The Blog a.k.a. The Community
Discover Happiness (Verb + Noun): The search for the state of being happy.
Discover Happiness is really a synonym for living and loving life. A bold and beautiful life! And there is really nothing better than doing so with your best friend. We started this blog because we wanted to share our mission for a happy, balanced life. This isn’t something you plan for, but midway through our twenties we’ve realized that pencil skirts and blazers aren’t everything, and a 9 to 5 job is not the end all be all. What’s more, as we are both newlyweds, our lives are in a state of change and are made up of many incredible moments. Taking the time to live conscientiously, fully and happily in these moments is the goal. There is no way to fail. It is not hard work. It is simply something we have to acknowledge before it slips away. That’s why we put ourselves out there. Sharing our adventures is part of how we do this. The other part is inspiring others to do the same. Discover Happiness with us.
The Bloggers a.k.a. The Best Friends
We are two twenty-somethings who fit the description of best friends of course! That means we share an unusual amount in common. By unusual we mean, we came into this world on the same day and in the same year, grew up in the same town and somehow like much of the same things. It could be called fate then that we met in university, lived together for a year, moved back to the same city and were in each other’s weddings! We’re both business grads, but we’re absolutely addicted to creativity. Our list of shared interests and hobbies keeps growing (we’re talking a very long list), while our differences make us unique! What is most special is we both thought of starting this blog because we think so much alike!

Hi I’m Danielle, you can find me in the kitchen, in a coffee shop, in a bookstore, on a yoga mat, on a hiking trail or on a pile of crafts! Twenty-five has been a major year for me; marrying an incredible and ambitious man, changing jobs and starting this blog! My life revolves around traveling to new places, balancing professional goals with my desire to hobby all the time and you guessed it, creating everyday adventures!

Hi I’m Dana! I’m a knitter, sewer, and craft-enthusiast, who has a great love for animals, farmers markets, and bakeries!
