Cupcakes & Champagne

Today when I was packing for my art class, my partner asked me what the champagne glasses were for. "For champagne, of course", I answered.
"Why are you taking champagne."
"To drink",
"Because we like it", I answered rather shocked and confused. Since when does one need to have an excuse to drink champagne? We don't need a reason to celebrate, but if we do I'm sure I could think of a few:
Because the sun was out
Because the children were at school
Because America just had Thanksgiving
Because we had stolen time to have creative play
Because we like bubbles and pretty things
Because everyday is worth celebrating in some small way, right?

Happy Thanksgiving to all our North American friends.
