Border Patrol

I love the internet. I really, truly do. And I'm not ashamed to admit it because, oh, the places you'll go and, my, the people you'll "meet" whilst traversing its web. Like, say, Canada and its fine folks.

I've long been enamored with Canada. From Vancouver Island's lush forests to Montreal's francophile flair to the Atlantic provinces craggy coasts (not to mention its puffins! PUFFINS, people, puffins!!!), the nation to the north has always called to me. And now, through the magic of the interwebs, I've had the immense fortune of finding some kindred homesteading souls up there.

Well Preserved, Crackers, and Nest are three lovely blogs from three incredibly gifted sets of bloggers (each one is hosted by a dynamic duo). Their collective photography, recipes, resources, and anecdotes will have you pointing your compass north faster than you can say "eh?" Each one of these blogs has introduced themselves to me personally and supported all of my writing efforts and I, in turn, have become their loyal fan.

I invite you to check them out. Don't be surprised if you find yourself wishing you were a Canuck, too.

Another cool blog from the land of puffins (aka Newfoundland) is

Disclaimer: I've been writing a weekly post for them, and I've been known to hang out with the crowd that are responsible for the blog, so I'm a bit biased ;)

Since moving to VT I've totally fallen for Montreal. Somehow I sleep easier knowing there is an H&M less than 90 minutes away. And if I've had enough to drink, and I close my eyes in a bar, I can *almost* convince myself I am back in Paris.

I've adored that Canadian video for so long. It just cracks me up like nothing else!

As just about any well-mannered Canadian will tell you, come on over for tea! It's always on, especially here in the Atlantic Provinces. :)
