    I “liked” your blog and on FB. My favorite cookies are oatmeal chocolate chip. I’ve made a number of your recipes and have loved them all!

Congrats Kathy! I’ll be in contact with you soon.  Happy Valentine’s Day!!

Some of you have been following my blog since its inception.  Some of you have been following for about a year.  Some of you are brand-stinkin’ new.  And I love you all tremendously, no matter how long you’ve been following.  While technically I started this blog in 2009, it really wasn’t until this time last year that I had a clear vision of what I wanted to do with it and where I wanted to take it.  So I thought that it’d be fun to have a little giveaway, to celebrate my one-year blogoversary.

I know I can’t thank all of you individually with cookies, but I can at least say thank you from the bottom of my heart for reading, commenting, and sharing.  So thank you!  (And while I’m at it, I want to personally thank my husband who so graciously watches Matthew while I bake in the kitchen, willingly proofreads these posts, and happily eats the leftovers.)  I don’t even want to think about how many pounds of butter, flour, sugar, and eggs I’ve used this past year!  We’ll just say a lot and leave it at that.

For one lucky winner, I have a dozen Valentine Sugar cookies coming your way.  Yeah!  So much can be said in a cookie, and for me, it’s genuine gratitude.  I never thought that this little blog would be read by so many special people.

So, here’s how this giveaway works.  You can enter one of two ways: Continue reading

I subscribed to your blog & liked your facebook page! :) I’d love to win some of your yummy cookies


Congrats Adri!  I will notify you and send you some yummy cookies.  :)

How was your weekend?  I hope you had a good one.  Mine was filled with family and friends and being inside an air-conditioned house because it was in the 90s.  I think I jinxed myself because I swear it wasn’t two weeks ago that I was telling someone how this summer, in the Pacific Northwest, was perfect because we haven’t had a 90-degree day yet, and now we’ve had it all week!  Me and my mouth!

Anyway, I thought it’d be fun to have a little giveaway.  I promised on Facebook if I got 50 likes (it’s a grass-roots kind of thing) I’d have a giveaway.  And everyone loves giveaways, right?  I get really excited when I win something, because that rarely happens.  When I was 12 I won a 50-piece set of tupperware, and I sadly gave it to my mom, because, after all, what would a 12-year-old do with 50 pieces of tupperware?  I told my mom it was her Christmas present.  But this giveaway is better than tupperware (although I could probably use some of it now!).  I am giving away 1 dozen decorated sugar cookies.  Yeah!  I don’t know what kind I’ll make yet.  It all depends on my mood.  Hope that’ll be okay with you, but I promise you that they’ll be good.
