{enjoying R & R time with Jord wood watches + giveaway}


ashley solberg


We have three kids under five. That statement is all that’s needed to understand why we were over the moon to get away for a few days for some R & R in Maui. We absolutely adore our children and because they are our worlds, we don’t get a lot of us time amidst this busy phase of life. I know what you’re thinking, you’re on vacation, why would you even need a watch then? Because every little second was utilized to the max to fill up my fuel tank and this Jord watch was the perfect accessory for the job. 


Traveling across six times zones can create quite the challenge to keep up with a your sense of reality, so this Jord wood watch was my lifesaver. With several flights to connect and little time to do so, once onboard each flight, I always set my watch ahead to the next time zone I’m headed to. This avoids any confusion when you finally make it out of the mile long, itty bitty aisle line to get off the airplane and head to the next. Finally, you arrive at your destination and forget about what it takes to make it there and can let out that big sigh of being on vacation relief.


And then, there it is. The smell of salt water in the air and instantly my mind is at ease. Instead of imagining myself at the beach to make it through a toddler tantrum or a long day’s work, I am actually there. We head to bed early our first night as our circadian rythym thinks it’s the wee morning hours back home and start our adventures the next day. 


As the second hand ticks away, I find myself checking my Jord watch several times a day to get a grasp on time. Dozing off at the beach, immersed in the Bamboo Forest without the sun to turn to for reference, and captivated by the slow, magestic movements of the sea turtles coming to shore were a few of the moments I was whisped away in. 





Aside from the good time keeping qualities, can we talk about how this watch goes with everything?! It was pure perfection on all our outdoorsy adventures, but also, now that I am home, I am thrilled to wear it during the fall. It is made of a Zebrawood band and Maple face that seems to pull matching colors from whatever you are wearing. So whether you stick to traditional fall fashion colors or like to add pops of color, this watch will match it all. ThisFieldcrest series watch is priced at $139, sure to be budget friendly as the time ticks on and seasons continue to change, it will remain a classic piece in your accessories must haves repitoire.
