About Kiyomi...

🌷Greetings! ⛵

🇺🇸 I live in the Central Valley in California which is situated between the great 🌊 Pacific Ocean and the beautiful ⛰️ Sierra Mountains.

I currently am the full-time caretaker for my mom who had a stroke. When she was up and about she planted over 100 fruit trees on our 5-acre property. However, now she can no longer walk or talk, so our days can be challenging, but definitely not without hope.

Although professionally trained in the culinary arts field, I work from home as a creative. One sample (Postcrossing meetup card) of my graphic design work can be found on the Forum here:

One of the biggest challenges in writing postcards is the tiny little space we are limited to.

♥ However, please share something you are grateful for.♥
🌱 Expressed gratitude is a wonderful place to start 💐.

♥♥ I Would enjoy knowing: ♥♥
What do you truly enjoy doing?
That special thing you'd like to do someday.
What hobbies/talents/gifts––do you have...(or perhaps that you wish to master one day)?

Cheers to you and warm regards,

໒( ♥ ◡ ♥ )७
P.S. Send the postcard that inspires you.

Sad and disconcerting:
Postcrossing members who send cards, but write nothing.
