BUT FIRST, 90s RAP

Fearlessness is overrated. Let me explain. Since I was 4-feet-something with ringlets in my hair and velvet platform shoes on my feet, I have been plagued by bouts of anxiety. Sometimes it is so extreme that I just want to curl up in bed and hide under the covers – yes, this still happens in your 30s so if you were born after 1990, you have that to look forward to! Other times, it lingers in the background like a bad habit and you do everything you can to get through the day without it hovering over you like a dark cloud. That might sound like a melodramatic depiction, but I promise you, the sentiment is accurate!

FRIENDS. I know it has been a hot minute and I am so sorry for leaving you hanging.  I think it’s only fair that I catch you up on what we have been up to during Summer Seventeen.  Doesn’t quite have the same ring to it as Summer Sixteen – Drake truly is a genius – but it was lit nonetheless.  Read More

Though these things did bring immense joy to my world, as well as a little chaos, they are not responsible for why I have been absent from suddhara.com. That is much harder to type on paper.

Ankle Straps are the New Black

Today is my 29th birthday – the last good birthday before I turn the big 3-0.  Birthdays are always a time of reflection and since I am not spending this year crying in the shower (reserving that activity for next year), I have been thinking a lot about my friends, my family, and how much has changed since I was splashing around in the inflatable pool in my parents’ front yard.  See below for photo evidence.

It is officially summertime and I am very much excited about what that means for us in Texas:  extremely high temperatures and watermelon freezes from the Teahouse.
