From sunsets to flowers to puppies, there's a lot of beauty in the world, even in a pandemic. Keep sharing your Happy Moments!

IOWA, USA — Nature has given us a lot to look at lately!  From beautiful sunsets to distant storm clouds, awe-inspiring images of nature are always a summer treat here in Iowa.  Thanks for sharing with us!

The summer heat has people, and even puppies like three-month-old Oxbow, heading out on the water.

Betty in Norwalk wanted to remind all of us to stop and smell the roses once in a while! And even though you can't smell them through your screen, it's still a reminder that beauty can be found in the smallest of details around us.
