untapped colors

untapped colors

“There are more colors on the palette of your soul than you have even begun to paint with.” Matt said that in November, three years ago, and I’d forgotten about it until last weekend, when I came across it in a journal, and it made me cry. Apparently it made me cry then too, because…

pottery, beauty, and redemptive hope

The thing about being an artist is that sometimes you get stuck on something and you just can’t get past it until you’ve found some way of expressing it.

I’m still thinking about the whole missions thing and how all the pieces of my crazy life fit together.  There are two things I know for certain. One is that I am called to missions. The other is that I am called to lead worship. It makes sense to me that those two things would…

The other day, I was out hiking a new trail. There were signs posted when trails intersected or when the main trail turned, so I was fairly confident that I knew where I was going, but along the way there were all these inviting little unmarked trails, and I kept wondering where they went. I…

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.
