In just a few short hours, or should I say long hours, we will be embarking on our first International adventure as a family! I cannot wait to celebrate Thanksgiving with my family members abroad. Having my brother and his family live in China is not easy; we miss the normalcy of having them around and miss our children doing life together. I miss family dinners and the laughter that was shared around the table. So, this Thanksgiving will be extra special, not just because I am going to be eating Chinese food instead of turkey, but because I will be making fond memories with my favorite people on the planet. Isn’t that what Thanksgiving is all about? No matter what time zone we are in, or if we have to Face Time people to the table, let us gather with those that we love and be thankful for all of the good things that are in this world.
Speaking of time zones, we will be flying over the International Date Line and losing all track of time over the next few days. Isn’t is crazy that we legitimately lose a whole entire day due to travel? We leave on a Thursday and arrive on Saturday. What?! That didn’t seem like such a big deal in the past, but my nerves are on high-alert thinking about what this will do to my kids. To keep us on track, I am thankful for watches, cell phones, and any device that will tell me what time of day it is!
JORD Wood Watches was kind enough to send me a watch for our travels, and I must say, I am impressed! From the packaging to the style, JORD is a class act. In the past, wood watches haven’t attracted my attention because they were always a little bland, if you will. But, when I saw the Fall collection for JORD, I fell in love! The Frankie Dark Sandalwood and Emerald watch that I chose is simply stunning. It is customized to fit your wrist size and comes with extra links in case you need them in the future. I love the gold and emerald face paired with the dark, rich wood band, and no, I wasn’t paid to say that. In fact, I have never been paid for my words. The truth is that I stand behind products and companies that I love, and this is one of them!
