Thank you.

I do not usually bring politics to this blog, but today, I am going to forego the post I had planned & use my voice as a military wife to say…thank you.

Thank you to all of you brave men & women who fight the battle that no one here ever sees. Thank you to all of you brave men & women who support your families while a significant part of your family is halfway around the world.

This country is what it is because of our Armed Forces & the families that support them while they are away.

Thank you for your selfless service.

This is “us” at USAFA in 2003, the year before he graduated. We will be an active duty family until at least 2023. Probably longer.

(& yes, I used to be blonde)

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.
