Creative Tuesdays - Everyday Happiness

Hello!
It's Tuesday and that means it's time for Creative Tuesdays!

The theme this week is Everyday Happiness....
So, of course when I read that my first reaction was 
YES, for me....a visit to Starbucks and a Venti Skim Misto - 
 that's everyday happiness to this lady....
But, then I got to thinking about another type of happiness...and that's LOVE....

My dear friend of 30 years is about to have her first baby....and I thought about her and the 
Everyday Happiness that little Liam will bring her when he arrives....any day now...
I remember how much I loved holding my little babies - their softness, their baby smell and their baby cheeks were just like a slice of heaven...

So, I drew up a quick little sketch and am dedicating it to my friend Christine
 and her future Everyday Happiness....

Ah, love the name, Liam. Sweet....as indeed are baby's, especially when peaceful! I'm so with you. Loved mine too. Hee--calming pale blue--good choice there, Heather. GREAT addition here with a lovely sentiment too.

And have to chuckle as, yes, I did rather expect to see some actual LATTE art..a la SB! :)

Oh what a sweet and precious thought for your friend and the new blessing coming soon. Oh my the drawing is to touching too.

You can always have a starbucks, can't always have a baby to celebrate.

Oh, this was a very nice gesture. and you're absolutely right, children, love and family are so dear and should be the ultimate source of everyday happiness. Terrific post. Thanks
