My Favourite Articles and Links This Week
Have you heard that Cape Breton, a stunning island on the east coast of Canada, is offering refuge to Americans if Trump gets elected. It’s not a joke- despite being an unbelievably beautiful island, the population has been leaving for the mainland for more jobs for a while , so they are looking to get more people living there. So ideal if you work from home, I guess! Their campaign almost seems like a joke, but they are completely serious.
Here are 8 creative skills you can learn in a weekend. Links to free guides for each are included! I totally want to learn to draw. Not super artistically, just to to be able to draw cartoon cats for Lila, that sort of thing.

You guys know I’m all about the easy one-pan (or pot) meals, so this honey garlic roast chicken and veggies is checking all the right boxes- it all goes into one over safe pan, you bake for about half an hour. My kind of dinner! Pinterest link is here, and the original recipe post is here.

This weekend is actually our 7th wedding anniversary, can you believe it? It sort of caught us be surprise, so we aren’t sure what our plans are yet. Might try to go a movie, since I don’t think I’ve stepped foot inside a movie theater in over a year… there was a time in my life when I went to the movies every week, and was up to date on everything! Now I find myself watching the Oscars and thinking, “Who’s that?” Oh well.
