20 Inspiring, Smile-Inducing Photos Of The Single Best Moments Of People’s Lives

I actually physically can’t stop smiling after looking at these.

Sports Illustrated writer Richard Deitsch had a great idea last night on Twitter.

Inspired by a photograph of a fellow member of the sport media celebrating with his older brother after his bro won an NCAA hockey championship at Yale, Deitsch asked “How many of you have a photograph of the single best moment of your life? The responses will make your heart melt. Deitsch FTW.
