10 Things That Make My Eyes Happy . . .

In honor of Purim, here are 10 things (of the millions - these are in no particular order nor are they (except kiddo) necessarily the top things that thrill me) that make me happy simply by crossing my line of sight. 

10)
The Kansas Flint Hills. Green, in winter, or during "burn" season - beautiful.
9)
Niagara. The falls are great. This painting, in The Corcoran's permanent
collection is actually better. Less misty. 
8)
Hot air balloons. I like watching them from flat to float. Beautiful stuff.
7)
The Chihuly "Chandelier" at the Wichita Art Museum.
This picture doesn't do the size or beauty justice.
6)
A nice plate of hummus. With the oil and spices/pine nuts on top. Yummy.
5)
Tommy Hilfiger clothing. Preppy or nothing. "The Hilfigers" campaign should
live on forever, in my never humble opinion. So much prep porn.
4)
The Whidbey. If I ever own again - it will be one of these.
3)
The Muppets. I love 'em. Always have. Always will.
2)
The US Capitol at night. The Mall is at its FINEST after dark. Amuhrikuh.

1)
This kid. Even at her worse moments. Jubilation on legs.
What makes you happy? Why does it?
