‘Forever Mine’ is a dream-soaked reflection on the free-flowing creativity of youth. A gentle reminder to us all of the importance of being free to play, let your imagination run wild and be yourself, the way you did as a child.
Taking us back to the days when we collected prized trinkets, storing them safely away in boxes under beds. Charms that mean nothing to some, but to others, are powerful symbols and physical reminders of those precious days when the simple things gave us the most joy.
