Most of us rely on our cell phones for just about everything now. It feels like our whole LIFE is on there! Even something as simple as checking the time, which is why I like to wear a watch to keep me from picking it up for one.more.thing.
Staying present with my little one is so important. Sure, I check Instagram and text with my friends but all in all I try to minimize screen time of all types (tv, phone, ipad/laptop) because a) I don’t want to miss out on these moments with her! Soon enough they’ll just feel like a flash in time I wish I could get back to and b) she’s in ultimate exploration phase aka I’m-going-to-get-into-everything-and-probably-hurt-myself phase and c) I want to set a good example for her because Im sure she’ll already want techy gadgets way before I’m ready to give them to her, so the less I show her that’s what I’m doing, maybe that’s less that she’ll care (here’s to hoping!).
I’m usually pretty simple when it comes to jewelry, so a watch is sort of a stand-in for a bracelet too. I love that this one has swarovski crystal markers adding a little bit of bling, which I think is fun off-setting the earthiness (which I also love) of the real maple wood band. It’s the Cora Maple & Lavender style. The face is made out of sapphire crystal glass. I feel pretty fancy this being my first self-winding watch (versus battery operated).
I seriously need to get my husband one too so he doesn’t have to check his phone either all the time! The perfect Father’s Day present!!! The men’s watches are super cool looking too.
