Celebrating Our Time Together

I wish I could say that it doesn't take an anniversary or a holiday like Valentine's Day to remind me that love should be celebrated but in reality they are good reminders.  I think love and marriage should be celebrated because it's an accomplishment that our society doesn't embrace.  My husband and I just celebrated our 7 year anniversary and coming this January we have been together for 17 years (approximately 6230 days to today).  More than half of my life has been with this amazing man.  In our almost 17 years we've graduated high school and college, we've welcomed 10 nieces and nephews, we've started our careers, we've lost too many loved one, we've created two beautiful girls, and we've grown immensely.  
We took our anniversary as an opportunity to celebrate each other and our love and commitment.  As I've shared before I strongly believe in dating your spouse and spending special and quality time together.  We took a 24 hour stay-cation to Chuckchansi Resort which is just about 30 minutes away from our home.  We went up to mass where we got married in the foothills, then headed to the resort where we ate lunch by the pool and soaked up the sun.  In the afternoon I got to enjoy a massage and the steam room.  We had a fabulous dinner at the resort and then got in the jacuzzi before heading to bed.  The next morning after the 6:30 fire alarm wake up call we just relaxed in the room.  We finished our stay by hanging by the pool again.  I got to get some much needed reading time in on our little trip.

During our dinner we exchanged gifts.  I try to put some thought and meaning into the gifts I get Kevin as often as possible.  Not only does Kevin have a watch obsession but I also wanted something that would signify our time together.  When he looks at his watch he can think of all the years, months, weeks, days, hours, and minutes we've spent together.  Not all moments have been perfect but they make up our relationship and who we are as a couple today.  The watch I gave Kevin was from Jord which is a unique wood watch brand.  He was so excited with his gift and loved how different it was.  I was thrilled to see his excitement.

Jord has a saying that I love, "Moments are bigger than minutes and your watch should tell more than time."  Jord creates timepieces that work with modern lifestyle.  Their made for people who have somewhere to go not just somewhere to be.  Jord offers a wide variety of styles which include 8 different types of wood and there are men's, women's and unisex styles.
