February Instagram Challenge Winners!

I cannot believe that February is almost gone! This month has completely flown by in a flurry of red, pink, glitter and Valentines. As much as I love a month that’s all about celebrating special people in your life, I’m excited to look forward to spring and everything March has to offer. But before we step into a new month, I wanted to share our favorites from the February Instagram Challenge (Declarations of Love)! In addition to great submissions from the community, Max, Amy and I created our own to share today (that’s my gold-obsessed declaration above). The month may be coming to a close, but it’s always the right time to appreciate and celebrate the things you love. Thanks so much to everyone who shared their declarations with us — and congratulations to our two winners! A special Valentine package from D*S will be on its way from our office soon . . . xo, grace

Thank you so much Grace! I loved following this hashtag on Instagram and seeing my old friend on D*S this morning brought the biggest smile to my face. <3
