going sockfoot

It was a hot summer Thursday evening, years ago at a Vine Band rehearsal; our bassist was wearing flip-flops and he took them off. Our worship leader commented on this, and our bassist replied something to the effect of: “you can’t play rock-n-roll in flip-flops, there’s just something wrong with that.” So we all went barefoot for…

reflections over coffee and candy cane pie

Our pastor preached today on hitting “the pause button” on life, taking time out to reflect on who God is and who we are in Him. He based his points off the times in Mary’s life when she would treasure divine moments and “ponder them in her heart.” We’re to stop and reflect on blessings,…

I’m reading a great book by Lauren Winner called Mudhouse Sabbath – it’s excellent stuff, really makes you think about how you live and why – and the chapter I read today was on the Hebrew practice of hachnassat orchim, or hospitality, and how it should/could fit into the Christian life. Basically the gist of the chapter was…

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.
