Sunday in the Valley

This photo shows a little dandelion admiring the view of the Salt Lake City Valley. Sometimes college is pretty stressful and you and your roommate need to escape the prison of the dorm room and walk around the mountains above campus. This photo may not be complicated, but it reminded me that beauty exists in the most simplistic ways and even when life seems stressful, there are more important things to think about. This photo is daily reminder that everyday needs to be appreciated even if it does not feel like a good day.
