Welcome! I’m Catherine. For me, it's important to stretch my mind, travel far, and always have a stash of dark chocolate.

Passing Time with Jord Wood's Unique Watches

Time is a funny thing. I always felt like my seven month engagement passed slower than the first year of marriage. Phoenix will be four months on Sunday, which is crazy to me. The first four months of pregnancy crawled at a snails pace. During this stage in pregnancy, we had just made our secret public but we still didn't know we were having a boy. Now, that Phoenix is here, time is moving even quicker. What's that saying? The days are long, but the years are short.

Despite wanting to wear a watch, I've never really owned one before. Well, except for athletic styles I had for sports camp. I've had my eye on certain ones over the years, but never quite bit the bullet. Because I am constantly carrying a baby, I'm careful about the jewelry I wear. It needs to be durable, gentle and grab proof. One reason I cut my hair shorter is because Phoenix started grabbing it by the handful!

When JORD reached out to me, I instantly gravitated towards their unique watches. Unlike, a metal watch (which I do aesthetically like), I'm not concerned about the wood scratching Phoenix. Since becoming a mother, out of necessity, my closet has gotten simpler. The zebrawood and maple women's watch I selected, is neutral enough to pair with almost everything I own!
