Collage Friday - Wedding Edition

I am still on cloud 9 from last weekend when my oldest married the love of his life! 

We traveled just over an hour to the beautiful quaint town of Ridgefield, CT.  The town was something out of a novel set in the New England area. 

The children are no strangers to hotels these days and the Hampton Inn in Danbury did not disappoint!

Our two girls wore matching dresses from Tahari and Zachary wore his first suit coat and tie.   They were so excited for this day to come!

I wanted to say something at the reception but every time I started putting pen to paper, I would start to get this lump in my throat and tears rolling down my eyes.

I decided I needed to make it a humorous speech...worked out perfect!

This picture makes my heart SING!  Thank you Jesus for my four children and their relationship with each other. Aren't the flowers in the background beautiful...the entire garden area was breathtaking.

At their request,  keeping most of their special day private, I am sharing just a few pictures.  This picture of them right after their exchange of vows was perfect...the perfect happy smiles on them both!  The flowers were beautiful and the attention to detail was impeccable.  Kerri even had the children's table (all cousins) all decked out with stuff for them to do. 

Dancing...eating...fellowship...some champagne was PICTURE PERFECT!  

Back to school.....

We are finally getting back to our full time school schedule next week and the kids are less than excited...the summer schedule has done them well!

We have one more camping trip coming up next weekend and soccer practices and gym classes keeping our nights busy.  Fall crockpot cooking has started and I am hoping for our first fire in the fireplace soon! 

If you missed my post on the new Kiwi Crates and the different age levels they are offering now, you must check it out!  Perfect Christmas Gifts!

Enjoy your day and be blessed!

The pictures of the wedding are beautiful. It simply brought tears to my eyes to imagine what that must be like for a momma's heart to see a child marry. Wow!

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!�…
