reflections on the unexpected

reflections on the unexpected

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…

Festive Christmas Cranberry Sauce

Festive Christmas Cranberry Sauce

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…

and this is love: reflections on friendship and being the Church

and this is love: reflections on friendship and being the Church

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,…

the break-up, part 2

the break-up, part 2

Apparently I’m not alone… The response to the post I wrote at the end of April about breaking up with the church was overwhelming; in less than 24 hours, it had become the 4th most-popular post on my blog. Clearly, it resonated with more than a few of my readers. I’m grateful to say that the comments – both…

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.
