Welcome to This Northern Native!

Hello there…My name is Laura and I am SO happy to have you here!

Just a few months ago, I decided to lay my lifestyle blog: Running With Shears to rest. I had that blog for FOUR freakin’ years. I deleted my entire blog, and felt a whole mix of emotions. For starters, I just wasn’t crazy about the platform I was on. I tried to make it work for sooo long. Ultimately, I decided it was time to make a HUGE switch… and jump on over to WordPress, for various reasons, but I wont bore you with the details! After a few months of not blogging, and totally missing writing, and interacting with others, I decided it was time to launch a new site, like pronto, Squanto.

This Northern Native is a lifestyle blog dedicated to delivering honest, real, and raw content for women from all walks of life. On this blog I will showcase major realness, and shed light on every day issues women face today. My hope through this blog is to encourage, and push my readers to be the best damn version of themselves possible. On this blog you will find a mashup of all things focusing on: every day lifestyle, my travels through the East Coast & beyond, beauty, and all things health/wellness.

I am so excited for this new venture through this platform of the blogging world, and I am delighted to have you along for the ride with me!
