7 Quick Takes Friday (vol. 11): modesty, faerie tales, squirrels

7 Quick Takes Friday (vol. 11): modesty, faerie tales, squirrels

— 1 — It’s summer – the time of year when everything slows down… in theory.  My life really hasn’t.  It occurred to me this morning, reading this article by Anne Lamott, that “manic” is no longer just Monday’s adjective – my schedule is packed (entirely too much so), and finding time to slow down…

7 Quick Takes Friday (vol. 10): rainbows, bridges, and brontosauri

7 Quick Takes Friday (vol. 10): rainbows, bridges, and brontosauri

  — 1 — Best.  Birthday.  Ever. I know a lot of really amazing people, and one of them decided to let me tag along on a relatively spontaneous trip to all-inclusive resort in Costa Rica.  I did very little aside from reading, sleeping, swimming, and eating for five straight days, most of it right…

7 Quick Takes Friday (vol. 9): the eclectic musical edition

  — 1 — I can’t say this week was completely uneventful.  It was, however, fairly quiet and low-key.  Visits to the chiropractor.  Long walks.  Lunch mid-week with one of my favorites.  Great conversations with amazing friends.  And summer.  It is finally summer!  And everyone in Illinois is happier and friendlier and has suddenly remembered why…

— 1 — It’s been a somewhat eventful week here in Happy-land.  It began with attempting to get up out of a chair Sunday morning, and failing miserably.  It continued with an ongoing battle between my pride and common sense.  I finally swallowed my pride and went to a chiropractor on Wednesday – and am…

Meet Happy

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.
