I love this town!

Athens population: 86,000 or so.
Savannah population: Around 135,000.

Savannah is more than 1.5 times larger than Athens, but Athens has so much more to offer! There are little gems tucked away all over the place. So much character. Yesterday's find: Daily Groceries Co-op. It's a co-op that's open to the public, but members get special benefits.

How can you not love a place with a sign like this?

They have a great bulk section that includes things like olive oil, balsamic vinegar, honey, and herbs! They have a great little produce section too that includes local and organic produce. The best part is, you can become a working member. In exchange for every hour spent cleaning, stocking, cashiering, or performing other miscellaneous tasks, you get a 5% discount on your groceries that week, up to a 20% total discount!

My favorite find yesterday: Kombucha Wonder Drink, green tea and lemon flavored. Ever tried kombucha tea before? Yesterday was my first taste, and I thought it was delicious! Kombucha has lots of health benefits and is a good alternative for soda-lovers Plus, you can make your own at home, but I didn't want to get into that without a sample first. I saw kombucha starter kits on sale at the Co-op, and I think I'll have to pick one up soon!

If I could pick anywhere else to live, it would be Athens. I love the shops downtown and Redeemer Presbyterian is my favorite church. I almost want to move there just for that.
