Aloha is....standing out when everyone else is trying to fit in. Today, I received this beautiful surprise in the mail - an ornament as unique and different as the person who gifted it to me. My friend, Ivana, has traveled the world - and, by world I mean 47 countries! She appreciates and cherishes the beauty, wisdom, kindness and compassion she witnesses in those she meets around the world and carries it wherever she goes. Even though she's unable to travel now, she still managed to find something that reflects her eye for unique beauty with this shell ornament. So, to be thought of with this kind gesture is extremely special to me.
