With summer right around the corner, I can’t help but be surprised yet again at how quickly time flies. Springtime has come and gone, all in the blink of an eye. This past month has been filled with so many spring activities — it was very rainy overall so each and every time the sun was shining and the sky was blue, I made sure to make the most of it! Luckily, I was home for a lot of May, so I got to spend my spring doing the things I love most.
One of my favorite spring activities is going to a nearby city’s Lilac Festival that they host. It’s held in a beautiful huge park with different gardens scattered around, with walking and running paths weaving throughout. Lilacs are one of my mom’s favorites, so it was fun to go and see those, along with all of the other flowers they had. There are food vendors and live music, and we were there on a beautiful sunny day — just perfect!
Another one of my favorite things to do in the springtime is to go to a huge garden store by my house. They are very seasonal, so during the holiday season you can get Christmas trees and wreaths, during the falltime you can find all different types of pumpkins, and, of course, during the warmer months there are acres and acres of flowers and different kinds of plants. It’s both inside and outside, and there is a café on site, so I love to grab a flavored lemonade and meander throughout the place picking out my favorite flowers to plant in our backyard.
The point of all this is to say that time sure does fly. I can’t believe the spring has already come and gone, but sure enough, it’s just about time for summer. To keep track of the time this spring, I’ve been keeping up with my new favorite timepiece. Today’s post is in partnership with Jord Watches, and they are too cool. These watches are made with all-natural and organic wood — so much more sustainable than your run-of-the-mill leather or metal watches. Since no grains are exactly alike, each watch is unique, which is an idea that I love.
You can shop my favorite one (the one I’m wearing in this post) here. And hello, the face is navy blue… Don’t even try to tell me this wasn’t made with me in mind, lol! They have both men’s and women’s, so if you’re shopping for yourself or a gift for someone else, you are covered!
Okay, now for the most exciting part of all of this: One of you is lucky enough to win $100 towards one of these watches! You can enter the giveaway here. Hint hint: You may or may not win $25 towards a watch if you’re not the grand prize winner 😉
