CWS launched in July of 2014 when I decided that it was finally time to get serious about my love for blogging and connecting with others. Since then, CWS has grown into a place that I can always turn to in every season as I share my life and heart… and even better, it’s a community where we’re all growing together. So, if you are all about growing and experiencing life with arms wide open, you are in the right place. I’m stoked that you’re here, friend!
I’m what you’d call a “lifestyle blogger,” not that I really get too crazy with the label. 😉 The content that I create is always created from a place of intentionality and my real, everyday life. I want Coffee With Summer to be a community that thrives and uplifts no matter the conversation. I will always keep things raw and real here. So, whether I’m sharing about the mountaintops or of the valleys of life, it’s my heart to always do so in an honest way. It’s my hope that here you’ll find a safe space to breathe and refresh yourself.
– TOP CATEGORIES YOU’LL FIND HERE AT CWS –
PRACTICAL SELF-CARE & PERSONAL GROWTH: Self-care and personal growth are both topics that I’m hugely passionate about. It’s one of my goals to help others join in on that passion for themselves because I believe that we should never shut ourselves off from growth. Self-care is not selfish or a luxury. Self-care is essential. Honest self-improvement is essential. If you’re wanting to better develop your self-care practices and grow into all that you can be… then you, my friend, are in the right place!
REAL MOTHERHOOD: It’s funny. I used to say that I’d never become a “mommy blogger” because of the negative connotations that are sadly out there. Yet, here I am, sharing about my motherhood journey and loving every single moment of it. I became a mama on 2/21/2020 when my daughter, Taya, was born. Ever since it’s been impossible to not share about this new life stage – one that I had always dreamed of. From pregnancy, postpartum, and baby products, all of way to the joyful messiness in between, I’ll be sharing it all. Mommin’ ain’t easy but it is the most beautiful journey and I’m so grateful for it.
AFFORDABLE LIFESTYLE: I’m all about a good deal and aiming for intentionality in every aspect of my life. You’re going to find a little bit of beauty, style, travel, and other life stuff here at CWS. Oh, and for my other blogger friends out there, there will be the occasional blogging tips content, too.
I’m Summer, the founder of Coffee With Summer! I’m a full-time blogger and I’m loving every bit of it. Never in a million years did I think that blogging would become my professional career, but here I am today, doing what I love to do. I’m so grateful for it!
I am a Massachusetts native, who’s now living in Central Pennsylvania near Hershey. I went to bible college outside of Philadelphia and have lived in PA ever since. My husband, Michael, and I have been married for 5 years as of June 26th. Doing life with him is the best and it’s even more fun now with Taya in our life. 🙂
SOME FUN FACTS ABOUT ME:
- I love Jesus with all that I am.
- I’m an INFJ.
- I’m short & petite at just 4’11” but what I lack in height, I make up for in sass and real talk. 😉
- I’m an introvert, yet surprisingly extroverted online.
- I mostly wear athleisure and casual style. Comfy & cute is what I’m all about.
- I have 10 tattoos (yep, for real) and I’m always in the mood for more.
- Buy me a plane ticket and I’ll love you forever.
I am after a life full of authenticity, grace, truth… and lots of coffee.
I am so glad that you’re here! I hope you’ll grab a cup and stay awhile.
