Like this young man playing the bagpipes on a ferry to Vancouver Island:
Or this giant toadstool nestled in the grass:
Or this koi pond at a quirky indoor/outdoor market in Sedona, Arizona:
Or opening the refrigerator to discover that my son accidentally put the ice cream there instead of the freezer:
Because I'm a visual person, I like it when the unexpected catches my eye. But there are other things, too: a delicious bottle of bargain wine, a text from a friend I haven't heard from in a while, finding $20 in the pocket of my jeans, getting all the green lights on a trip across town.
Wishing you a bit of unexpected joy today!
My second choice for U is Utah, because I've seen some of the most amazing natural beauty there. This is a picture of Delicate Arch, which even looks like an upside-down letter U. Thanks, Utah!
