Hi there! I'm Leah Noble, and from 2012 to 2014 this was my blog, "Dream Big Cape Breton." I used this space to share my thoughts, my photographs, and my take on life in Cape Breton. I now blog over on my own website, but the archives of this site are all still here!
Dream Big Cape Breton is all about making a good life, and it's about connecting with the community here: check out the interviews I've done with other folks.
