Value does not equal money. Keep that forever and never forget her.I took the pic while back but I struggled to write the post. I had been telling the story behind each watch I post and this one is bitter sweet.
This watch was a gift to me from the most special person ever in my life. She bought it for me when I finished up the first year of my master’s degree at Texas A&M with a 4.0 in the summer of 2015. I didn’t have any watches with gold on them and the gold Aggie ring is something I was very excited to receive. We both had to make sacrifices for me to go back to school including putting off our wedding. She was proud of me and the sacrifices were supposed to be the ticket to us having an even better life down the road.
We were walking in a crosswalk when she was killed by a guy who was texting and driving in December that year. I was with her and well, I’ll spare all the details but the doctors said she was gone instantly.
She was, is and will always be the love of my life and my motivation to keep getting better. She was my perfect woman, she changed my life for the best and she even loved my JK. I left it home in the garage with the top and doors off one business trip I took, and she drove it for the week (yes she drove a manual). She sent me a text saying she felt like such a badass I wasn’t going to get my Jeep back 😊
For a while I wore it every day, but now I wear it sparingly so nothing too bad happens to it. I know it’s not the most expensive watch, but it’s obviously priceless to me.
