Welcome to the blog, The Summer Wife! My name is Jen. I’m a 30-something Midwest girl, living and loving life in Texas. I am an elementary teacher, wife and mom-to-be. I also love DIY projects & home decor.
Where, you might ask, did “The Summer Wife” come from? Years ago a co-worker mentioned her husband would call her “summer wife” when she was on summer break. I mentioned the nickname to my husband and family and now each June I become “The Summer Wife”.
As The Summer Wife I have time on sunny afternoons to explore my passions beyond the elementary classroom. I decorate, complete DIY projects, read, travel, try new recipes and even keep the house tidy!
Summer Wife is a little more sun-kissed and a little less stressed than “school year wife” and I look forward to this time of renewal each summer.
This summer I’m continuing one of my favorite hobbies… blogging! I would love to share my love of decor with you. And maybe I can bring a little summer sunshine into your home!

Hi! I am so glad a friend directed me to your blog. I am living vicariously through your projects 🙂 One of my favorites is your “T” wall art. Looking forward to reading more. Thanks for bringing some sunshine into my day.

I’m so glad your friend directed you this way too! Thanks for reading the blog! 🙂
Hey this is a weird question, or statement I guess, but my maiden name was Tepper!! I’m from Missouri, not to many of us so I was wondering if there was a connection!
Andrea, that is too funny! 🙂 My maiden name was O’Neil (from St. Louis) and my husband’s family is from Texas, so probably no relation. But I am loving having the name Tepper now!
