MY SITS DAY!


I am a part of this amazing network of bloggers called SITS. (See the link in the bottom right column of my blog). We discover, promote and support each other every day! Today is my day to be "discovered". This is my opportunity to tell you about myself, my blog and my inspiration! So...CIAO! My name is Amanda and I started my blog to enhance my online retail store at www.thedapperdarling.com. It was meant to give customers tips, fun gift ideas and let them know about new items and sales. Then within two weeks word came that my husband and I would be moving to Italy and I was pregnant! We arrived as I was 6 months pregnant and tried to prepare our new home for our little angel. Marcella Marie arrived in September of 2008 and I was now officially a stay at home mom. Life for me before she was born was insanely busy. I had a full time job, owned my own internet business on the side, always in the middle of some renovation project at my home and led a very busy social life . Now, I was at home most of the time with my little one and no one to talk to but my two dogs. Of course she kept me busy but I needed some kind of outlet. So, I started writing posts once a week or so. I found that every morning I wanted to say more. I wanted to write about other great products from other stores I found or fun ideas for decorating. I wanted to write about this amazing country I now live in and all its wonders. Now I post every day. My mission is to keep it light, funny, interesting and in general just make you smile. Here are a few links of older posts you can check out! Feel free to become a follower and comment away. I love making new friends and finding out about what interests others!

Life in Europe!

  70. Nice to meet you!!! and HAPPY SITS DAY!!! I am happy you are enjoying your new life at Europe.... It is hard to adapt... isn't it? I've been living in the USA for almost 3 years (came from Mexico when I got married) and it is beautiful, yes, but sometimes it is overwhelming to see myself in such a different place.... I am thankful though... God is good...

    About your MISSION: "My mission is to keep it light, funny, interesting and in general just make you smile." ... IT seems like you are doing GREAT! For what I've read your posts are just like that!

    Looking forward to reading some more!
