    Oh Lovely Day's Favorite Places in LA: Milk Jar Cookies

    I’ve been wanting to start a new series here on the blog where I share my family’s favorite places in Los Angeles. I’ve been using #OLDsfaveplacesinLA on instagram to share glimpses of our favorite spots, but today I want to officially start with a tour of our favorite neighborhood spot: Milk Jar Cookies. It’s just the cutest place and has THE BEST cookies ever.

    We’ve been going to Milk Jar Cookies since they opened in the spring of 2013. It started as a way to bribe Charlie to go to his swim class but Milk Jar has become a place where my family celebrates lots of other little victories, or brightens up a rough day. And since it is walking distance from our home, we visit once a week.

    I have to honestly say, theirs are the best cookies I’ve ever had. They are big (the size of 3 cookies at most other bakeries). And they are soft and delicious — I don’t know how you can bake a cookie that big to be completely cooked through and still be soft. It’s cookie magic. Our favorite cookies are: chocolate chip (mine), chocolate peanut butter (my husband), and Charlie switches between those two, oatmeal raisin, and the “sprinkle cookie.” And at Christmas time the candy cane cookie is my absolute fave.

    You can visit Milk Jar Cookies at 5466 Wilshire Boulevard, in the Miracle Mile. They are closed on Mondays. You’ll find us there most Friday afternoons.

    •  Temporary post: I'm looking for the cutest non tacky apparel for moms and littles for 4th of July themed blog post. If you have something super cute and available online, shoot me an email to chandra@ohlovelyday.com with subject line "July 4th apparel" and a photo (flat lay preferable but on model ok) at least 600 pixels wide, price, and link to item. I'll choose a variety of my favorite 15 and will email you if yours was chosen. And tag a shop if you have seen something cute that I should check out. TIA (these cute swim shorts are by @trendybubs btw )  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
       We didn't remember to take his 4 month photos today (we'll just pretend the 26th is tomorrow ) but we did manage a photo for #rednoseday. Don't forget to donate! @rednosedayusa ❣#doitforthekids  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
