I live ~40 miles from my state capital, St. Paul, in Minnesota within the United States of America; I work in the Information Technology field for a local government entity; I'm in my 30's; and I have one cat named Kitty who's been with me since 2006.
I stumbled into postcrossing because my grandmother left a large stamp collection to the family. In wanting to learn more about it, I found the Exploring Stamps YouTube channel by Graham Beck (linked below), and through that I discovered postcrossing, which I find to be absolutely fascinating!
I think my favorite thing about postcrossing is how it helps me learn of all the different areas and cultures around the world.

My mother plays piano and organ and has started her own YouTube channel to share music with the world. She absolutely LOVES talking with people and seeing views from other countries. So, if you also enjoy this type of music, I welcome you to check out her channel (linked below) and comment on any videos you enjoy. She responds to every one.
