I don’t often talk much about one of the most important people in my life. He was there before the boys and he is one of my biggest cheerleaders. He is my companion and my partner for life. This is Chase, my husband.
This year marks a special one in our marriage. Like many (dare I say ALL) marriages, ours is not easy. We fight, we argue, we complain but we love. Through it all we love. Last year we were coming out of one of the hardest years of our marriage yet, through our faith in the Lord, we have come out of it stronger. Our relationship is by no means perfect, we are still learning, but keeping God at the center has brought us to a new, more understanding place. We are now coming into our best year of marriage.
November 20, 2017 will mark our seventh anniversary and I never really thought much about the seventh year until recently. Seven, in biblical terms, is a significant number. Many sources I’ve found say that it symbolizes completion or divine perfection. We are by no means divine or perfect and we certainly aren’t complete, but I love knowing that it is a complete number for our God. It is a good number, a holy number. So this year I wanted to do something special.
In November we will be doing a photoshoot that I can hardly wait for but in the mean time, I wanted Chase to have something special to celebrate our time together. Enter this gorgeous piece by JORD. Chase is not one for jewelry, but he loves watches. He likes them mainly just for practical purposes but he has to like the way they look too. When I showed him the Conway collection from JORD, I knew it would be the perfect fit. He loves the wooden body and darker colors. JORD’s wooden watches come in a variety of finishes that are beautiful but he was definitely sold with the darker options like his piece in sandalwood.
Now, let’s talk about wardrobe. Chase’s dark piece doesn’t exactly scream spring but it definitely goes with just about everything he owns. He does have a neon orange fishing shirt (that I never let him wear!) that I don’t think would go very well, but that’s about it! He can also attest that, while great for looks, it holds up during play time too.
He loves showing his new wooden watch off and I love seeing him wear it. And while this year is pretty special for us, I look forward to many more!
