Have you ever been thinking of a song and then you go to turn on the radio only to have that EXACT song be playing?
It kinda freaks you out a bit, right? At least it does me! And even though I know that ‘big brother’ is watching I’m still startled when something I looked at on Amazon suddenly shows up on the sidebar of my Facebook page.
So, when one day this summer I received an email from JORD Wood Watches, I’m not going to lie, I was a little suspicious.
I mean, how on earth did they know that I had been secretly wanting a wood watch? How could they have known that since I saw them for the first time in a super hip boutique downtown I couldn’t get them out of my mind? It’s a wood watch for goodness sake. WOOD! As in Pa built a Little House on the Prairie for his family kind of wood.
I decided not to question it. Not to be paranoid and wonder if the good folks from JORD had somehow tapped into my innermost thoughts.
I decided to just
greedily graciously accept it.
And oh friends, that moment when it arrived and I opened the package and saw the little wood box which I knew held my little wood watch and then the glorious smell of wood wafted right out at me like I had just cut down the tree myself (and then planted 20 more right there in that same spot of course!)?? That moment was magical.
I’m sure it had to be super similar to the feeling pa had when he finally stood back and admired that little house he built right there on the prairie. I mean, kinda similar. OK so not even remotely similar but still!
We can totally see how Pa would wear this watch though, am I right? Of course, he would probably make it himself since he can build a house and all. 😉
But, thankfully, I didn’t have to make this beautiful wood watch myself. I just get to wear the Fieldcrest Series Dark Sandalwood and not even break a sweat.
And guess what is better than me getting to wear a beautiful JORD Wood Watch? YOU getting to wear one too!
So be sure to come back tomorrow when I’ll be giving one away thanks to the generous folks at JORD!
In the meantime, I’m going to channel my inner Little House on the Prairie and go milk some cows.
Ok, so I’m actually going to go dip cookies into a glass of milk but that’s basically the same thing, right? 😉
