It’s Over…

Yes. I finished writing the finale of all of my pirate stories. It took me a couple of minutes just to write “The End” and to click “Save Draft”. I got teary as I stared at the last sentence of the story, knowing that it was all over. My pirate stories have been so important to me and I feel like all of the characters are real people. They’re a part of me. Now that it’s over, I just feel so sad. Knowing that I will never again write another pirate story… :(

I have written 14 total pirate stories. The last one is my longest having 20 parts! I hope that you will all enjoy each of these stories just as much as I did writing them. I can’t wait to start posting them again! ๐Ÿ˜€

Around the time I was making Fire Cove Season 2, I made some posters for it that never got posted, so I thought I’d share one of them with you today :)

image

Ahhh…. Wow. Jake and Victoria……. The beginning of it all….. :’)

Since pirate stories have been my main focus for such a long time, I feel like it’s going to be hard to start writing other stories. I’m hoping that I’ll get into the flow of writing non-pirate stories easily and feel just as comfortable writing those as I did writing my pirate stories :)

How do you feel when you finish writing a story, or any big project that you’ve poured your heart into? Relieved? Happy? Sad?

My Brother Got ENGAGED!!!

EEE!!! I am just the happiest little sister right now!! Today was truly an AMAZING day!! My brother, Jordan has been dating his awesome girlfriend, Aaryn for almost a year (it’ll be a year tomorrow!) and today he popped the question! Jordan and Aaryn went skydiving for their one year anniversary of being together, and my mom made a huge banner that said “Aaryn, will you marry me?” so that as she was falling she could see it! Jordan wanted both families involved so we were all there to see him propose and it was just seriously so amazing!

I am seriously SO happy for them!! They are a perfect pair and they love each other with all their hearts! I’m so excited to soon be able to call Aaryn my sister ๐Ÿ˜€

CONGRATULATIONS, JORDAN AND AARYN!! I love you both SO much and I can’t wait to see what amazing plans God has in store for you!!!ย <3

Sorry!

Hey everyone! I’m so sorry I’ve been inactive for like over a week! I woke up sick Tuesday morning and have just been lying on the couch watching movies all day. I’m feeling better, but I’ve got a pretty bad cough and stuffy nose. Bleah! ๐Ÿ˜›

I promise that I will get a post up (this one doesn’t count LOL!) as soon as I am feeling completely normal again! :)

And just to make you smile, here’s another picture of Ella!

image

She opened her eyes at 2 weeks old!! AAH! She’s already changing so much!! I can’t wait until she comes home!! ๐Ÿ˜€

I hope you’ve all been having a niceย week! :)

Talk to you all soon!

Princess Ella Reign

EEEEEEEEE!!! Okay, so I hadn’t planned to tell you all just yet, but I can’t contain my excitement!! We are getting….. A PUPPY!!!!! OH MY GOSH I AM SOOOO EXCITED!!!! ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€

image

My mom and I went to go see the puppies today (they’re only a week old!) and I seriously died! They were all so cute and my mom and I both fell in love with the cutie above! Isn’t she adorable?!ย Her name is Princess Ella Reign and will be called Ellaย ๐Ÿ˜€

And in case you’re wondering, the photostory series I started – An Unexpected Gift, is a TRUE story! It’s all about how we came to get this little puppy. Annika is me and Riven-Delle is my mom ๐Ÿ˜‰ I had planned to tell you all that it was a true story after the series ended, but I just couldn’t wait. I was WAY too excited!! So I’m not going to reveal too much about the story of how we got her (well, you know, we don’t have her yet ๐Ÿ˜‰ ), because I want you all to find out in the series still, so make sure you read that! The next part will be up very soon! :)

I am SO excited to bring Ella home!! She is the sweetest little thing! ๐Ÿ˜€

Happy Birthday To An Awesome Brother!

Today is my older brother, Jordan’s 22nd birthday!! ๐Ÿ˜€

image

Jordan is seriously awesome! I’m so thankful for the great relationship we have and I pray that it will never weaken! Jordan is super crazy, absolutely hilarious, and makes the best faces. He is also so sweet, loving, and caring. He also gives awesome “Jub hugs” as me and my mom call them!

I have so many great memories with Jordan. From being so bored that we are just lying around in the living room watching weird PBS Kids shows, just waiting for Word Girl to come on (we loved that show!), also me wanting to play with him and he drops on the floor saying “I am paralyzed” and me having to drag him (literally!) ย around the house. We have chased each other around the house, slamming doors to get away, and played several LEGO video games together. Jordan has always made me die laughing. He sleeps in the craziest positions on the couch and lip sings to songs so dramatically! XD

Aside from being super crazy and hilarious, Jordan is also super caring. He loves to give hugs and he’s always there to make me smile (even when I’ve been mad at him. I can never be mad at him any longer than a minute cause he just makes me laugh!). He’s always been himself everywhere he goes and he loves the Lord!

Thank you, Jordan, for being such an amazing brother! Happy Birthday!! ๐Ÿ˜€

Older Girls Love AG, Too!

Hello everyone! I’m sure a few of you are wondering why I haven’t posted about TrulyMe yet, but don’t worry! There will be a post on that within the next few days :)

Right now, I am here to ask YOU to email American Girl. Why, you ask? Well, here’s why;

Yesterday, I went to enter in the Truly Awesome Sweepstakes that AG is having now through August. Each week you can enter to win a different prize and this week it’s your choice of a TrulyMe doll and the new Love to Layer Accessories. So, guess what happened when I went to enter? I was putting in my birth date and I couldn’t go any farther back than 2001. I clicked on the rules and saw that only girls ages 8-13 are allowed to enter. That is really unfair! AG should not have an age limit in the sweepstakes! Girls ages 14 and up (and I mean WAY up), LOVE AG still! How couldย they block us out from being able to enter?

