Love's Gentle Rock: A Valentine's Day Tribute to the Courting Board, Inspired by Chris and Kristi Outland

 

This Valentine's Day we embark on a journey through time and tradition, exploring the cherished legacy of the courting board—a symbol of romance, connection, and enduring love. At The Joggle Factory, our dedication to crafting these iconic benches is inspired by the heartfelt tale of Chris and Kristi, whose own love story mirrors the timeless allure of the joggling board.

The Origin of the Courting Board

The courting board, with its rhythmic sway and welcoming embrace, traces its roots back to the antebellum South, where grand estates and Southern hospitality set the stage for love to flourish. In this era, the joggling board emerged as a beloved fixture of courting rituals—a place where couples could gather, converse, and sway in sync with the beat of their hearts.

 

A Symbol of Romance

But the joggling board was more than just a bench—it was a sanctuary for love to blossom. Couples like Chris and Kristi would find solace in its gentle embrace, rocking back and forth as they shared dreams, aspirations, and stolen kisses. The timeless rhythm of the joggling board created an atmosphere of intimacy and connection, weaving a tapestry of romance that would endure through the ages.

 

Preserving a Tradition

Inspired by their own love story and the magic of the courting board, Chris and Kristi embarked on a mission to share this cherished tradition with the world. With dedication and passion, they founded The Joggle Factory, where each bench is lovingly handcrafted to capture the essence of Southern charm and hospitality. Today, their legacy lives on as couples young and old gather around these iconic benches, celebrating love's gentle rock.

 

Celebrating Love

 

As we reflect on the romance and nostalgia of the courting board this Valentine's Day, we pay tribute to the love story of Chris and Kristi—a testament to the beauty and magic of love's gentle rock. With a joggling board from The Joggle Factory, you can create your own love story—one that is inspired by the past, rooted in the present, and destined to endure for generations to come. 

 

Happy Valentine's Day!
Chris, Kristi, Wiley, Oliver & Luella Outland
