Trina and Tara sent out another great theme for this month's photo challenge. This month's theme is dream. I love how this theme can hold many different meanings. My photo represents the unexpected beauty that dreams reveal to the dreamer. On a hike in the mountains of Southern Colorado, this aspen grove took my breath away. It was nearly unexpected because up until this point, I was hiking through a pretty dense forest made up of mostly pine trees, then everything opened up, sunlight filtered in and the aspen leaves danced in the warm summer breeze. May this beautiful moment in an aspen grove fall into my dreams time and time again. May your dreams be filled with beauty and hope.

This summer has been flying by with visitors and road trips. Earlier this summer, my husband and I drove to Las Vegas from Albuquerque. It was an interesting experience, however I'm not much of a city person. Thankfully there is a beautiful wilderness right outside of Las Vegas. I fell in love with this area so much that my husband and I returned nearly every day to explore a new little piece of this wilderness (even in the sweltering temperatures).
Tara Victoria and Latrina from Of Trees and Hues created a monthly photo challenge. The theme for this month is colour. Last month was the first month that I chose to participate. I'm so glad that I chose to participate because I was able to link up with other talented photographers.
When this challenge was released, I was in Las Vegas, Nevada with my husband. He was there for work and I was there to check another state off of my list and to experience something new. I snapped this shot of an art installation in the lobby of the Bellagio hotel. I loved how the light brought these hand blown glass sculptures to life. It was absolutely enchanting.
Hi! Welcome to A Year of Sunshine! This blog is a way to reflect on the beauty found in everyday life.
