ballerina girl- a dress for me

IMG_9525

The Little Miss Priss has a dance in heart. Every time she hears music (or even any kind of beat), the girl starts groovin’. She takes after her mama- I love to dance. And I like to think that what I lack in ability, I make up for in enthusiasm. Perhaps that’s why this ballerina-esque [...]
