Thank you so much for stopping by 
my Blogwarming Party!  

Allow me to introduce myself.
I'm thrilled that you could make it!

Make yourself comfortable.  

Can I get you anything?
Perhaps a few names of some other amazing bloggers?
A list of helpful links?
A 504 Plan for school?

Feel free to take a look around, but please don't leave without grabbing my button, and getting yourself entered to win an amazing PRIZE PACK!

It's my gift to you, my dear Reader Friend.  
Just my way of saying THANK YOU for showing me some bloggy love!

If you've been around awhile, you already know this here is my new blog home.
Today is actually my TWO YEAR Blogaversary.

In the coming weeks, you can expect to see some of my most popular posts dug out of the archives and reposted here.  Be on the lookout for some yummy gluten free goodies, along with a good bit of (Candy)HEART(s)FELT, diabetes stuff too.

But don't fret, old friends!  I have alot of new stuff too.

Like the lunch date with Mr. Rose the other day.
And finger jello.

Now does that really sound like something you'd want to miss?
Okay.
Nevermind.
I just re-read that.

ANYWAY,
To enter you must leave a comment on this post AND share the love.
For extra brownie points, you should become a follower of Candy Hearts as well.
(PS - Current Followers, I have your back.  When it's time to tally up the final numbers, each of my followers who have left a comment AND shared this post will earn 2 extra chances to win.)

Win what?
Well, I'm glad you asked!

ONE lucky Candy Hearts reader is going to receive **ALL** of the following:


 2)  A a $50 gift certificate from Lauren's Hope

3)  A bag of Gluten Free Sugar Cookie Mix from Jules Gluten Free


4)  A custom blog header from Dotty Dot Dot

5)  This gorgeous necklace.

Created by my neighbor, this necklace is the FIRST of it's kind and was inspired by Sugar's journey to honor those who have been affected by Type 1 Diabetes.
The butterflies represent freedom, hope, and life.  
The color blue represents the BLUE CIRCLE that unites the diabetes community.
(Adding to it's uniqueness, this piece is not yet available for purchase.) 

WINNER TAKES ALL!
For complete contest details, you'll want to check out the details that follow.

Stick around as long as you'd like.
It's good to be in the company of friends.

From my Candy Heart to Yours,
