40 Reasons To Choose Happiness

by Grace Bonney

unnamed (1)
For some reason, whenever cooler weather starts to set in I have a hard time not getting a little bit grumpy. Instead of enjoying the crisp air and changing leaves, I immediately start envisioning the pounds of dirty snow that are soon to crowd our blocks and all of the long walks trudging through muddy slush that Hope and I will inevitably take. But this year I’m committed to staying positive as the temperatures drop, starting with a little help from our favorite submissions in the #DSHappy hashtag challenge. All last month we gathered our favorite entries and today I’m sharing 40 of my favorite images from more than 4,000 submissions. From lush flower arrangements and stunning interiors to happy dogs and a room full of bunnies, these photos are bound to bring a smile to your face for the rest of the week. Thanks so much to everyone who took the time to share such special photos from their families, friends and personal lives. xo, grace
