You know those dreams you used to have as a child… with unicorns in the sky and the power of the wind beneath your wings? With magical trolls as your best friends and some pending evil to ward away.
I believe that part of our childhood fantasy lives on forever.
It inspires you, reminds you that there’s something special inside everyone, and drives you to keep dreaming – no matter how that dream may change with time. That part in our lives has a power of its own. A freedom. A moment where anything is possible, if only in our dreams.
I choose to live that reality, embracing the boundless journey on the flip side. Something about the ethereal beauty of certain things in this world transport me there. The sky at dusk, a clear full moon, staring into the crashing waves of the sea. The prolonged glance of a stranger or the melody of your favorite song.
The Icelandic creations of Aurum are one thing that does just that. The design is so delicate. Gracefully forming some of the most unique designs I’ve seen.
This featured sterling silver Swan ring had me dreaming from the start, and it’s hardly come off my finger since it’s arrived. The designer is clearly inspired, with an entire collection that reminds you of some ancient beauty or forgotten magic.
Time flies. But part of it stays still forever. Finding balance in both let’s you live a life somewhere in between reality and your not so distant dreams. With the magic of the holidays approaching, I hope you find time to live in that space, a day in your dreams. And here’s to being surrounded by the people that you take with you in both spaces.
