Blown Away! - A Big Thank You

OMG! It's my SITS Day!! I am so excited, deeply touched and honoured to be today's Featured Blogger! I am blessed to have met these wonderful women, the SITS girls, "The Secret is in the Sauce" through my blogging journey.
The ladies over at SITS are absolutely fabulous! They have built a fantastic group of women based on the great idea of supporting each other through commenting and their wonderful motto is:
"The Secret in Success is Support"! And they are featuring me today!
 Love you SITS GALS!!  A big "Thank You" goes out to you!
                                   
I love the concept of this community, and the support that we offer each other.
For those who don't know, "The Secret is in the Sauce", ( SITS), is a blog site made to connect women bloggers everywhere.
It's kind of big deal, they have SITS conferences and everything!
You should definitely check them out! Do yourself a favour!

If you're visiting from SITS, you already know how important that is and Welcome! Welcome! Welcome!
It has been a privilege to get to know some lovely, hilarious and wonderful women.
I still have so many of you to discover.

To all my SITS tahs: A big Thank You to you all for your supporting and presence!      
Feel free to browse around and get to know me better!

Here's why I need to stay motivated.

Thank you so much for making my day so special!

Have a blissfully happy day! xx

Confessions From A Working Mom said...

Stopping by from SITS-- I wanted to comment on your previous post (the one with all the animals on the road pictures), but you had comments turned off! I was just wondering if you knew what kind of animal it was in the second picture... the white moose-like creatures on the side of the road? I've never seen a white moose, so I'm curious!

Tractor Mom said...

I truly enjoyed reading some of your blogs. I would like to comment on the blog you wrote about Planet B.

Planet B is the ideal planet but it got me thinking...how boring it would be! Just think, people wouldn't argue over anything, no car crashes to rubber-neck at, no pollution to complain about, and no sad people to make laugh! I do like the idea, I just think a like a little salt in my soup!

Come and visit...I don't get as profound as you do, but I am having fun!

Farila said...

I think I will have to visit the site and check it out.. Sounds great the way you have described them. I tried visiting you yesterday but your blog would not open .. glad I tried again today.
