Things that inspire me to write #79: Tree Island Yogurt


I received an invitation to buy yogurt today and it made me smile–and not because I have a hankering for dairy.

Several years ago one of my best friends moved from Vancouver to pursue her and her husband’s dream of  starting their own yogurt brand–Tree Island Yogurt. It’s been a long and difficult haul for them both–but Scott and Merissa are finally up running and as of this Saturday, selling their wares at a farmer’s market on Vancouver Island.  From nothing, comes something: reminding me once more of the power of ideas, passion and a little dedication, whether the product be cultured dairy or 80 000 word manuscript about teenage ghosts.

So thank you Tree Island Yogurt, you inspire me.
