Astonished joy

I read the title of the post in a book today and the phrase stuck with me. Say it out loud. Its beautiful. Completely unrelated to what I wore today, but perhaps not. Twirling in this skirt is a joy and I was astonished to find a tutu that doesn't make me look like a 5 year old. My new skirt rounds out my summer wardrobe perfectly and I'll probably be wearing it at least once a week until it falls to pieces.
