Shorty

I am 5’4.25″ tall.

Don’t forget to visit the Pleated Poppy today to check out what everyone’s been wearing!

  • My poor husband. He’s truly concerned for his future with me. And my crazy memory loss. For instance, the other day we had a long conversation about a specific subject while on the phone.
