Summar is a mom of three completing her Ph.D. in anthropology at Wayne State University. When not writing her dissertation, she writes about all things home life and motherhood on her blog The Cozy Home Chronicles. She believes coziness is a labor of love that can be built into simple everyday moments whether it’s crafting with your children or putting together a nourishing home-cooked meal. She’s especially passionate about sustainability and is always looking for ways to lessen her impact, including experimenting in the kitchen to make delicious plant-based versions of traditional Middle Eastern dishes.
