Family Adventures


My husband, 14 month old daughter, and I live within walking distance from one of the most beautiful parks in our area. It probably wouldn’t compare to many others in our country, to be honest, but to be right smack in the middle of one of the busiest shopping areas, worst traffic, and tree population dwindling daily for a new strip mall, it’s truly stunning.

It’s a 1.5 mile gravel trail that circles a beautiful lake. There are picnic tables, a playground, and multiple decks along the trail. On any given day there are families, joggers, and leashed pups galore! It truly makes me forget about the hustle and bustle of where we live. There something so refreshing about getting back to nature. Such beautiful simplicity to it.


On this particular day, we went directly after church, and enjoyed a nice family walk.


My husband had on his new favorite thing, his JORD watch. On this particular day he styled it with jeans and a plaid button down, but it is dressy enough for something more formal, and also casual enough that he wears it every day, as well.

When I visited the JORD website, I looked at both the women’s and men’s watches, as my hubby drooled over the shoulder. I knew I had to go with the men’s watch because he’d already fallen in love!


Upon getting the watch I was even more impressed. It is lightweight, but also sturdy. It has beautiful detail and even arrives in it’s own individual wooden box. And although this may sound a bit strange, it even smells beautiful. It’s genuinely made of wood, you guys, so it has a natural, Earthy smell to it.

    My husband and I miss going out for walks with the family. The temperatures were much milder in California but it’s going to cool off here soon. I hope. LOL. I also love the photos of the watch. Especially the one hanging on the branch!
