Often there is just not enough sunshine, rainbows and positivity in the world, so sometimes you’ve got to put some out there yourself. My incredible pal Sarah Hutchinson Burke (@thesecondmagpie) creates adorable little tags of optimism, some of which I have already happily distributed into the vast wilderness of Western Canada (you can see the photos of previous half full adventures here). Being the spoiled rotten girl that I am, I received a package from Sarah right before my move from 100 Mile, that was filled with more positive installation materials. Since arriving in the West Kootenays, I have been so excited to get out with these, hang them in unexpected places and hope to remind people to look on the bright side of life; now that four of these beautiful tags found new homes around the city of Castlegar, I think it’s safe to say that we’ve succeeded in making a few more people smile.

Even just posting these photos is making me smile! I hope others have been noticing and appreciating them too. Thanks again to Sarah for being a catalyst for positivity. I promise more half full adventures will be posted and shared with you soon.
