What I am looking forward to this Spring....

Happy March 1st everyone.  I am so looking forward to Spring at this point. Don't get me wrong, I love the Winter and all it brings with it. I don't love the brown snow, flooding yard, sunshine but too cold to go out!  I wanted to share what I am looking forward to this Spring with the kids and family!

I know the flowers in the yard are dying to show their colors!

Our Deck garden!  Last year we added beans to our garden and they grew great!

Easter egg hunt - being Easter is so late in April this year, I am confident the weather will hold out for an outdoor hunt again this year.

We love to celebrate all things here.Earth Day is no exception. Love it when we can school outdoors!

Outdoor Movies!  We love movie night!

Bonfires - love these with the tea and a blanket on a cooler night!

Now that's a fire!

Our yard in late April - all the trees have burst open for a Spring time show.  If you look close, you will notice that this picture is actually part of my "button"!  This was taken from our upper deck.

The kids play yard!  They are looking forward to getting back out there!

What do you look forward to the most for Spring?


Oh I love these Spring/Summer pictures! I am glad it is March. Stopping by from NOBH

Spring is one of the most beautiful seasons. I love when the flowers start to bloom and the weather is just right. The kids can play outside without a jacket, but yet they are not dripping with sweat. Beautiful pictures. I love the kids play area.
Your yard is beautiful! So jealous of all the space!

Such fun things to anticipate. I look forward to green instead of brown. :)

Hi Melissa, I love your pictures of your yard. I can't wait for Spring! The snow and ice are almost all melted and I can feel Spring in the air!
We can't wait for spring here either!! Ready to start our garden soon!

New life. That's what I look forward to every Spring. Spring is incredibly significant and personal to me and I love the new life it brings to flowers, plants, gardens, trees...and even to people. Doesn't everyone just seem extra friendly in the Spring?

Your pictures are gorgeous and your yard is beautiful! It looks so private and peaceful. What a blessing!

I'm loving the little snowdrops and crocus that are popping up - each day there is a new burst of colour :)

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!�…
