This past Friday, I took advantage of a rare afternoon off, and spent some time puttering around in the kitchen. I’ve never really worked from a recipe for soup – I usually just throw whatever vegetables I have in the fridge into a pot, and it generally turns out alright. But this time, I decided to pay a…
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…
Christmas is my absolute favorite time of year, and one of the things I love most about this season is the variety of scents – especially the yummy ones from the kitchen! Nothing quite beats the smell of sugar cookies, cinnamon, and pine. I’m not doing a lot of baking for Christmas this year, but…
I’m so excited to share this guest-post from my dear friend Maria with you. Maria is one of the wisest, kindest, and most thoughtful people I know, and I love chatting with her. I almost always come away with some new insight about what it really means to love God and love people, and I’m…
I’ve written a lot about friendship over the past few years, and I’m not entirely sure that’s coincidence. Things have been consistently… well, shall we say challenging, for lack of a better word, and I’m not joking when I say that I don’t know how I ever would have gotten through any of it without the kindness, caring,…
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.
