I Heart You {and your cookies} *Review and Giveaway*

This Giveaway is now Closed

As most of you are aware, I hit a whopping 400 followers around the end of February-Since then, I've gained a few more, but I haven't forgotten that exciting and victorious feeling when I hit that big 4-0-0 :)

I know I've told all my wonderful readers this once already (or maybe a few times? LOL), but you guys are SO awesome! I would definitely not be where I am today without all of my reader's support and encouragement.

This calls for a celebration! In this celebration, along with me and all of you guys of course, I would love to include my new friend Susan over at The Lazy G Ranch and City Gal Moves to Oz Land.

Remember THIS post? Well I realized a week later that Susan and one of my jewelry-customers-turned-quick-friends was involved in this extremely shocking and oh-so-delicious surprise!

Once I got to know Susan (and her cookies), I HAD to share both of them with all my newer and seasoned readers-Here is some background on the honest to goodness city-turned-country girl:

Susan is a bonafied Ohio bred city girl who's heart was swiftly stolen by a native Kansas cutie {If you don't believe me, their story is HERE and it's quite a heart-warming read}!

This busy lady not only manages two blogs, one of which is dedicated to selling delectable treats for man, and man's best friend, but she also has a photography shop very appropriately named Wheatgrass Designs. This site displays some beautiful artwork of her everyday surroundings in usable items such as greeting cards, calenders, postage stamps and posters!

I'm incredibly lucky to have sampled her buttery, frosted 'I Heart You' cookies for Valentine's Day(the timing couldn't have been more perfect)-I'm thrilled ashamed to inform everyone that besides two cookies I shared with my mother, the rest of these cookies were mine, ALL MINE! He he.

What impressed me the most besides their flavor was Susan's attention to detail-Each cookie was individually wrapped in it's own special bag, stacked neatly upon each other and carefully placed in another, larger bag, which was then wrapped closed with a colorful ribbon. Last but not least, she added an ingredient sticker that was placed on the outside of the bag to let you know exactly what went into her products.

You can certainly tell Susan really cares about each and every cookie and her customer's enjoyment just by the packaging it comes in!



{The Giveaway}

One (incredibly) lucky Elementian will win a dozen I Heart You Cookies for themselves or someone they


Cookie Description:

"Hand-rolled and hand-cut buttery dough is frosted with a rich butter and confectioner’s sugar icing ~ some are lightly dusted with sugar sprinkles for a more cheerful look. Sprinkled with sugar or not, we think you’ll agree this is one yummi-licious cookie!"
