For some of you it’s Welcome! and for others, it’s Welcome Back! As some of you may know, this page was previously known as The Pink Palm Co. which was my first beloved blog. At the time, I was heavily inspired by my surroundings (tropics + all things girl) and felt that The Pink Palm Co. was the perfect name for a site in which I shared all of my thoughts and things that I loved.
I started my blog back in 2016 and remained pretty active on it for about a year. After Hurricane Harvey hit I had to slow down on creating content and posts. It wasn’t until we were settled in temporary housing several months after the hurricane that I could start publishing more. I had a few posts that I felt really proud of, but sort of went into a mental funk and lacked the creativity I once felt so full of. After months of no publishings, I quit blogging altogether.
Fast forward 6-7 months, we’re back home and have a great groove going for us. Our life is full of busyness yet somehow, I have a burning fire inside of me to write and share my thoughts again. One thing you guys need to know about me is that I am the type of person that likes to start over from scratch. This goes for just about anything. Took a month off from the gym? You can bet your squat booty that I am writing up an entirely new workout and meal guide for myself. Writing blog posts? UGH, don’t even get me started. I can start on a draft in one mood and go back to complete it in an entirely different one which causes me to select all + delete. I realize this isn’t always a positive characteristic, but here I am, laying out all my flaws on a white screen for you guys to see the real me. The point I am trying to make is that is that leaving my blog for a while led to starting over from a blank canvas. So, without further ado…
Welcome to The Sudduth Social!
Luckily it didn’t take long for me to feel connected to a name for the site, which took me by surprise because all throughout planning the re-launch, I anticipated the lengthiest process to be choosing a name. The Sudduth Social is pretty self explanatory, but to go a little more in depth, the name stemmed simply from my own last name plus one of the definitions of Social: (an informal social gathering). Essentially, my site is a collective gathering (via social media) of all things relating to myself, my thoughts, ideas, and passions + my family (The Sudduths). Hence, The Sudduth Social.
I can’t say enough how excited I am to have you here, following alongside my journey and simply caring enough about what runs through this complex, wild, imaginative brain of mine.
I hope you’re able to leave here with inspiration from my posts. Nothing is more fulfilling than knowing I may be working in the hearts and minds of others.
