Hey there, CWS fam! In the spirit of Valentine’s Day, I wanted to do something different than I have done in the past. I want to take today to celebrate YOU.
I launched Coffee With Summer almost 5 years ago and I never would have dreamed that it would grow into the community that it is today. While I have worked tirelessly to grow CWS over the years, I need to give a lot of recognition to you. Yes, you.
Today, I want to open up and share a huge piece of my heart with you. I am constantly overwhelmed with gratefulness and love for all of you. I wouldn’t be where I am today if it wasn’t for you. So, I wanted to write a little open “love letter” to you. 🙂
TO THE SEASONED READER…
I know it’s not all of the time that I have a chance to express my gratitude and thanks for you. You play an integral role here at CWS and you need to know that! I couldn’t do any of what I do without you. You’re my inspiration when it comes to creating beautiful, eye-catching content. You serve as a constant reminder to myself to always try and to do my best. You are one of my anchors.
My career as a blogger isn’t an easy one, even though the pretty pictures and cohesive content may try to tell you otherwise. I’m constantly thrown into the wind of comparison and perfectionism, and I’m always under pressure to always be doing better and better. It can grow very discouraging some seasons and I’ve flirted with the feeling of defeat more times than I can count.
But, you always help me through every bit of it. Knowing that I have you to count on has pulled me out of many dark places, not just in blogging but also in my personal life.
You are always there to encourage me and lift me up, and for that, I am so grateful. From your genuine comments to the emails and DM’s I receive… it’s all fuel for me to keep on being here. Your support is something that I can’t thank you enough for.
You make me feel brave. You make me feel heard. You make me feel like I’m making a difference in this world. Thank you so much for sharing part of your heart with me.
I hope that you continue to stick around here in the CWS fam! It wouldn’t be the same with you.
I love you more than donuts! 😉 And that says a lot, haha!
TO THE NEW CWS READER:
If you just started becoming a reader of CWS in the past 6 months, you need to know that you’re important to me. You decided to show up, stick around, and be here for me. That speaks volumes about you! I don’t know how you first stumbled across my little corner of the internet here but I am so glad that you did and more importantly, that you chose to stick around. 🙂
As you’re settling in here, I hope you feel invited and wanted… because you are. I want you to feel like you have a special place here… because you do.
Thank you for sticking around and choosing to grow with me!
I love you more than donuts… and that says a lot! 😀
