— 1 — Well, hey there! I thought I might put together a 7QT post this week, as a way to say, “Why, yes, I still write!” Those of you who have been reading along for awhile know that this has been an unusually difficult year, and I’ve had a lot going behind the scenes….
I suppose it’s inevitable that, having grown up in the ’80s/’90s, there is occasionally going to be a day when all I can say by the end of it is: “Have mercy…” – and that I will totally (<– see what I just did there?) hear the voices of Jesse Katsopolis and Joey Gladstone in my head when I say it….
At the beginning of January, I joined the OneWord365 Community and chose “compassion” as my one word for the year. I knew it was going to cost me something. What I didn’t really register is that one of the things it will cost is my pride. The first thing I’ve learned about compassion is how…

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.
