Seven Stories That Have Shaped My Life: #7 – the one about epic adventures

Seven Stories That Have Shaped My Life: #7 – the one about epic adventures

Picking a seventh book for this series was difficult – not because I didn’t have one, but because there are so many great stories that have influenced my life.  Choosing only one more was a challenge! In truth, I did choose it several weeks ago. And then I decided to re-read it.  Which I did – albeit…

Seven Stories That Have Shaped My Life: #6 – the one about trust and vulnerability

Seven Stories That Have Shaped My Life: #6 – the one about trust and vulnerability

Confession #1: (I am slightly embarrassed to admit this but) I really love a good love story. Observation of Fact #1: There are a lot of really awful Christian romance novels out there.  (And when I say really awful, I’m talking “how-did-this-ever-get-published” awful…) Confession #2: As a result of Observation of Fact #1, when I find…

Seven Stories That Have Shaped My Life: #5 – the one about learning to see

Seven Stories That Have Shaped My Life – #4: the one about transparency

I have a confession to make.  The title of this series changed about 5 times as I perused my shelves. “Oh, but I love this book; I have to tell people about this one.”   “No, I can’t include that one; people won’t understand it.”   “How can one person read this many books? (Every….

Seven Stories That Have Shaped My Life: #3 – the one about contentment

Seven Stories That Have Shaped My Life: #3 – the one about contentment

I have loved faerie tales all my life.  I still distinctly remember the summer I discovered Andrew Lang’s Fairy Books; I’m not sure I did anything other than read that summer. But one of my favorite fairy tales isn’t found in any fairy tale anthologies (that I know of).  This one is an annual re-read…

Meet Happy

Thanks for visiting!

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.
