Mother's Day with Jord Watches + Giveaway

Mother's Day. I have to admit that for the past 5 years I have absolutely dreaded everything about this day. Having to look at all the posts on social media and see mothers with their babies filled me with the kind of heartache that is hard to describe. Looking back at the past year and all we did to get Harper home with us, first going through IVF and then Harper's NICU stay at birth, I am so grateful to get the chance to celebrate Mother's Day with my little girl. Finally becoming a mother has made me appreciate so much more all of the mother figures in my own life who sacrifice so much for their children no matter how old their children grow to be.

Watching other moms over the years I have realized that every mother is so unique. As Danica and I were deciding on what to include in Mother's Day gift guides this week we were approached by Jord Watches. We love Jord Watches because they are the perfect unique mother's day gift to celebrate how unique all mothers are. Jord Watches are unique in that they are made of wood! Every piece is absolutely gorgeous and would be the perfect gift to show how timeless, classy, and elegant your mother is. They can also be engraved to make your gift even more personalized and precious.

Danica and I chose the zebrawood and rose watch because hello...its pink. It came in a fabulous wooden box along with complimentary oil and polishing clothes. Another thing we noticed about Jord Watches that set them apart are that they are super lightweight. We both own several other brands of watches and I swear my wrist aches at the end of the day with how heavy they are. We definitely do not have that problem with our Jord Watch.

Continuing with the theme of celebrating Mother's Day, our friends at Jord Watches have kindly agreed to give away $100 store credit to one of our readers. And the best part of all...for those who never win giveaways (like me), Jord Watches is still giving everyone who enters $25 in credit to their store! The giveaway ends May 21, 2017 at 11:59 PM.

Home Tour: Danica's Laundry Room

Peach Rug: Target | Green Rug & Vase: Home Goods | Laundry Detergent Jar: Tai Pan | Washer & Dryer: Maytag 

My Laundry Room is a space that tends to collect a lot of clutter as it is right next to the mud room. We intended for it to serve this purpose when we decided to make it slightly bigger than the original home plan had intended. We love having the extra space to hang laundry to dry and the extra cabinet space is a life saver!

I go back and forth on whether or not I like the front load option! I wish I had the option to soak things in water like a top loader allows. What are your opinions on Front load vs. Top Load?

Thanks for reading!
