A Unique Wooden Watch for Your Galentine | One To Nothin'

A Unique Wooden Watch for Your Galentine

Happy 2018, friends! How do you feel about new year's resolutions? I have mixed feelings. On the one hand, I'm all about setting goals and dedicating the beginning of the year to self-reflection and self-improvement is a great habit. On the other hand, I swore I'd see my abs in 2017 (HA!). And as for the other things I wanted to accomplish in 2017... I can't remember what they were. And therein lies the problem. They probably had to do with reading more (I did), traveling more (oh hey, I still have to tell you guys about Vietnam), and getting in shape.

So, I've been mulling this over lately and I realized that a lot of the resolving to do more or less of things for me doesn't necessarily happen in January. It happens whenever I realize there's a need for it. Without much documenting or conscious decision-making, I resolved to be more present. It's resulted in far fewer Instagram posts, obviously fewer blog posts, and a lot more connecting with humans. I rely on my phone daily for entertainment, news, weather forecasts, directions (I seriously couldn't function without Google maps), and, of course, the time. It's my security blanket when I don't know what to do with my hands or eyes, and while sometimes it's a welcome distraction, other times it's a crutch. It was time to put it down, so for the past few months I've left my phone in my backpack or at home on hikes, at concerts, and walks with Zig.

It's been great stopping to smell the flowers and all, but I realized that not knowing the time = anxiety, aka the opposite of the desired effect. I haven't worn a wrist watch (or many accessories in general...) in years, so when JORD asked if I'd like to try one of their gorgeous wooden watches and give you guys a chance to win $100 toward your own, I was psyched. I love the beautiful, hand-carved details and the wood grain makes a great neutral that goes with lots of patterns, textures and colors. I chose the Frankie Series in Zebrawood and Champagne because of its minimalist design and elegant color scheme. But there are tons of styles to choose from, including men's styles in case you're looking to gift one for Valentine's Day--this single lady, however, will be celebrating Galentine's Day only this year.

I love the way it looks, and it actually fits my child-size wrist because they customize the wristband to your measurements. Big win.

Besides the whole disconnect to reconnect thing, my goals for this year include:
  • FINALLY getting conversationally fluent in Spanish
  • Becoming a big sister/mentor to a local child 
  • Paying off my credit cards
  • Going on another international trip 
Doable, no? And if I happen to be able to see my abs in 2018, that'll just be a nice little bonus.
