meet your mad hatter mama
Welcome to PasoRoblesMom.com. As a mother of two adventurous kiddos I find myself needing a great trucker hat to wear to the beach, water park, gym, concert, sporting event, school drop off or any indoor/outdoor gathering. Hats are fun and keep you cool. They make incredibly thoughtful and unique gifts. Custom snapbacks are awesome to give as a birthday present, rock with a bachelorette party, spoil a newlywed couple, promote a girl scout troop or create coordinating swag for a fun family themed vacation. Any idea you can come up with is a great reason to sport a trucker hat made with love with people you love.
I like to create and laugh with and without my kids. Crafting and creating are a common theme around our home. My husband is an excellent father, furniture designer and fabricator, a welder, a private chef and a wine maker. He is also the Facilities Operations Manager for Sextant Wines, a beautiful and blossoming Paso Robles Winery. Our kids spend a lot time making art projects, building (legos or furniture with dad) and designing to their hearts desire. They also like helping me make and customize hats in my office. We truly enjoy this wild adventure as a creative family. We love to laugh as we go and we prefer to not take life too seriously.
I started making custom trucker hats for friends and family and the requests started coming in. I offer local businesses and customers the option to pick and customize the hat of their dreams. One snapback hat at a time. There is no minimum required to get my attention. Feel free to email me your ideas or a jpeg. and I'll create something especially for you. You may also pick a hat design from my shop gallery and have fun selecting the colors and details that make it unique to you. Thank you for checking out my website. I look forward to making you something special.
I never imagined this would be my journey. 2017 was brutal and became a year I'll never forget. I was told several days before Christmas (2016) that I had a large tumor growing rapidly in my colon. After numerous tests, daily phone calls, many doctors appointments, sleepless nights and endless questions I underwent Colon Resection Surgery on January 26th 2017. I fought like hell to get to a qualified specialist at USC. They removed the tumor, a good amount of my intestines, 30 lymph nodes and confirmed it was in fact Stage 1 Cancer. At 37, I became a Colon Cancer Survivor. I found out through genetic counseling 6 months later that I have a mutation on my Chek2 gene. Unfortunately I am more prone to cancer then the average person. Specifically breast cancer so my medical "adventure" is not over just yet. In August 2018 I chose to have a prophylactic double mastectomy to ensure breast cancer would not affect my family further down the road. Recovery from this surgery is slow and once again I'm learning to take healing day by day and I am adjusting to my new normal. I am happy to share my story of courage, intuition, persistence and standing up for my health with others. I'm grateful for my family, friends and fellow hat lovers that have raised me up when I needed it most. I hope to do the same for others. Feel free to contact me about hats or health concerns! Much Love, Summer
