Do I love it? Do I hate it? I still don’t really know. There are so many things wrong with it, but this project is not about having perfect images. This project is about showing what this year of my life is like. & this is a very accurate depiction of what my life is like.

Camera was on the table at the baby shower. I’m running in the door. She’s running out the door. Husband picks up the camera & takes an accidental shot. & this is what we get. Totally unintentional…totally real life.

So in that sense…I absolutely love it.

I have always been intrigued by the in-between. I love how Tara Whitney does them. She catches magic. This is not magic, but this is real. Real enough for me to want to remember.

[& for those of you patiently waiting, I’ll be kicking off my “party planning” series on Monday!]

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.
