One of my favorite memories is the day I discovered feta. I will likely never be able to find this place again, but on a beautiful spring day on the 2nd floor terrace at a restaurant in Tirana, Albania, someone passed me a plate of cheese and urged me to try it. I kid you not,…
— 1 — Happy Friday Sunday! My parents were in town Friday evening, and knowing that I would likely be out late (which I was), I meant to write this post mid-week last week to publish on Friday, but (obviously) that didn’t happen. And Saturday ended up being a pretty full day, as well. So here…

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.
