We are off to Florida…

Yes we are taking Bijan to school. Straight into hurricane season we go. They have real weather in Florida. This will be a test for Bijan who having been born and raised in California has not experienced real weather. I told him he had better learn how to hang on and drive in the rain.

Bijan is going to Full Sail an entertainment media collage. It sounds very fun – I would like to go! He will be majoring in Recording Arts. This is the first time he has lived away from us even though he will be 20 in October. This has not been an easy transition. I was not prepared for how I would feel. I always knew this was coming but it sure feels sad when it comes to pass. I am sure I will feel better when I see that he is set up there, when I see the school and that he is living in an apartment and not on the street. I have to be honest the things I think up sometimes are so strange and worrisome. I need to just simply let go. I need to just let him go and make his way. He will be fine. I have a lot of faith in him. Besides I have gone online and found the closest Whole Foods Market, the Doctors office, the nearest Hospital and a Persian Restaurant. I can see his place on Google Maps too! Yep, he’ll be fine, I just need to let go a little.

NOTE: If you place an order between 8/28/08 and 9/5/08 your order will ship on 9/8/08 as we are not in the office. I'll tell you all about Florida when I return!

Ok I know I am supposed to be selling wonderful gifts or at least talking about wonderful gifts but lately I have been preoccupied. Watched To Kill a Mockingbird last weekend and boy was he HOT!

Soulful Giving

I am thrilled to announce that Soul of the Rose was able to write the first checks out to our national and international charities this month. We previously donated to our local charity following the first quarter. As I mentioned Soul of the Rose Gifts donates 10% of all sales to local, national and international charities. I began this tithing business model in 2008 and I am happy to report that all is going well. I am sending out a big thank you to all my customers who's purchases are helping to make a difference one gift at a time!

What girl dosn't need a flask?

Well, there may be some, but I find them to be a handy dandy tool to have on hand and they make great gifts! Ours flasks are handmade and each one is uniquely designed. They hold 6 oz of your favorite brew and they come in a black velveteen pouch. These are in limited quantities so if you like one you had better order it right away. They can be found at Soul of the Rose in the Interesting Accessories page.
