Being True

As I'm sitting here in linen shorts, literally on the floor in front of my air conditioner, I'm thinking about the new job I'll be starting next week. I'm thinking about how I get to "start over" and re-create who I want to be. However, it's as soon as I get to that line, "how I want to be," that I start wondering, why am I always trying to create something new?

JORD Watches — Your New Fave Piece

It's probably no surprise to some of my internet friends, but I was starting to get curious as more and more guys and gals were posting their collaboration stories with JORD Watches. I first noticed them about three months or so ago when it seemed like everyone was sporting their absolutely gorgeous wooden watches.

I've now been wearing my gorgeous Frankie watch for over 10 days now and I've received so many compliments. Whether busy at the hospital or hiking through humid forests in the northwest, this beautiful watch keeps me on track and on time. I love that this watch is up for any weather and anything.
