We did it! OMG...thank you everyone for all of your amazing support! I am so overwhelmed with happiness and immense gratitude!

I can't believe my dream is finally becoming a reality. YOU all helped me get to the finish line and beyond! There are no words to describe how much I appreciate your faith in me, as well as your generosity.

I will be updating shortly with opening news, as well as first shipments of buttery deliciousness!

Today, I'm thinking of my mom. She was the first to teach me to love, enjoy and respect good food. Most importantly, she taught me the value of community and sharing with others. This is why I bake. I bake to remember my roots and to honor this woman who taught me so much. I bake for YOU, because it makes me happy and I feel like I've got a lot to give!

My belly is grumbling....I would kill to have one her hot out of the oven apple crisps, coffee mallow meringue pie, boozy Harvey Wallbanger bundt cake, French crepes with gobs of fresh whipped cream, apple kuchen, raspberry layer cake, lemon bars, Mexican wedding cookies, candied orange sables....

My mom had a lot of SUGAR LOVE to share. I am anxiously awaiting to do the same with you.


PS. 48 hours to go! Let's keep pushing until the very end! We've got a whole lotta sweetness n' sass waiting for YOU! XO

71 Hours To Go!


I can't believe we are down to the last 71 hours of our campaign...time sure does fly by fast!

I am thrilled and beyond that we have reached our goal early and we still have a few days to spare. Lot's of exciting things have happened in the past few days. I now have lighting in the front area, above the pastry display and seating. Our floors have been finished and my office is set up (thanks Emily and Lindsay!). It looks super cozy in here. I'm still waiting for my glass display to be installed, sign work to be finished, coffee station to be finished, website to be launched and about a zillion, tiny tasks to be completed. There are so many moving parts to opening up a business!

Every day it takes on a new form and I'm so happy how things are turning out. The only bummer news, I've received so far is that city will be doing sewer construction right next to my shop about a week after I open. Perfect timing! Well, we will just make the best of it. I'm hoping that it won't take more than a few weeks to complete. Sidewalk will be open so that's a sliver lining to some not so awesome news.

So with 71 hours to go, my hope is that we can keep pushing to raise a little extra funds. Especially, with the construction going on it might hinder our jump start, so every little bit counts! If you can please keep sharing this or bump up your donation, it can make all the difference. I truly appreciate all of your generosity.

It's been so amazing to watch this transformation and receive all of this love from friends, supporters and total strangers. I'm so blown away by it. I just know it's going to be a special kind of place, where YOU can sit back and enjoy all kinds of dreamy, buttery goodness. We are so excited to share our kind of SUGAR LOVE with all of you. We are aiming for September 4th as our opening date. I will keep you posted. Fingers crossed!




We made it! OMG....I don't even know what to say. THANK YOU!

We've still got another 5 days to go and even though we've reached our goal, let's keep pushing! Anything extra will be put to good use with start up costs, much needed kitchen equipment, store front signage, smallwares and re-building our website. It's crazy how no matter how budget conscious you can be, everything adds up so quickly!


My heart is overflowing with gratitude from all of your AMAZING support! What a crazy ride this has been. I am excited to refocus my energy back to what I do best and bake my little heart out! YOU helped make this happen and I will never forget it.

I will be seeing you my new shop!

GAAAAAH...6 Days!

Happy Sunday!

I spent the morning planting flowers in front of the shop with one of my dearest friends, Julia Pugh. She has been my sidekick for many events and she was the most amazing assistant during my cookbook photo shoot. I love her dearly and I am truly grateful to have such supportive friends like her.

So many friends and people in the neighborhood have been stopping by to say hello. I really can't wait to build our own, sweet community of friends on Alberta Street and beyond. YOU are also apart of this awesomeness and it means so much to me that you believe in our success!

So we've got 6 days to go and $3,716 to raise! Just 149 more contributions of $25 or 75 of $50 and we will successfully fund. If we are even one dollar short, NO MONEY will pass through our hands. Even if you can bump up your contribution by $10 it can make a huge difference for us. 

We are ready to make some SUGAR MAGIC! Please help us get there!
