for grace to live well

Something beautiful happened today. Actually, it started a few days ago, when I remembered my friend Sara talking about how she’d finally ordered the Book of Common Prayer. I’ve been meaning to do it myself for ages – Madeline L’Engle and Lauren Winner have both talked about its significance in their lives, and since they’re…

thoughts on growing up

I was out yesterday for a ride on my bike in this gorgeous fall weather we’re having, and I hit a new trail – well, new to me, anyway. There’s a section where the trail splits and a lovely and helpful wooden sign directs you to a mile-loop trail if you should so desire to…

So ages ago I posted this on hospitality and what I was learning about it from Lauren Winner’s book, Mudhouse Sabbath. (I’m still learning.)

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.
