Aaron isn't a fancy guy. He's a hard-working, level-headed, thrifty man who is good at pretty much anything. But just like me, he's not really fancy. Neither one of us likes regularly spending money, which is good considering the fact that we're both teachers and don't have a ton of money to blow. But I'll admit that Aaron loves to spoil me every now and then. He knows that I'm too cheap to buy myself nice things, so occasionally he will just treat me to them: a new Camry XLE with butt warmers, a Kendra Scott necklace I would never buy myself, and the gorgeous wedding ring that I still stare at on my finger.
All this to say, it's only fitting that I spoil him on occasion too, right? Case in point: I've been wanting to get Aaron a nice watch for some time now. A watch is a (pardon the pun) timeless gift for any guy, and I've always considered it a symbol of my love for him: a love that will never fade as the seconds, hours, and years tick by.
This Christmas, I decided that the time was right to bite the bullet and get Aaron a watch. He'd been wanting one for a few years, but especially since this was our last Christmas pre-kids, I wanted my hubby to know just how much he means to me: now and forever. I was just starting to formulate a scavenger hunt to our favorite jewelry store so he could pick one out, when the folks at JORD reached out to me. To say I was ecstatic is a slight understatement. I'd had my eye on JORD wood watches for a while now, and I could definitely see one looking perfect on Aaron's wrist.
I picked out his Dark Sandalwood & Emerald watch, from their Frankie Series, eager with excitement to see him open it on Christmas morning. I did let him in on the secret a little early so that we could make sure the custom fit was perfect for his wrist. On Christmas morning, he opened the beautiful wooden watch box and we were so impressed with the quality of his watch. I love how simple, yet stylish it is, and he loves just how lightweight it is (especially compared to most heavy metal watches). Aaron teaches woods, so a wood watch is pretty much perfect, right?
Now every time we head to church, formal events, or even out on a date night, Aaron is sure to wear his new watch. I love knowing that this gift from me is on his wrist: another symbol of my love and devotion to him, especially as we enter this new season of parenthood together. I know that it won't be easy, and that our lives are about to look a whole lot different, but I'm so excited that we're in it together. We're committed to keeping our marriage first, and to creating a healthy home for our kiddos with two parents who are still very much in love with each other. I'm looking forward to seeing Aaron's new watch on his wrist for years and years to come: a timeless reminder of that last Christmas when we were just a family of two!
