I often get asked how I “do it all.” & the truth is…I don’t. I make choices. I let go of what doesn’t matter to me & cling tight to what does. But one thing that really affects my productivity is my schedule. I can pretty comfortably survive on about 6-6.5 hours of sleep, just so long as I get to sleep past eight am. If you’re an avid reader of this blog, you know I am a major night owl (up until about 2am usually) but I am also a morning sleeper. & thank goodness my girl is too. I absolutely dread the day where she has to get up for school & get there by 730. I am just not wired for that. I sleep 2-8ish. & that works for us…but someday it won’t!

Lately, my girl has followed my sleep patterns. Despite getting tucked in at eight, she’s reading and playing and all over her room (though gated in) and awake until about ten. I absolutely love going upstairs & seeing how I find her. She’s been asleep on the floor lately…sometimes missing clothing (or adding it!) and often surrounded by babies & books. It’s pretty funny. I hope someday she finds my iphone snaps as amusing as I do. (& don’t worry…I always carry her back into bed & tuck her in…again.)

Oh, to be two.

& ’cause I know you’ll ask, her room details can be found here: the nursery & nursery details. The bed was her crib that we converted. & her amazing duvet & shams are from Land of Nod & are on sale now! There are some great deals to be had here:

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.
