7 Quick Takes Friday (vol. 20): good books, good music, and a little art to boot

7 Quick Takes Friday (vol. 20): good books, good music, and a little art to boot

— 1 — I’m trying something new for the next couple of months; I’m shifting my Sabbath day from Saturdays to Fridays.  My schedule can be somewhat insane during the week, and by Friday night, I’m generally ready for a break – but I’ve found that if I push too hard on Fridays, trying to…

7 Quick Takes Friday (vol. 19): intentions, planning, and really good books

7 Quick Takes Friday (vol. 19): intentions, planning, and really good books

— 1 — It’s been a productively lazy week – or maybe lazily productive?  Either way, this past week has been the perfect blend of getting stuff done and doing fun things.  I have read entire books from cover to cover (most notably Anne Lamott’s Stitches and Lauren Graham’s Someday, Someday, Maybe) and been to…

7 Quick Takes Friday (vol.18): ball pits, coffee, and gender equality

  — 1 — Wow.  What a crazy lot of great conversation has happened over the past week ever since Rachel Held Evans made a simple observation on Twitter about the imbalance between the number of male and female speakers at a recent online leadership conference called the Nines.  (You can see the speaker line-up…

7 Quick Takes Friday (vol. 17): musical string theory, drum pants and friendship

— 1 — Jen Fulweiler once joked about dividing her life into two epochs – before and after discovering the Guy On A Buffalo videos.  (Yeah, that was my fault… lol.) I may divide my own life epochs in relation to discovering string theory explained to the tune of Bohemian Rhapsody.  This video is brilliant…

7 Quick Takes Friday (vol.16): FYIs and conversations

7 Quick Takes Friday (vol.16): FYIs and conversations

— 1 — Guess what: it’s still Friday!  (At least while I’m writing this first of my 7 Quick Takes.)  I call that victory, compared to last week.  (Hey, I’ll take victory where I find it, lol.  I’ve written twice in eight days.  That’s a win.) All joking aside, the truth of the matter is:…

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.
