I spent my childhood in Columbus, Indiana with a population of only 40,000 people. After spending the previous 10 years in much larger cities, I’ve had time to see the benefits and disadvantages of growing up in a small town.
Now that I have a son, I’ve spent a lot of time thinking about how I can give him the best childhood possible. Making sure he has all the opportunities I had as a kid not only to learn, but to get out, explore, and truly enjoy his life. Aside from your parents, the environment you grow up in has a significant impact on who you will become, so we’ve spent a lot of time trying to find the right environment for him, while allowing us to live where we can thrive too.
One of my big goals in life is to live on a lake. It was such a great atmosphere to grow up in, and I’d like for Noah to have that as well. I have so many memories of building sand castles, swimming, learning to ski, snorkel, wakeboard, and whipping across the waves on a tube. I don’t think I would be the same person had I not grown up where I did, but I guess that is the case for everyone 🙂
The watch I’m wearing (left above) is the Sawyer in Zebrawood & Obsidian by Jord,. I really like the chronograph face, that it’s automatic (you’ll never run out of battery), and that IT’S MADE OF WOOD. It’s extremely comfortable to wear, and I’ve received more comments on this watch than any others I’ve worn.
If you’re looking for a smaller one, I also have the Dover Wood Watch by Jord. It has a skeleton face, so you can see all of the inner moving pieces, and it’s automatic as well.
Thanks for checking in.
