• Creating The Perfect Cheese & Charcuterie Plate

    I’m super excited about today’s guest post from my friend Rachelle of Wiley Valentine. Rachelle is always sharing yummy and healthy food ideas and recipes on her blog, and today she is sharing her tips to creating the perfect cheese and charcuterie plate, and since that’s what I missed most during my pregnancy I’m drooling over here and sending my husband to the market to buy supplies asap. And they are perfect for entertaining or just eating at home with the fam.

    Hello there! Rachelle here from Wiley Valentine. I am beyond thrilled to be guest posting for the fabulous Chandra today. Now a little back story to this post, I have a true, deep, passionate love for cheese and charcuterie plates. If you have seen my instagram at all you can see that it is quite common for us to have these at home on a Monday night. I thought it was high time that I divulge my secrets to creating the perfect cheese and charcuterie plate. Not just the usual general “a soft cheese, a semi-soft cheese, a blue, cows milk and goats milk” but actual names of cheese! So here we go!

    First things first, we want to make sure your plate looks pretty. The food will make it gorgeous regardless, but having the right cutting board, plates etc..can make all the difference. Having an impromptu party and have no time to cook, this is your solution, and the beautiful serving pieces make it entertaining ready.

    •  Talking about embracing our postpartum bodies on the blog today with photos from my shoot with @sollybabywrap when I was 10 days postpartum. Let's start a movement of embracing our real postpartum mom bods - haven't we earned it after pregnancy, labor, delivery, sleep deprivation, nursing, and everything else we put our bodies through? Head to the blog to read my thoughts on the subject - link in profile or ohlovelyday.com. And share your own postpartum photos proudly with #embraceyourmombod #battlefieldmotherhood  @maxwanger #quincyrhys #sollybaby  Can I freeze time and keep him a yummy baby forever?  #quincyrhys
       Kind of obsessed with this invitation suite from @minted for a desert wedding. It's the kind of stationery suite that you could design an entire wedding around and it would be  #mintedweddings  Having our best week yet -- a bit more sleep, a bit less reflux, and constant smiles. You were even awake in the car today for over an hour and never made one unhappy sound. I guess it takes 17 weeks to reach your happy place 🤗 (also, I could barely snap this outfit, which makes me reeeeaaaal sad because it's my favorite) #quincysweekbyweek #quincyrhys #quincysmilestones
