The cabin in the woods had been abandoned for years, but one night, a candle burned in the window. Harper blew out her match and watched the wax slowly turn soft at the base of the wick. She gripped the edge of her cardigan and felt overwhelmingly foolish.
The Saga of the Zucchini Bread
When I was in elementary school, I had to do my first big science project - tri-fold board and everything. This whole journey started innocently enough, my dad helped me pick up zucchini seeds, pots, and soil.
