maybe not nothing

maybe not nothing

Today was a good day.  I slept in a bit, treated myself to an hour and half at a local spa, came home and cooked myself an extravagant lunch, watched a few episodes of Gilmore Girls, spent some more time cooking, and listened to great music.  It was good.  Quiet.  Nice.  Uneventful. And exactly what…

Book Review: Be You. Do Good.

Book Review: Be You. Do Good.

As I mentioned last week, I’ve been reading Be You. Do Good., by Jonathan David Golden.  I meant it when I said it’s been a fabulous read.  The stories Golden tells about his work in Rwanda and the positive change that his company is bringing about in the lives of hundreds of people around the world are…

My OneWord for 2016

My OneWord for 2016

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…

Seven Stories That Have Shaped My Life: #7 – the one about epic adventures

Seven Stories That Have Shaped My Life: #7 – the one about epic adventures

Picking a seventh book for this series was difficult – not because I didn’t have one, but because there are so many great stories that have influenced my life.  Choosing only one more was a challenge!

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.
