L’Etudiant Etranger Episode Three

Hello friends! I hope you guys are ready for another episode of L’Etudiant Etranger! In this episode, Gisselle will meet the whole Stone crew! Episode One Episode Two “We’re gonna be late!” Rudy whined.  He was eager to get to his cousins’  house, and while I was also looking forward to it, I knew the importance of first impressions. That’s why I had spent an hour fixing myself up, while Rudy had simply showered and thrown on a t-shirt. But see, Rudy already knew these people. They knew him, so it didn’t matter what he wore today. But for me, … Continue reading L’Etudiant Etranger Episode Three

Skipping Stones Episode 1 “Fame, Fortune, and Love?”

Hello friends! I am beyond excited to share today’s post with you! Lots of blood, sweat, and tears went into this post. I really wanted to get this post up in August, but it’s okay.

And…since we’re at about 350, let’s just call it an early celebration of 400. (if we ever get there) Anyway, I think this episode is something I can be proud of. My early readers … Continue reading Skipping Stones Episode 1 “Fame, Fortune, and Love?”

She picked it up a couple years ago at camp and … Continue reading Band Photoshoot (the third)

The Great Stuffie Bakeoff

Hello friends! Today I have a VERY fun post for you all…a bakeoff! With this post, I wanted to go back to my roots and begin with the photos. That’s how I used to to photostories, but now I’ve shifted to mainly writing first. Also, I didn’t edit these photos! Because…they look fairly good and I did NOT feel like editing 70+ photos for today. Enjoy! “Welcome to the Great Stuffie Bakeoff! I’ll be your host, Berry Blueberry!” “Meet our judges, Summer, Treasure, and Starburst! Anything you three have to say?” “I’m really excited to try all the food!” Summer … Continue reading The Great Stuffie Bakeoff
