The Official H&P 2017 Summer Bucket List

This post includes affiliate links which help support Honey & Pine. We are knee-deep into summer and loving it! This is the first summer we've spent outside of the deep south and, as odd as that it is to say, it's very different. Just the other night Brandon and I were talking about how cool the evenings are here. It's weird being able to step outside during the summer and not be overwhelmed by temperatures in the high 90's. We're trying to embrace these summer days and not let a single moment pass us by. The seasons seem to fly by so … [Read more...]

My Favorite Summer Sandals Under $50

Last week I had my photo shoot at the local farmer's market here in Charleston, WV with Kelly from Kelly Broyles Photography. Everything about my shoot was going fabulous until I realized I didn't have summer shoes to match the yellow lace dress I'd bought for the shoot. The night before my shoot I ransacked my closet for a pair of wedges or sandals but no luck. I ended up wearing a pair of black pumps which looked fine but were totally not what I was wanting to wear. I kept asking Brandon, "What happened to all of my shoes?!?" before realized … [Read more...]

Happy 4th of July!

Happy 4th of July!!! This is one of my family's favorite holidays. Every year my family gathers in West Virginia (our home state) and celebrates out on my parent's hunting farm. We have a lot of veterans and service members in our family. Today, we take the time to honor our country's history and show appreciation for all of those who fought and currently fight for our freedoms. I don't have much to say today other than may God bless our country and our soldiers (both past and present). Follow me on Instagram for this year's 4th of … [Read more...]

Things To Do in Charleston, WV This Summer

Summer is here and over here in the LaMar household we are really excited about it. It's our first summer here in Charleston, WV and I want to embrace it. I've already planted a few veggie plants for us to harvest soon and the fresh herbs are doing great. The dogs have been loving being outside, running around off-leash, and chasing the rabbits that linger around our yard. Don't worry, they haven't actually caught any rabbits, they are all about the chase, lol. As much as we are all loving being outdoors, I told Brandon that I want to make sure … [Read more...]

Hello Summer!

It's the first day of summer!!! Officially. If you're anything like us you've probably been in "summer mode" for a few weeks but now it's for real and I'm loving every second of it. It's so funny spending summer in West Virginia this year instead of down in Atlanta, GA. Every morning when I wake up and open the windows I see fog rolling up out of the mountain valley. By 9am or 10am it's gone, the sun is shining, and the mountains are a brilliant green which is gorgeous, but not the city view I'm used to seeing. We are adapting but it's … [Read more...]

8 Ways to Save for Summer Vacation

This post includes affiliate links which help support Honey & Pine. The official start to summer is only two weeks away! If you're anything like us, you're anxiously waiting to hit the road for your summer vacation. Brandon and I had planned to road trip this year but moving killed that dream. Now, instead of a cross-country road trip we are looking at flights or nearby destinations. Living in West Virginia, we have a lot of major cities within a reasonable driving distance. Philadelphia, Cincinnati, Baltimore, and a host of … [Read more...]
