I believe in tutus

“Girls. You never know what they’re going to think.”

- Holden Caulfield
(as written by J.D.Salinger)

I believe in in once upon a time, and fairy tales, tutus, and yards of ribbon and lace. In bows and ball gowns, and blue jeans with holey knees. I believe in twirling until you fall down, dizzy and breathless. . . in singing with the loudest voice you have, stomping around, and giving it all you’ve got. In tree-climbing, tiaras, and all things that sparkle and shine. In river-wading, and butterflies, and lightning bugs. . .I believe in fairies, and unicorns, and dinosaurs, too. In satin slippers, and lipstick, and tennis shoes with laces unfurled. I believe in froof, and frills, magic wands, and cookies after bedtime. I believe in Prince Charming, but I also believe we wouldn’t have gotten along. . .I believe in puddle-jumping, playing dress-up, and that mud isn’t always to be kept out of. I believe in whimsy, and glitter, rainbows and rainy days. I believe that every lady needs to be a princess every now and then – no matter what age. I believe in happily ever after. . .

And so does my girl.

    wow, what a tutu! She’s adorable, and I bet she has all kinds of fun in that. Did she do any twirls?

      Thanks Maygan! I made it myself!
      And yes, yes she does. . .she twirls and whirls and she hops, skips, and jumps. Tutus are too-too fun for fairy princesses-in-training! ; )

    I loved reading this post. Girls can twirl into a heart, and muss it up a little too. It’s all good. Mine love dancing and muddy soccer and sprinkles and roller blading.
    They would have totally loved that tutu , beautiful photos.
