Happy Friday Friends! Well, what a difference a week makes. It’s still only in the 40’s here but I think the worst weather of winter is behind us and Spring is inching closer now! I’m actually only dressing in one layer under my coat now versus the 2 to 3 when I was walking previously, LOL which means you know it was cold because I’m a hot-blooded gal. Let’s get to all the happy things!

1. Charcuterie Queen
GRAZE by Erica

It’s no secret that I am queen! Been doing charcuteries for my friends and family now for about five years! Heck, even when us girls go on girls’ vacations, we throw together a charcuterie. Remember my Red, White & Blue Charcuterie Board?? But the true queen of charcuterie is in my area is Erica from Graze! Our week was made on evening this week when we "Grazed" on one of her amazing boards! Here is the one she made for us.

Her business is booming and it’s no wonder because she is mighty talented, and she knows her way around a charcuterie board better than anybody I’ve ever met! I love how supportive she is of other women and locally owned businesses. She will even put together individual charcuterie cups for business and shop events, cater your weddings, showers and parties and being totally accommodatable and absolutely adorable doing it.

FOLLOW HER on INSTAGRAM for so much inspo!

And you know how I love great packaging! Erica has the sweetest logo and includes things like a honeycomb, bamboo tongs, cute disposable cups for the spreads, the wood tray itself and a handwritten note card with everything that is included on your board. What a gem of a business boss she is!

 My goodness they’re a work of art. Just look at some of her creations.

Look at this spread she did for a wedding!

Erica calls these Char-CUTIE CUPS!! Um YES! So practical to do cups for events these days.

Curated Charcuterie Boards for all occasions.

But anyone in the US can get one of these cute Cheese sweatshirts like I’m wearing and with CODE: CLOUDNINE5 you’ll get $5 Off a sweatshirt. It is soooo comfy and cute!

Cheese Lovers rejoice! They're sooo cute!!

2. Target Share Week

4. Ombré and Mint for Spring

I got this sweater a few weeks ago but I was saving it for warmer weather for you all. See, I told you that mint green was one of the colors for Spring and it flows so fabulously with the blue in this ombre slouchy sweater from one of my favorites, The Mint Julep Boutique! I always love Shopping the Mint as they call it, but I have especially been loving them lately and was so excited to pull out the white jeans to go with this Sweater! And I adore it is One Size Fits all!!
