what i wore // dusty hearts for renewed souls

 This week has been a whirlwind of endless thoughts and hopeless attempts to finish painting my room. Actually it should say 'failed attempts'. Anyways, I've been doing a lot of soul searching ever since I got on that 11-hour flight to Germany from San Francisco en route to Italy. I remember sitting there for a good hour writing every single thought at that very moment - I think they were showing 'Our Idiot Brother', so most likely I wrote something about Paul Rudd. If you have ever watched that movie, it's basically about three grown women and their idiot brother (he sells weed to a uniformed officer). He gets involved in the core parts of their lives after being away for so long and through all of his idiocy, which was actually just good ol' honesty, he fixes them and helps them to see the bigger picture in life.

So what the heck am I trying to say? I'm saying that even when we mess up or are feeling super down or just stumped on what to do next in life - in all of our messiness - good can come out of it. We can find our way to the good side, we can trade in our dusty hearts for renewed souls. We can find love in a hopeless place --- oh my goodness, did I just reference Rihanna? Anyways, it's true. So as a true testament to my emerging out of an "idiot laced situation", know that it does get better and that freedom is readily available.
As for these cute pictures, taken by my sister Kiani, I bought a really cute lace top and was dying to show it to you all! Chloe decided to jump in and be a model. She got a little mad when I told her that I needed to take a few pictures alone so I let her do some solo shots after I was done; that's a post for a different day.

My mom, sister and I are going to see The Vow tonight. I know Channing Tatum is good looking and all, but I really want to see it because I love Rachel McAdams! She is one of my favorite actresses of all time. Maybe I'll do a little movie review later...

Until then, Happy Thursday and have a great Aloha Friday, tomorrow!!
