    I walked by a billboard this evening, telling me that something wonderful is about to happen. And I believed it. And I so needed to believe that at exactly that moment.

    Just wanted to say thank you.

    I love these billboards. I pass by several on my morning commute along Hwy 30. What a great project infusing the world with this positivity. My children love them too. Thank you for this work!

    I adore these billboards. I drive past one of them every day and I’m dreading the day it changes to something commercial. I love having the billboard tell me I got this and I look fantastic. 😀
