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.
