Greetings from Kuna, Idaho! Kuna (pronounced "Q-nah") is a very small town with a population of about 17,000 people, and is located about 15 miles (24 kilometers) southwest of our state's capital of Boise. The name Kuna means "end of the trail," as the town originated as the last train stop on the way to Boise. The area is known for it's caves created by underground lava tubes, the Snake River Birds of Prey Conservation area, and Swan Falls Dam in the Snake River Canyon. It's a small farming community that seems far from city life, but it only takes about 15 to 20 minutes to get back into the "hustle and bustle". We love it here!
I am a wife, and the mother of one beautiful little girl. I received a degree in Business Management from Boise State University (Go Broncos!), and I currently have the privilege to be a stay-at-home Mom, volunteering at my daughter's school and helping her with her studies. Together, our family loves to dream about all of the places we'd like to one day visit. The list is long, believe me! Before our daughter was born, we traveled to England, France, Belgium, the Netherlands, Canada, and Jamaica, as well as many states (about half of them). My husband even had the opportunity to work in Germany for a few weeks. He loved that experience.
We also love to do arts and crafts, cook, bake, and try new foods, and we LOVE all things Disney! My husband and I are originally from the Southern California area. In fact, we once lived in Anaheim, right next to Disneyland for a while. We've also been to Disney World in Florida and Disneyland Paris, and hope to see all of the Disney attractions in time.
Idaho is known for its vast wilderness areas and outdoor recreation. We love skiing and tubing in the winter. In the summer, we enjoy camping, white water rafting and attending the local Shakespeare festival in an outdoor amphitheater along the Boise River.
We decided to join the Postcrossing community to learn more about all of the places we dream of visiting, so any kind of postcards teaching us anything fun about your home would be so appreciated! Local attractions, art, food and/or recipes (we love to cook!), holiday traditions, little known facts - you name it, we're interested! Of course, anything would be appreciated, please just share something fun! :)
We are also involved in Girl Scouts, and are planning to share all of the post cards we receive with our Girl Scout troop. We want all of our girls to benefit from the things we learn from the pen pals we make far and wide! :)
**SPECIAL PROJECT FOR 2015: We would like to make a display of holiday cards and traditions from around the world. No matter what time of the year it is, if you have a special holiday card or tradition you would like to share, we would love to add it to our display! From any holiday dear to your heart!
We're so excited to start exchanging with our new friends here! Thank you, and Happy Postcrossing!
