Hey y'all!  Today I'd like to introduce you to Rachael of held by his hand.  Rachael and M "met" through the blogging world and have been followers of (and sponsors of) one another's blogs for the past few months!

Today, she's sharing with you all a list of things that make her smile.  And frankly, this girl is one after my own heart.  Most of these things make me smile too.   

Hey Heavens to Betsy friends! I’m Rachael - I blog at heldbyHishand, and I’m so excited to be sponsoring Betsy’s blog this month. She invited me to write a guest post to share with you all. So, I’ve been thinking all week about what I wanted to share with you, and this is what I came up with.

Things that Make Me Smile - a list of 7 things that I grin for
1.  Small kiddos
These are ones I nanny for regularly… Triplets + big brothers! You can follow their adventures on their Mum’s blog - caitlinshappyheart.blogspot.com. I also have 9 siblings who are especially dear to me! :)
2.  The peak of a mountain hike
I haven’t been hiking in a good while, but looking at photos like this one from a year ago stirs me to walk! Something about a big view that reminds me how small I am…

3.  Sending and receiving snail mail
I love letters. It’s true, I really do! In fact, I have this awesome little thing on my blog, where if you plug in your details, I will mail you a handwritten card. True story! Go here to check it out: heldbyhishand.blogspot.com.au/p/but-wait-theres-more.html

4.  New books
I am a book junkie. Would you like to see my bookcase? Embarrassing as it is, here you go:
I recently purchased a few new ones from The Book Depository online, which is my bargain book place. Especially worthwhile for gifts, with Christmas coming up and all!
5. Hot porridge with raw sugar
Yummm… One of my favourite breakfasts is porridge with raw sugar. And while I think it is the same thing that you American’s call ‘oatmeal’, I’m going to stick with porridge. And eat it… all. the. time.

6.  Scented candles
Do I need to explain this one? Mmmm… I just received a new one for my birthday and it is a heavenly combination of vanilla and pears. Oh yes. New favourite scent!

7.  Blogging and blogs
You probably grin for this too! But the friends and adventures and things I’m learning in the blogosphere are so wonderfully delightful. Especially Betsy :)

So there you go, 7 things that make me grin. If you want to find out more things that put a smile on my dial, visit me at any of the links below! I would love love love to meet you!

{and thanks again Betsy!}

  1. Those are all things that would make me happy! Except the porridge, Rachael. I do like grits with brown sugar, but not oatmeal!
