Deep Breath

The air up in the mountains, albeit thin, is crisp and clean – perfect for taking some deep breaths. I took a trip up to Big Bear Lake last weekend for some much needed fresh air and reflection.

While on a quick jaunt through the woods around Boulder Bay, I was delighted to break out one of my favorite fall staples – a structured wool peacoat.

But that coat isn’t the star of this post. I am in love with this beautiful bent wood ring that my friend Danial of Zebrano Wood Craft made especially for me. This lovely combination of walnut burl wood and maple is a conversation starter for sure.
