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…
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.

— 1 — I’m just going to apologize in advance for the amount of fluff that will probably show up in this week’s 7QT post. There are a lot of real things I could write about, but in truth, this week was probably one of the hardest weeks I’ve had in awhile. It was mostly full…

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.
