A Brief Blog Profile: Flourish in Progress
by Thomas Hynes
First off, Flourish in Progress is hilarious. And while, I'm not the type of person to use the term "LOL" often or at all, I will say I literally laughed out loud a few times while reading this. That might be because this mom, like my own, curses like a sailor. The blog was started on the author's 30th birthday as a way to chronicle her year-long experiment to quit shopping . (Ok. That is decidedly not at all like my mom.) That year has passed and today she blogs about her family, food, relationship advice and just about anything else that pops into her head.
Also, now that the year-long challenge is completed, Flourish in Progress features "Monday Dares" in its place. This week's challenge is for women to make an assessment of their man. And here, specifically with questions #4 and #5, you can see why I keep laughing out loud. And in this other challenge, she dares herself to get her 'groove on.' But more importantly, at least to me, she includes a cartoon from Married to the Sea in the post. Ok. That settles it. I love this mommy blogger. And yeah, I think the post is about fitness. But, it doesn't matter. Married to the Sea is amazing. And I love that she used it on her blog.
Other dares include saying no to people and telling the truth. There's even one where she dares herself to win the lottery. Each dare has about as many curse words as you'd expect from a 12-year-old boy, or from a mom who is doing the best she can at being her very best. Honestly. I could read this blog all day. I strongly suggest you do the same.
