School at the Bronx Zoo today...

What a FABULOUS day at the Bronx Zoo and in NYC overall today. Mid 70's with sun and a breeze, you can't get much better than that!  I took the kids back to the Zoo today for school!  We adventured over towards the Asian area with the monorail and Jungle World.  We had never been over that way in ALL our 2 doz. Zoo visits and boy are we glad we did!  We saw some awesome insects, creepy crawlers and animals! 

  So much to learn at the Zoo.

(I apologize for the quality of the pictures, I did not bring my big SLR camera and the pictures are not as good as usual)

I watched this river otter take this large stone and move it into the was too cool.

A taper, the girls were excited to know that one of Diego's animals was there!

This awesome black panther would not turn his head for the camera, every time I took the camera away, he would turn!  brat!

The kids getting ready for the monorail to take off!

The Bronx River from the Monorail, we went right over the top of it.

A wild horse from China. Way cool!

The kids talking to one of the animal helpers about Hyenas.
 Did you know that the female Hyena "runs the household"!

Went into the Tiger Mountain area to learn about Tigers, poaching and hunting them. Very sad 8(

We said a Wood Fairy might be living in the bottom of this tree!

What a great day!

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!�…
