thoughts on growing up

I was out yesterday for a ride on my bike in this gorgeous fall weather we’re having, and I hit a new trail – well, new to me, anyway. There’s a section where the trail splits and a lovely and helpful wooden sign directs you to a mile-loop trail if you should so desire to…

hospitable church planting

hospitable church planting

So ages ago I posted this on hospitality and what I was learning about it from Lauren Winner’s book, Mudhouse Sabbath. (I’m still learning.) One of the things she talked about in that chapter was how she felt her apartment just wasn’t right for entertaining well – she had a picnic table in her study…

Jeremiah 31:21-22: “Set up road signs; put up guideposts. Take note of the highway, the road that you take. Return, O Virgin Israel, return to your towns. How long will you wander, O unfaithful daughter? The LORD will create a new thing on earth – a woman will surround a man.” What?! After three hours…

i am not the perfect mother

(in memory of Susannah Wesley)                     I am sticky, with peanut butter artwork all over my chair; the table is covered with crumbs and he grins, with his brown milk mustache.   Susannah had more children than I have imagined, yet she lived. I do not…

loving God

loving God

    I recently found myself unexpectedly challenged by something I’ve read. It’s from a book by Peter Rollins called How (Not) To Speak of God.

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.
