Ok, I am sure you all are dying to know why in the world this post is entitled, "Shanbo". There are a select few out there in this great big world who are privileged enough to know the story behind that. Well, I will tell you all its a nick name given to me by my very good friend, Lindsay. Whenever I wear this headband, I am called "Shanbo" ( not to be confused with Rambo). Rambo also wears a headband which is why I earned this brilliant nick name. But my headband is soooo much cuter than what he wears. Don't you think?

Pink cardigan: Last Chance ( Beautiful place);
Gray tank top: Hand me down (those are the best);
Sparkly rosebud headband: Spain ( I speak the truth).

Last year, I was blessed with the opportunity to travel to a couple cities in Spain with my family. I found this headband in a small accessories store in Madrid. I have to say, out of all the trinkets I got on that trip, this little headband is probably my favorite. It just makes me smile :)

"Delight yourself in the Lord, and He will give you the desires of your heart" - Psalm 37:4

You know what is so amazing about God? He loves us so much, that He longs to speak life to our hearts. He wants to give us the things that will make us smile, jump for joy and even giggle.

He is also a God of detail.
Every little detail.
Even a sparkly, rosebud headband :)

I can be having a rough day and just look up and see a beautiful sunset, or a friend surprises me with my favorite drink from Starbucks or I find just the perfect accessory for a new outfit. I believe God is in it all. He longs to give me the tiniest details of the desires of my heart. And that just makes me smile :)

Today as you take off for wherever it is that you are going, take time to notice the little things that make you smile. Maybe God is behind it speaking some life to your heart :)

Much love,

  3. What an encouraging blog today ladies, I am praying that these words break into the hearts of those who are struggling with who they are. The Father does delight in every detail of our lives, and takes great joy to show it. All we have to do is look. When we look for it, ohhh the joys we will find in the Father's love. Thank you for sharing your hearts! and the cute outfits :)
