a simple surprise + a giveaway!

I’ll save the super sappy post for our upcoming wedding anniversary, but I really just want to take a second to acknowledge how much I love my hardworking husband! He does so much for our little family and is so focused on making sure we all have everything we need. He’s been under a lot of stress lately with everything we have going on, so I wanted to surprise him with a little something.

I have been seeing these beautiful, high-quality wood watches online for quite some time now. I first saw them on Pinterest last year when browsing for gift ideas for Philip, but have really been seeing them all over social media the last few months. Honestly, he is so picky— but I knew this was something he would love! I mean, how could he not.

I decided on the Frankie series Dark Sandalwood and Smoke. I love that it’s casual enough for everyday wear, but still looks nice without being flashy. The neutral color will be easy to wear, too! Philip absolutely loves it and has already gotten a lot of wear out of it.

I was so happy to surprise my husband with this gorgeous timepiece, and I know it’s something he’ll wear for years to come. I am honored to have partnered with JORD + to be hosting a giveaway for a $100 shop credit! Not only that, but everyone who enters via the link below [ can also be found in my Instagram bio – @mrs.courtneycarter ] will receive a $25 shop credit just for entering! Both the $100 + $25 shop credits will be valid until September 26, 2017.
