Show Him You Care with the *Limited Edition* Delmar Drift #JordWatch

This post was written on behalf of JORD Wooden Watches. All opinions are my own.

With constantly sick kids, battling my own … [Read more...]

Ben has repaired it many times over the years, but there was no saving it one last time. … [Read more...]
