I’m Lisa Reitz, owner of White Sky Woods Homestead, and for me nothing inspires creativity quite like nature. Each day nature guarantees something of awe – from something as grand as aurora borealis to something as tiny as a flower of blue-eyed grass. I love to capture the beauty that surrounds us with photography. I also enjoy working on fun hyper local-focused creative projects.

Here is where you’ll find what I’m currently working on. If you happen to make a purchase, I am so grateful!

Always Sunny in Jacobsville

It started with hatching a seemingly crazy idea, finding the perfect place to call home, then building the life we dreamed and planned for, one small step at a time. We didn’t want to grow old saying, “I wish I would have done that,” like we’ve seen people regretfully do. “It’s always sunny in Jacobsville” became a motto to us – a beacon of hope and a mindset of positive thinking as we created our dream lifestyle in Jacobsville, MI. We’ve followed that motto since 2009. It may not ACTUALLY always be sunny in Jacobsville, but when you love the life you live and hold onto a positive mindset, it really can always be sunny…wherever you go.

Are you living a life you love? If not, go ahead, take a small step to get started. You don’t need to get there fast, you just have to start moving.
