What I absolutely love about autumn is everything! I love the changing colors, bright & beautiful oranges, yellows, and reds. The crisp cool air blowing all the leaves off the trees leaving warm colors scattered about. It's simply beautiful.

Every year we go apple picking as a family. I love taking pics of my girlies up in the trees and watching them enjoy themselves. There is a wonderful orchard we go to that sells the best cider & maple doughnuts. Once we're all done we have enough apples to last all winter. The girls & I make TONS of applesauce mixed up with different fruits. Then we freeze what we can for pies, breads, & cobblers. This is a great family tradition that is eagerly anticipated all year long :)
I love fall. I missed it tremendously when we lived overseas in the tropics. I missed the trees set on fire with brilliant reds, oranges, and yellows. I missed the crispness of the air.
I feel like I missed out on fall last year. I fear I may "miss it" again as we are focused on trying to move right in the middle of all the fun that happens each fall.
My extra for this giveaway... my favorite family thing to do in the fall is HIKE!!!

Living in the northeast, we have the most beautiful leaves-as they change color!
Laura said…
Our fall family tradition is taking a trip to the cider mill for doughnuts, cider, and caramel apples. Then we walk through these trails to look at the changing leaves.

I am lucky enough to live in New England. I don't there's anything about Fall that I don't love. I love the crispness in the air, I love warm apple cider, I love wearing hoodies, I love the crunch of leaves beneath my feet, I especially love the bright colors in the trees. I love Fall in New England!!

Oh how I adore fall! I live in the country in Kentucky and we are SURROUNDED by trees of all different kinds--and they are almost all deciduous so the color display is AMAZING every fall!

but I also love the cooler weather because I get to wear my favorite clothes (jeans and hoodies!) and put my little boys in overalls!
Lisa M. said…
Fall is also my favorite season because it brings with it our annual holy festival season! For 10 days we get to be away from home drinking in God's word EVERY DAY and celebrating it with hundreds of like minded Christians! My husband is off work, my family flies in from the west coast to attend with us. What's not to love about that???
Naomi said…
I love Fall, when the temperatures drop and the squirrels start gathering acorns.
Naomi said…
Every year, when the temperatures drop, we start venturing out to the National Parks. PS students are back in school, and the parks are less crowded.
Sarah said…
Gosh...there are too many things to list that I love about fall. After a long hot summer, I love the temps, I love the fall smells. The smell of wood burning stoves, hot apple cidar, pumpkin anything. I love getting our long sleeves again to wear, and I love love love all the colors!
Sarah said…
We always take our boys to a corn maze. It is so much fun. We also pick out a pumkin. Start making more pies or cookies for the different holidays. This year I am also do ing a leaf collecting project with them discussing colors!
Kara said…
LOVE this! Love fall...pumpkins, leaves, corn beautiful!

I love several things about fall: the cooler weather, the changing colors of leaves, and the smell of apple cinnamon scents (which make a comeback each fall).

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!�…
