A Father's Gift of Time and a Giveaway!

I have partnered with Jord for this post and giveaway. All expressed opinions are 100% my own. Full Disclosure.

One of the best things about my husband, is the amount of time that he spends with our children. He not only loves and adores them, but goes out of his way to do special things with them often. One thing that they currently enjoy is geocaching. They find special "treasure boxes" hidden by other geocachers all over, then exchange little items for ones that they find inside. Both Hazel and Owen love this, but I think the most important part is the time they spend out exploring with their dad.
I knew I wanted to get Josh a unique Father's Day gift this year that fit his personality. He loves watches and time pieces (he actually makes Steampunk jewelry using vintage watch and pocket watch pieces), so I knew the wood watches from Jord would be a great gift idea for him.

 Father's Day Gift Idea
The kids were very excited to give their gift to him and couldn't wait till Father's Day! We chose the Dark Sandalwood and Blue Carbon watch from the Delmar Series. I loved the dark wood tones and square face. I knew it would be a really unique piece to fit his style.

Owen had the awesome idea that we should hide it in our yard like the caches they go out and find, so we did! Back behind the old willow tree in the far end of our yard.
 Unique Father's Day Gift
The packaging itself was stunning, starting with the beautiful wooden box it arrived in. Hazel and Owen led him straight to it when he arrived home...they were too excited to let him search for it himself!
 Father's Day Watch Gift
He tried it on right away and it fit like a glove. I'm glad we were able to find a unique gift for Father's Day that he truly likes! Some years I know I haven't done so good ;)
 Jord Wood Watch Father's Day Gift
Father's Day can be a really wonderful day to celebrate those dads who take the time to be with their children, who go out of their way to do special things with them, who get on the floor and play and act silly, who can laugh at themselves and enjoy the wonders of life as their little children do. I've learned that from watching my husband. It's a beautiful kind of love that I am so glad they will always know.
Time is a funny thing when you have kids. During the hard times...when they don't sleep through the night, are teething, going through the tough parts of growing up, it can feel like it goes so slow, but then you look back and wonder where the time went?

I am so proud to have a husband that spends so much time with his children (and me!) that we can look back without regret for how we spent the days. Living, loving, growing, learning, wondering, exploring, making memories. It's the gift of time that won't soon be forgotten, even when it goes by so fast.
