{Happy 100th Blog Post Flourish + Giveaway!!!!}

It's hard to believe that today marks my 100th post on Flourish! When I started four months ago, I wasn’t sure what to expect thinking would anyone find my blog, let alone read it? And once they found it would they feel inspired by it? While it's still very much a work in progress, I have been inspired and encouraged by all of your gracious feedback. Whether you've just found my blog, or you've been a reader since the beginning, I want to say from the bottom of my heart, THANK YOU for taking time out of your day to listen to me and supporting my passion. This journey has been an enjoyable and rewarding one, and it's because of you that I've made it this far. I'm looking forward to the next several hundred thousand posts - so get ready for the ride. Thank you again, I love you all to pieces!

    This blog has inspired me more than you know. I love cruising through it just to see what else you have found to share. I would like to see some outside ideas since it is the season. Maybe even some outside entertaining ideas.
    Whatever you choose....I know I'll love!
    Congrats on the 100 posts!

  15. Jessica,

    I am a newer reader to you blog and have enjoyed spending that last week reading through almost all your posts. I think I may be addicted :) I am really inspired to make things happen and take some chances. I have a tendency to lust over other's style and things I see, but all the while playing it safe. Over the next 100 posts, I would like to see more ideas for vintage items you have purchased. Also, I love the DIYs!!!!

    Congratulations on your 100th post and I look forward to the next 100!
    - Elizabeth

  17. Jessica,

    Your blog is inspiring to so many! I would love to see more home decor ideas, suggestions. The tree you crafted for a client was amazingly original and striking. It was so unconventional and simple that I began thinking, " How can I do that?". Your style is timeless, thank you for sharing!
