Oh, hey there! Welcome to my blog!

Let me start by saying that it was really hard for me to come up with a theme for my blog. I contemplated topics around food, fitness, and beauty, but I really wanted to make my posts more personal and fun. Going through my interests, I realized that a lot of my fondest memories and experiences have happened outside, in the nakedness of nature. 

Cue in Naturally Mercedez! I have always been fond of nature; going on walks and hikes, canoeing, camping, ice skating – basically anything outdoors! When people ask me what my favourite season is, I always say late spring and early fall which I would consider a viable answer because two halves make a whole, right? These are the two times in the year where the weather is absolutely perfect, colours are changing, and flowers in both seasons are beautifully blooming. 

I’m here to show you what I’ve been up to in the past, along with adventures that I will take throughout the rest of 2016. With this blog, I hope that I can inspire you to go out and enjoy what Mother Nature has to offer!
