Project 52 | FORTY TWO

My computer and I are not friends right now. I am seriously catching up on seven months of just-getting-by. I have hibernated and am taking a break from a lot of things. Passing up a couple of really amazing opportunities, and right now I’m okay with that. Because…

E is sleeping. Like, consistently sleeping from 7:30ish pm to 7:30ish am, with an 11pm dreamfeed. I am crediting the egg yolks I just started feeding him, because it has now been a week since I started giving him 1/2 to a full one at dinnertime and this sleep pattern began the same day they did. And he’s full on crawling. FAST. & pulling up. & bear crawling. & even standing on his own. OMG. He’s still nursing 6-7 times a day and eating solid food too. So life has changed. Again. And now I am re-prioritizing.

I’m simplifying in a big way. (Have you read this? It’s great.) Still mostly single parenting through Thanksgiving. Trying to juggle all my responsibilities, and most of them are not sitting behind my computer, which I’m quite happy with.

This raising a child thing is fleeting.

A computer is not.

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.
