The Most Basic Sugar Cookie Recipe I Can't Live Without
We used to always make fun of my older brother for the way he frosted Christmas cookies. He was messy, to say the least, and each one frosted was another one eaten. A big family required a few dozen cookies, and he was usually off playing video games after he finished the two he attempted. I wouldn’t say it was a bother, though.

Quiet jazz fills my subconscious with a tingle of emotion as the aroma of raindrops fills the empty room. My head races through snapshots of days come and gone.

I close my eyes in an attempt to force calmness on my soul, but it instead finds peace in wandering.
A Walk in the Park
A bleak day plagues central Washington as I zip up my leather boots. Overcast skies and sporadic rain drops meet me as I lock the door to head out. I take a deep breath, pulling up to my destination down a windy dirt road. Say hello when you arrive, say goodbye when you leave, don’t give them a chance to protest. I repeat my mantras of positivity and kindness walking up to the first name. trying to keep myself closed off to their energy, I push myself past the first and onto the next.

Here we are again! For this final installation of my ghost hunting bucket list, I chose three of the locations that may not have the most terrifying and undeniable haunts, but instead have the most intriguing and challenging. I’m inclined to believe that not everywhere needs a tragic backstory to be haunted by its past, even though tragedy has a way of seeping into the walls more than positivity. These locations open my eyes to the many facets of haunted locations, reminding me that not everything is quite as it seems
