June was a BLURRRR - what we did in pictures

I can't believe it's July already.  June was a complete blurr right now.
We traveled a lot and had a chance to fellowship with so many friends that live far away.

We started June with our Father's Day Weekend camping trip.  

In my usual fashion, I had a theme to the weekend. FOOTBALL.. Since my hubby is a Vikings fan
and my "other" hubby (BFF Husband) is an Eagles fan - we decided to have a SUPERBOWL theme with both of those teams in it!  (you might call is "fantasy" football...lol)

The weather was great and we had a blast, as always!


The weekend right after that we saw our BFF's again at my "other hubby's" 35th Birthday - they live 2 hours north of us in Upstate NY.  It was a great weekend filled with parties, slip-n-slides and bonfires.

The flowers in the heart stones is in my friend's garden (not same friend as the other three pictures). Love this idea!

We left their house to travel another hour northeast to an old friend's house that I had not seen in 7 years!  When we left Central New York over 7 years ago, leaving my friends behind was the hardest thing I did.  My son Zachary and my friend's son were each other's first friends! 

 It was great to see how her family grew of the years and to rekindle our friendship. The kids had a ball!








We were blessed to have seen our other BFF's (they relocated to Orlando a year ago) not once but twice in the month of June!  (Getting my friends fill this month!)  We had fun times - bonfires, outdoor movie night, pigging out on food and celebrating the summer!

To end the month, we had our Summer Kick Off celebration at our library - to kick off the Reading Club!  In addition to a wonderful Science Program - Sammie received her very own library card!  Offical!  She is so excited! I am so proud!   

A personal goal of mine (if you remember back in January) was to finally start and finish a book!  It's been years since something has engaged me to where I wanted to finish the book - well thanks to Melanie Shankle and her books - I am hooked again on reading!


We started off July with an End of the School Year Luau party with our friends (more on that to come...)


I am writing with a sigh of relief that July is not as busy as June...we only have 1 camping trip scheduled and no other travel plans.  August and September is another story....my oldest gets married in September - a HUGE Milestone in our family life!  I can't wait to witness this union! 

In case you missed the June Graham Blanchard post - you can catch up on what the Mom Mentor's are talking about this month - Bringing the Bible Alive with our Children



Enjoy your Fourth of July and if you have not had a chance to check me out on FACEBOOK - come on and join in!

Until then - my friends - be blessed!

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 ordered..it's HUGE and adorable. The printing is clear and impressive!�…
