Giles is settled back in at Savannah for his junior year. This time the Composer drove him out to school alone, and the van was stuffed pretty full even without the rest of us, since Giles is setting up in an apartment this semester. His roommates were already at the school when we were still here shopping for household items, so Giles was able to call them and find out what the kitchen already had. You'll never guess: a skillet, a snow cone machine, and a chocolate fountain.
So we piled the cart high with things more basic.
It's hard to say goodbye again but Savannah is the right place for Giles. The artistry and sensibility of the city, the professors who push him, the video shoots he works on with friends--they are good for him.
In honor of this artistically nourishing place, I have a wonderful gift for my readers. On our last trip to Savannah I fell in love with a soap and bath product store called Nourish. The girls bought me treats there--my favorite was the chocolate bar of soap that looked and smelled so much like the real thing that every night in the bath I would get to craving a bite of it . . .
Nourish has donated a giveaway to us! Leave a comment and on Friday at noon I'll randomly pick one. If yours is the winning comment, you'll get to choose three bars of soap from this beautiful outfit. Lovely! (Domestic addresses only please, on this one),
