Welcome to Honey & Pine! If you’re here that means you share my interest in slow simple living and I’m excited to have you as a new part of our community.
We believe paradise can be found at home and it’s our mission to share that with you through our own mountain life, gardening tips, homemaking advice, and favorite comfort food recipes. In our first 5 years of marriage we moved 6 times before ultimately leaving Atlanta, GA for Charleston, WV. We realized the grass really is greenest in our own front yard and learned to find contentment here at home.
You may be in the same place we were before moving to the mountains if you
- Feel overwhelmed by a long list of demands for your time
- Compare yourself to others and feel inadequate
- Are in debt and financially over-extended due to pressure to “keep up with the Joneses”
- Rely on restaurants or fast food because you don’t have time for a home-cooked meal
Together, we’re going to try to break those destructive habits and embrace a life of simplicity, comfort, and everyday joy. We hope you enjoy Honey & Pine and that it makes you feel like home.
