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 – #2: the one about the courage to be who you are

Seven Stories That Have Shaped My Life – #2: the one about the courage to be who you are

e.e. cummings once said, “It takes courage to grow up and become who you really are.”  Goodness, that’s true!  The older I get, the more astonished I am by the number of “voices” that try to influence us every day – some with good intentions, some not so much, and some not even intentionally –…

I’ve been thinking a lot about dreams lately.  Eight years ago, I had an epiphany of sorts, realizing that my dream for my life had changed dramatically.   Today, if I’m brutally honest – I don’t think I ever really let go of my old dream completely, even while embracing a new one.  I think I was actually…

three men and a journal: reflections on pursuing the one relationship that matters most

three men and a journal: reflections on pursuing the one relationship that matters most

Over the past couple of weeks, we’ve talked a fair bit about the drawbacks of online dating. Today’s guest post, written by one of my dearest friends, shares a slightly different perspective: Just over a year ago, I began having a discussion with God about my hopes and dreams for marriage. I’d been talking with…

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.
