Welcome to short girl, long island. I'm Michele. I am just shy of five feet tall + I reside on Long Island, hence the name of the blog. I have always loved to write, but have never put myself or my work out there, because there was always something else I had to do. After leaving my job in the corporate world, I decided this was the perfect time to start writing again. short girl, long island. will showcase various people that inspire me, recipes I concoct, music, photos and whatever else strikes my fancy at the moment.
Besides writing, I love pop culture, The Beatles, randomly coloring my hair pink, vintage bags, being silly, thrifting, car sing-alongs, cartoons, reading until I pass out with a book in my hand, cooking, making chocolates, designing cakes with my insanely talented mother, and indulging in therapy (of the retail persuasion).
Thanks for stopping by!
