These things not only give me real joy but it also calms me, brings me to a humble and quiet place where the world around me crumbles and where I really am relaxed.
This blog started as a positive space where I could share some ideas about baking and cooking. For more than two years, it was called Sugar Coated and it was all about recipes. But time changes, interest shift a bit, and here you have it, the version 2.0 of Sugar Coated: The Willow Life.
The name came to me a Saturday morning. I live on a street named Saules, which is the French name for Willows. When looking at more information about willow trees, I read something that I very much liked. It said about willows that “their roots are remarkable for their toughness, size, and tenacity to life”, which really inspired me. From that moment, I knew it was the right name.
Since I am always looking at trying new projects (and I sometimes fail miserably), this blog is now a space to talk about what really makes my life sweeter on Willow Street – may it be traveling, a book I loved, a new project in the house or a DIY adventure. Of course, this blog will always showcase many of my favourite recipes.
I started blogging in 2012 in Ottawa, and since then have moved to the beautiful town of Aylmer in Québec.
This blog would not be the same without the contribution of the talented photographer Jacob Fergus, who takes every picture for this blog. You can visit his photography website by clicking here.
