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…

the break-up

the break-up

Church has been the center of my spiritual and social life for as long as I can remember.  Some of my earliest and happiest memories include sitting on the front porch, singing “Tell Me The Story Of Jesus,” and planting marigolds in the Sunday school garden.  My childhood was filled with hymn sings, potlucks, choir…

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…

in which i’ve become an entrepreneur…

It’s not every day you wake up to find out the company you worked for folded overnight.  What were the odds?  (Well, it turns out they were probably good, but I didn’t know to be paying attention.)  But still.  It was an unexpected shock, and a heart-breaking one.  I really liked my job, had good relationships with…

Meet Happy

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.
