys!!! You can win $100 towards your very own wood watch and a FREE custom engraving of your choice!! You can have your own daily reminder right there on your wrist. A mantra that literally will be timeless!
