Seven Stories That Have Shaped My Life – #4: the one about transparency

Seven Stories That Have Shaped My Life – #4: the one about transparency

I have a confession to make.  The title of this series changed about 5 times as I perused my shelves. “Oh, but I love this book; I have to tell people about this one.”   “No, I can’t include that one; people won’t understand it.”   “How can one person read this many books? (Every….

Seven Stories That Have Shaped My Life: #3 – the one about contentment

Seven Stories That Have Shaped My Life: #3 – the one about contentment

I have loved faerie tales all my life.  I still distinctly remember the summer I discovered Andrew Lang’s Fairy Books; I’m not sure I did anything other than read that summer. But one of my favorite fairy tales isn’t found in any fairy tale anthologies (that I know of).  This one is an annual re-read…

Seven Stories That Have Shaped My Life – #2: the one about the courage to be who you are

e.e. cummings once said, “It takes courage to grow up and become who you really are.”  Goodness, that’s true!  The older I get, the more astonished I am by the number of “voices” that try to influence us every day – some with good intentions, some not so much, and some not even intentionally –…

Seven Stories That Have Shaped My Life: #1 – the one about grief and anger

Seven Stories That Have Shaped My Life: #1 – the one about grief and anger

There is something tremendously powerful about a good story. We’ve been telling stories as long as we can remember – around campfires and in pictures on the walls of ancient caves; in pyramids and in long-winded scrolls, on paper, in person, in poetry, in song. Bards and minstrels, rock stars and movie stars, authors and bloggers…

7 Quick Takes Friday (vol. 67): the one for my friends who asked questions

  — 1 — Well, hey there!  I thought I might put together a 7QT post this week, as a way to say, “Why, yes, I still write!” Those of you who have been reading along for awhile know that this has been an unusually difficult year, and I’ve had a lot going behind the…

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.
