It's My SITS Day!!!


“Each friend represents a world in us, 
a world possibly not born until they arrive, 
and it is only by this meeting that a new world is born.” 
Anais Nin

Silence.
And then....
A chorus of HALLELUJAHS slowly begin to rise in the air...

Hooooooly Heavens...... it's my SITS day!!!!!
It's my SITS Day...It's my SITS Day...It's my SITS day.
*doing the "cabbage patch" dance...very awkwardly I might add*

Wait....what is SITS you may ask???
For reals?
Where've you been bella????
Alrighty...time for you to crawl out from under that rock 
and let's get you up to speed....

SITS stands for "The Secret is in The Sauce"
Sooooo what's the secret????
It's diving into the sauce baby....
SITS is an amazingggg sisterhood of 15,000 bloggers
dedicated to supporting one another by leaving comments
and learning about blogging.

I have discovered so many incredible blogs through SITS,
and the friendships that have forged through this community
are irreplaceable.
I feel so blessed to be a part of it....
and today....Mangiabella is on the menu.

So welcome SITS-tahs....
have a seat, 
and take a look around.

I've gathered a few tasty selections to whet the appetite...
enjoy, and Mangia!

If you'd like to know how it all began....read this
if you need a little perspective...read this
if you're feeling weary & in despair....read this
if you're going through a fierce trial....read this
If you're in the mood for a little distraction...read this
if you're hungry....read this
if you're thirsty...read this
if you're longing to simplify...read this

and if you're trying to please everyone around you...stop it....and read this 

I hope your soul finds rest today...
That amidst the hustle and bustle
and busy-ness of life,
you'll find a moment to be still.
To ponder. To reflect. To listen.
That you'll feel a stirring deep within...
And respond.
Praying for an extra measure of strength 
and courage
 to walk the path set before you....

Keep Shining Sweet Bellas!!

  36. I don't usually comment on the "SITS Girls Day" posts because for the past several months, in addition to all my usual duties, I've been fighting illness. Right now, it's mono - if you can believe it! I'm a 50-year old mother of four fighting mono. Ugh.

    But I remember you, Mangiabella, commenting on my blog quite some time ago. Over a year ago, I'm sure. I don't remember what post it was but you helped to make that day a little more special so...I wanted to pop in and say "hi" and "congratulations" and "keep up the good work!"

Thanks so much! Happy SITS Girl Day!!!!!
