"I own three watches and a watch is part of my every day attire. It is also easier to look at a watch for me, rather than reach for my phone. It also adds a touch of class I think, as it is becoming a less popular thing to wear."

A Tattoo To Remind Me

Nothing profound I just felt the need to let everyone know I had a great night with my girls. They're great kids and I'm having a moment where I realize how lucky I am.
