France and Croissants. 🇫🇷🥐
Yep, I do believe they just go together (whether or not the croissant was actually created in France will be likely forever up for debate, but inarguably, it has become synonymous with the Gallic country). Which is why, one of the new illustrations created for TSLL’s 3rd book (chapter 4) and the new blog design created by Sarah Lœcker had to be a plate of croissants. Bien sûr! ☺️
In early 2022, I reached out to you, the readers of TSLL to come up with a title for the new notepad that would include this exclusive illustration, and what was chosen was a marriage of two readers’ contribution of ideas: The play on words of France’s motto fraternite, egalite, liberte and the homophone of the plural of croissants since two croissants are depicted in the illustration, croissance which means ‘growth’ in French. “Simplicité, Tranquillité, Croissance!” I invite you to read this detailed post that shares the photos that were croissant ‘models’ for the illustration, the decision for the blue detail on the plate and why this phrase fits so well with living simply luxuriously.
