It seems as if you’ve been walking for days. You check your notebook and assure yourself that you have followed the directions “past the wild growing raspberries and sage bushes, then through the field of lavender.” Pausing now to note your location with your graphite pencil and completely ready to give up, you smell a combination of baking cocoa, clove & vanilla. You look up and there it is in the distance - a secret cottage at the edge of the woods. The scents are so familiar; you know she’s there.