I wrote an email to AG about this because it is just wrong. They clearly do not realize how many of their customers are older teens and women. It’s up to us to make that known to them! So here’s what I’m asking;

Write to AG telling them how you are disappointed that you can’t enter the sweepstakes because of the age limit, or tell them that you think it’s unfair to the older girls. Then, if you have a blog, post about this situation on your blog and ask your readers to write as well. Let’s spread this around! The more letters/emails AG receives, the better. I don’t know if they’ll even do anything about it, but I feel that we need to get our point across! :)

Enjoy your night, everyone! :)

I Am Writing Up A Storm!

Whew! I have been writing SO much lately! I wrote two whole stories plus I finished a couple, and now my brain is already thinking, “What next?!” ๐Ÿ˜€ I made a list of all of the series that I have in the works and there are 15 total!! Three of them are a trilogy that I’m making with Emma and we’ll be starting the first one REALLY soon! ๐Ÿ˜€

image

Speaking of series, above is a poster for The Disappearing Heirs Season 2: The Crown Reclaimed, so please feel free to print it out and hang it up in your (or your doll’s) bedroom! :)

I finished typing up the last few parts of The Disappearing Heirs today, and I hope you’ll join me on Saturday, March 21st to see the series finished!! I’ll be posting one part every hour and once it’s done, there will be a couple other TDH related posts! ๐Ÿ˜€

I’m so excited for all the photostory series I’ll be posting this year! It’s gonna be so much fun!! ๐Ÿ˜€
Well, I’m gonna get back to my writing. Bye for now! :)

The Disappearing Heirs Season 2~ The Crown Reclaimed: Part 3

image
Monica, Corinne, and I gathered into a circle to discuss what we were going to do from here, but I was hardly paying any attention to them.

image
“Allie? Hey, are you okay?” Corinne asked, noticing that I was stuck in a daze.

image

“Oh, yeah I’m fine. Monica, Corinne, I have to go to Feorden.” I stated.

image
“Allie, Feorden is a distant land in turmoil. Without a proper ruler, everyone has become confused with their lives, and they don’t know what they’re doing.” Monica said worriedly.

image
“I have also heard that the stewardess of the castle in Feorden is absolutely cruel. She doesn’t care about anyone, only money and ruling.” Corinne told me.

image
“Then that just gives me even more of a reason to go. I have to save my people. If I didn’t do anything to help them, then I would be just as bad as the stewardess.” I said, quite determined.

image
“You seem very passionate about this, Allie. And who are we to stand in your way?” Monicaย said with a smile.

image
“Thank you, Monica.ย All my life I’ve searched for my right path, and now it’s been revealed to me. Without you two, I never would have found it.” I said gratefully.

The next morning….

image

“Goodbye, Allie. Please keep in touch with me, okay? It won’t be improper for us to talk now that you’re a princess, too. I always knew there was a bit of royalty in you.” Katrina said with tears in her eyes. She had never spoken to me so kindly before, and I knew that she truly meant it.

image
“Thank you so much, Katrina! I promise that we will see each other again, and I will write to you.” I promised.

image
“So, where are you going from here?” Monica asked Corinne.

image

“To tell you the truth, I had hoped that I could get a job with your agency, but I suppose that since I didn’t arrest the man you were after, I don’t get it, huh?” Corinne asked, her eyes disappointed.

image
“Everyone makes mistakes, Corinne. Even I do. I wouldn’t not recommend you to the agency just because you didn’t make an arrest. You have all the qualifications of a detective, and I would gladly recommend you.” Monica said sincerely.

image

“It sounds like you two are saying goodbye.” I said I stepped up to Monica and Corinne.

image
“Not exactly. We were talking about Corinne working with me.” Monica corrected.

image
“Oh, well, I was thinking – well actually hoping that you and Corinne would come with me to Feorden.” I said hopefully.

image
“It would be an honor, Allie.” Corinne accepted. “I’d love to come, too, Allie, but I have to get the princesses back to their homes.” Monica said.

image
Then Katrina came over to our group. “Monica, why don’t you call for some other detectives to help us? You can go with Allie and Corinne and I’ll be fine with the other princesses until the detectives arrive.” Katrina offered.

image
“Hmm…” Monica thought it over. “Alright! Are you sure you’ll be okay here, Katrina?” Monica asked.

image
“Definitely!” Katrina said with a smile.

image
I threw my arms around Katrina and said, “Thank you so much!” Katrina was surprised by the hug, but she did hug me back. “You’re welcome.” She said sweetly.

image
We said our last goodbyes and headed on our way to Feorden. We weren’t sure what exactly lay ahead on our journey, and we carried nothing with us, but our determination, courage, and most important of all, our friendship.

That ends Part 3! Part 4 coming in one hour! ๐Ÿ˜€

I Completely Forgot!!!

Oh, dear!! I’m SO sorry! I had planned to post the entire season 2 of The Disappearing Heirs today, but I didn’t finish making the posts, and I forgot that I had some scheduled, so I’m really sorry, but the rest of the parts won’t be posted today. I will have the next ones up really soon though, because all of the pictures are already taken :)

And yes, today is my birthday! I will have a fun birthday post up later on today! ๐Ÿ˜€

Have a nice day! :)
