adventures in Brooklyn, vol. 3

adventures in Brooklyn, vol. 3

Although I did grow up in New England, I’ve been a Midwestern girl since the beginning of my college days.  I love the Midwest.  Forests, lakes, beaches, cornfields – space.  So. Much. Space. Brooklyn is nothing like the Midwest.  Sometimes it feels like a foreign country. I knew I was starting a new life, but…

adventures in Brooklyn, vol. 2

adventures in Brooklyn, vol. 2

It’s hard to believe it’s already been 2 weeks. In some ways, it still feels extremely surreal.  I really don’t feel like I actually live here yet, but I keep reminding myself that a lot of that likely has to do with the fact that there are still a lot of details to finalize (like…

I moved to Brooklyn yesterday! It was a little surreal, arriving at a house I’d only seen in pictures, and unpacking the few belongings I brought with me into closets and onto shelves that don’t feel even remotely like mine.  I was grateful to find a few amenities, tho – clean sheets on the bed, hangers in the…

innocence, loss, and hard-won faith

innocence, loss, and hard-won faith

Sometimes I miss what Sarah Bessey calls the “happy clappy” days of my faith.  I was sixteen when I decided that being a follower of Jesus was going to be something that defined me for the rest of my life, and in some ways the decision is still that simple: “Yes.” But there was an innocence…

the break-up, part 2

the break-up, part 2

Apparently I’m not alone… The response to the post I wrote at the end of April about breaking up with the church was overwhelming; in less than 24 hours, it had become the 4th most-popular post on my blog. Clearly, it resonated with more than a few of my readers. I’m grateful to say that the comments – both…

Meet Happy

Thanks so much for visiting Simple Felicity!

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.
