If you could describe happiness in one word, what would it be? What about in one photo?
In honor of International Happiness Day earlier this month, we asked readers to snap a shot of what brings them glee. Whether it’s a little solitude on a glistening beach or the company of an energetic pup, the photos below prove that happiness is truly as unique as we are. Take a look at some of the joyful images and tell us in the comments what happiness is to you.
