he made it.

I don’t know the full story…as it’s been a whirlwind for my dear Nicole. What I know is this:

She told me he was on his way. But she hadn’t heard from him for a few days. He got out of Afghanistan early. He was going to miss the birth. For sure. But she would have her partner at some point during the first week.

& then…the doorbell rang. at midnight. four days after her due date.

The army got him HOME.

One was early. One was late. Everyone was perfectly on time.

Last night, I fell in love with birth photography.

Hi! Hello! I am Shawna, the founder of Styleberry Blog. This creative corner of the internet has become a learning haven for moms and creatives, offering a warm and encouraging nudge to those who wish to be better and do better, but often don't know where to start. From Decorating to DIY to Diapers and Paleo-ish Dishes, I strive to make the complicated simple and empower women to take action beyond their personal comfort zone. I subscribe to the Shine Theory & so strongly believe that we shine when the women around us shine and mutual support—lifting up instead of tearing down--will always be the culture here. Are you in? I hope so! Beyond the computer, I run Styleberry Creative where I work with clients to create low fuss, high function spaces that are pretty and practical in San Antonio, Texas and beyond. I LOVE making a house a home. My own studs out renovation is now complete and I am now back to working with clients. Please don't hesitate to drop me a line if you'd like to work together! I hope you’ll join me on this fun new adventure! Xo.
