time is precious. time is a blessing and an enemy. i love my time with my friends and family. the moments where you get to make and create wonderful memories. the moments where you love where you are, what you’re doing, and savor the minutes, seconds that pass because life is so good. ya know what i mean? like when you are out to dinner somewhere in the city and the food is delicious, the libations are flowing, the conversations are fabulous and you are surrounded by such great people. those are joyous moments in time.

then there are the moments when you wish time would stand still. you look at your children and want them to stay little forever because they are so darn cute, innocent, and sweet. you want to preserve those interactions that are so full of love. when your daughter reaches for you to hold your hand, leans in for unsolicited amounts of kisses, and insists that you cuddle her on the couch.

or…and yes, i will go there; when you want time to freeze because you are getting older. you see your face with a few more wrinkles, lines, and spots. you notice a few more grey hairs. you notice your elbows are a bit more aged and your hands are not so smooth. that is when you want time to slow down and not take such a toll on your physic!

on a glass half full outlook {which i prefer}, time can be against us but really, it is giving us a life full of memories, children who will grow and continue a legacy, time gives you grandchildren whom you will love more than anything, time gives you more of life that you will appreciate and cherish. that’s what i love about the time given to us. what do we do with it and how to do we make the most of it? it’s precious, short, and i appreciate every second i am given.

what evokes these thoughts stem from my awesome new watch from JORD watches. timepieces can be beautiful, beautifully made, and are powerful symbols. i believe those descriptive words fit my gorgeous watch…the wood, the coloring, the craftsmanship. i am so excited to wear this pretty little piece on my wrist and have it remind me of life’s special moments every time i look at it!
