It’s hard to believe it’s already been 2 weeks. In some ways, it still feels extremely surreal. I really don’t feel like I actually live here yet, but I keep reminding myself that a lot of that likely has to do with the fact that there are still a lot of details to finalize (like…
I moved to Brooklyn yesterday! It was a little surreal, arriving at a house I’d only seen in pictures, and unpacking the few belongings I brought with me into closets and onto shelves that don’t feel even remotely like mine. I was grateful to find a few amenities, tho – clean sheets on the bed, hangers in the…
I’ve been participating in the OneWord 365 community for several years now, and I’m always a little surprised to look back at the unexpected ways in which one little word has affected my life every year. If you’re not familiar with the OneWord 365 concept, the general idea is that instead of making New Year’s “resolutions,” you simply…
I don’t think I’ve ever been so glad to see a year come to an end. New Year’s Day is typically one of my favorite holidays because it represents new beginnings, and as such, holds so much promise. So far this year, it’s been hard to feel that promise – and the excitement I wish would come…
It’s not every day you wake up to find out the company you worked for folded overnight. What were the odds? (Well, it turns out they were probably good, but I didn’t know to be paying attention.) But still. It was an unexpected shock, and a heart-breaking one. I really liked my job, had good relationships with…
Thanks so much for visiting Simple Felicity! 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.
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 femininity.
Contact me anytime at simplefelicity7 (at) gmail (dot) com! I'd love to hear from you.
