What inspired you to start blogging?

I started Flourish in Progress because I turned 30 in September 2010 and wanted to do something big to celebrate such a milestone birthday. I decided that my biggest distraction was the enormous amount of time I spent shopping. So, I gave up shopping for a year. I spent 7 years as a single mom before marrying my husband (we got married after dating for only 18 days). After I married Harv, I started shopping because I thought it would drastically increase my happiness. I realized my happiness came from my family and other aspects of my life, not the material gain, so I gave it up for a year to see what could happen to my life.

Flourish in Progress chronicles my year outside the mall. I'm seven months in.
