Happiness is the little things. Like Noses. When you're walking through a neighborhood and suddenly the smell of freshly baked cookies hits you in the face, makes your mouth water, and instantly brings you back to memories of your mom baking cookies.
When it's pouring rain out and you huddle by the cracked-open window to smell the fresh air.
When you're visiting your parents and you wake up in the morning and smell breakfast cooking. Who cooks breakfast for you anymore?!
The illustration above is by me, drawn for a new e-book that is being launched today, called Happiness Is: A Little Book of Little Things by Matt Madeiro.
Matt posted on his blog that he was looking for people to illustrate his upcoming e-book, and dozens of people volunteered. So this book includes a lot of nice illustrations, and they really add to the text. Positive messages of happiness + volunteered illustrations drawn from the heart = something really special. And it's free. Check it out!
