Our trip to Wintuk and All My Children

As some of you know we went in last Monday to NYC to see the Radio City Music Hall Christmas Spectacular. On Saturday we went back in again to see Wintuk. AMAZING SHOW! We took the train in again, the kids love this and we don't have to drive around looking for a place to park. Molly was loving the window seat as she was on the Hudson side looking at all the bridges and the shapes they made.   I was snapping pictures from the train of all the little bridges we passed, there were a lot of them. This trip in we met up with my husband family, as this is the yearly Christmas gift from his mother to all the grandkids and spouses and her children.  . There were 15 of us total Funny thing, I ran into an old classmate of mine that i went to high school with. What are the chances huh?!

The show was great, especially for children.  We took the subway over to 43rd street for lunch (1st subway ride for the kiddies). Tony Dinapoli's for lunch. LONG DAY for sure. We had to swing back by my mothers to pick up the littlest Newell who was too young to join us in the city. We were pleasantly surprised to find my eldest son and his girlfriend waiting at my mothers to see us! They only live about 10 miles from my mother.

Molly loving the river side of the train this time.

So many little bridges. Such a nice day but very cold.

I love the hustle and bustle of the city!

Good thing we had reservations...table for 15 please!

All my children....Sammie, Molly, Zachary, Kerri (the girlfriend) and Jeremy. Love when they are all together!

Shining the Spotlight - Finding Home Farms

Today at Woodwater Farmhouse, I am sharing with you another company that I feel you should know about.  

I first learned about Finding Home Farms on Instagram. Little did I know, Laura, one of the owners of Finding Home Farms, lives local to me, in the Hudson Valley of New York. 
You can read all about Laura and her lovely family at her blog about page. 
 I immediately knew that I had to try their products in my home. I have grown to love their products (shop), Laura's sense of style and her blog. 
Can we just stop now and talk about their packaging first.  It speaks to you before even trying the products. Simple, organic and calming.  Isn't it just darling with the little dove.
sigh....insert smile

I love her blog tagline - Gather Create Connect - that says it all, there in three little words. YOU already know before going forward that you are in for a special treat. 
I am only going to speak to a few of their many products because these are what we use in our home with our family.

Happy New Year and welcome back to our first
Shining the Spotlight
for 2017! 

 I hope you all enjoyed your holidays and are settled back into your routines.

Today I am so excited to introduce you to a company that has such a wonderful purpose behind it!  Jessica Griffis is a 17 year old college student paying her way through college selling Hilltop Design simple, natural and homemade products.  Jessica was also home educated!!! (dear to my heart)

Ya'll know I am all about the package as first impressions are so important. Don't you just love this sticker/stamp that she had on her package!  Spoke to me before I even opened it up and smelled the freshness of the products. 

I was impressed with the smell of the products, not overwhelming and artificial smelling at all. I felt safe using them on myself and my children. 

There are lip balms, lotions, scrubs, body butter, bath bombs and more.  The scrubs rival any other name brand and the bath bombs are THE BOMB!   The products are very …

Today at Woodwater Farmhouse, I am sharing with you a company that  not only meets but exceeds my expectation.  In service and product. 
Rustic Honey

The owner's name is Lauren Moran and I can see why her shop is so successful!  Rustic Honey is a lifestyle boutique. They offer women's clothing and accessories, children's wear, home goods, vintage finds, handmade gifts and more!  Let's look at this business card first. First impressions are everything in my book.  (I did not get a picture of the adorable chalkboard wrapping that the box was wrapped in but it was so cute!)

It's cute, to the point and shows her style.

Not even talking about the farmhouse towel that I ordered yet...but come on a hand written note to me personally and has all her social media outlets on there also. Clever!  On the opposite side of this personalized note is the cutest quote and picture. 

Ok I am getting to the towel I's HUGE and adorable. The printing is clear and impressive!�…
