The first Girls teaser for the third season is technically labeled an "in production tease" so it may not be fair to read too many plot details into it. That said, this certainly looks like a happier Girls than how we left it. 

The teaser consists of a series of artsy (Instagram-y?) photos of the cast. Hannah/Lena hugs Adam/Adam. Shoshanna/Zosia has some strange updo. Marnie/Allison poses in a bikini. Jessa/Jemima looks vaguely over it. Et cetera. There is not a Q-tip in sight, and the show is filming at the beach for one reason or another. 

Perhaps the most exciting thing about the trailer is that it features Andrew Rannells, who plays Hannh's erstwhile roommate, sometimes coke partner Elijah, heavily. We're glad to see him back. But, alas, we have to wait until 2014.
