adventures in Brooklyn, vol. 6

The long, dark, and extremely chilly days of late autumn/early winter are finally creeping into the city.  Sunny days are shorter – and fewer between – as time moves forward towards the winter solstice, and most mornings I wake up before the sun, listening to one of my favorite sounds: the clinging and clanging of…

adventures in Brooklyn, vol. 5

I really need to invest in rain boots. It struck me yesterday as I was walking home in the rain, that rain boots really are going to be a necessity at some point.  Because by the time I got home, there was no other word for what was happening with my shoes and socks than…

shame, guilt, love, and evangelism

A few weeks ago, a woman got onto the subway at the stop after mine, and after awhile, she began to preach.  At first, I thought she might have been the slightest bit crazy, because she started by quoting random lyrics to old-school church songs (but saying them, not singing them), and it’s not unusual in…

questions, conversations, and cultural Christianity

questions, conversations, and cultural Christianity

One of the many questions I’ve found myself asking lately concerns the cultural nature of Christianity: how much of what I believe about what it means to be a follower of Jesus has been shaped by what people have told me to think versus what’s actually true?  And what haven’t I questioned yet that maybe…

on asking the right questions

on asking the right questions

There are moments that – for whatever reason – stick with us from the moment we experience them. The first time I watched Meg Ryan as Albert Einstein’s niece in IQ scrawl the words “Question Everything!!!” across a blackboard was one such moment for me.

Meet Happy

Thanks for visiting!

Simple Felicity is, at its heart, a blog based on the unshakeable belief that happiness really isn't all that complicated. Sometimes finding it can be - but happiness itself is pretty simple, and it's often found in the simplest of things: good food, good books, and good company. So those are the things I write about, along with a few other things that really matter to me, including faith and feminism.

A bit about me: My name is Happy. I have an amazing talent for misplacing my keys, a deep appreciation for whomever looked at the coffee bean and thought, "Hey, I wonder what would happen if I roasted this?", and road trips to Michigan are pretty much my favorite.

Contact me anytime at simplefelicity7 (at) gmail (dot) com! I'd love to hear from you.
