About Winter & maple

Winter & Maple is a place to see and learn about the beauty of ordinary life in Canada. I aim to live wholeheartedly and share these stories with love in hopes of genuine connection, or at least to make you smile.

A letter from the editor

Hello, I'm Ilse Barrios

I started this blog as a journal to document my life in Canada. My family and I came to Calgary in 2016, and I’m still figuring out life around here.

In case you haven’t noticed yet, (ha!) English is my second language, so I apologize in advance if misspellings or lousy grammar get in the middle of the stories 🙂 but writing in English is an everyday challenge, and I love it!

By the way, this blog is not about procedures, regulations, or statistics, but about experiences, accomplishments, and perseverance. 

“Winter & Maple” is like a friend that does not hesitate to tell you the good, the bad, and the ugly, but with a humongous amount of optimism. (I can’t help it, I am an optimist at heart).

Lastly, I hope you find here what you are looking for, or at least, you have a good time and get inspired!

Love,

Ilse Barrios
