Hi there! I'm Leah Noble, and this is my blog, "Dream Big Cape Breton." It's about my life, which is mostly lived on Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia, Canada.
It's about making a good life, and staying here instead of leaving, as long as that's possible.
It's about random photos, lovely places and appreciating what is here.

I’ve been in “the cave” a week now. It’s good. Less Facebook (although, yes, you’ll still see me post some things, and pop up here and there – due to the fact that I run the “Dream Big” group on … Continue reading
Last week my teacher, Heather Kennedy MacIsaac, decided to ‘treat’ us in her Design Culture class. We spend so much time on the computer, either researching, or editing, that it’s a real joy to bust out the art supplies and … Continue reading
