Am I really going to write this again? I am. Because I am feeling it again.

This blog. This crazy blog. I love it. I love writing it. I love sharing. I love inspiring. I love teaching you how to enjoy & do the things I care about.

But I love my babies more.

I could be [even more] sleep deprived and stay up at night to write. I could be putting them in front of the TV/iPad so I could write. I could be hiring help so I could write.

But I don’t want to.

I want to be there. I want them to want to be with me the same way I want to be with them.

& although this blog has received an insane amount of traffic since my sweet little boy was born, I just can’t let google analytics change my mind about my priorities.

I have helpful and relevant and useful and encouraging things to share. & I will continue to do just that.

But my babies will only be little once.

So as soon as I start sleeping more and they start doing the same, then I will return to this lovely little place & get it back to the dynamic place it was before we became a family of four.

I hope you’ll understand.

If you are the kind of soul I want along for this ride, I know you will.

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.
