Last year we adopted our puppy, Finn. We are both huge Harry Potter fans We love taking advantage of all the things our city has to offer and keep busy going to restaurants, museums, plays, orchestra, doing beer and wine tours, taking cooking classes, even woodworking classes! Lately we've been exploring our city's extensive park system with the puppy.

Please also feel free to send postcards showing colorful scenes and objects, or something whimsical.
**Please no postcards of pets (cats, dogs), we already received a ton.**

- Your family
- Something you're looking forward to.
- A book recommendation
- A recipe you love
