There was a lot that I was looking forward to when Seth and I got married. Moving out of our parents houses and into our own space. Not having to say goodbye at the end of every day. Being able to do life together. But I think that the most exciting of those was watching my husband turn into a father.
As you’ll know if you have read this blog for any length of time, having babies was huge for me. I was broody for as long as I could remember. But my husband, although he wanted kids, was not as desperate as I was. It wasn’t the same kind of deep yearning that I had. Or at least, it wasn’t already there only a year after getting hitched.
When we got pregnant with Kyla we were obviously both excited for the birth. Though it was easier for me to feel like a parent when peanut was still growing in my tummy, it was harder for Seth. But wow. Guys, I remember so distinctly when they placed Kyla in Seth’s arms. The way he held her, I could just tell that he was willing to give up anything to protect her. Seeing the tears in his eyes as he gazed at his daughter was a moment I will never forget. Since then I have watched him form the same love for Riya and Knox and I am so proud to have him to help me parent our children.
When the lovely folks at Thomas Sabo got in touch with me to review their new range of jewellery and watches I was all in. The first thing I noticed as I was looking drooling through their lookbook, was the men’s watches. They had a presence that really struck me and so instead of using this opportunity to spoil myself, I wanted to spoil the man who has my heart. Because let’s face it, he totally deserves it after putting up with me for so many years and still loving me despite my numerous flaws. And it’s Father’s Day tomorrow and I wanted to show him how much it means to me that he is a hands on Dad who is involved in his kids lives.
Also, Seth currently has a sports watch, which is super practical but kind of loses the impact that a nice dress watch has. I love a good watch. It’s super attractive. So with this in mind, we focused specifically on the Rebel at Heart range within Thomas Sabo and there were so many trendy options to choose from it took us a while to decide which one we loved the most.
The watch that Seth chose has a really sophisticated but trendy feel to it. I love the way it looks when he’s dressed up for work, it’s the perfect piece to complete his work wardrobe. The strap is a smidge shinier than we had anticipated when we ordered it but the more I see it, the more I like it.
