About Katie...

Hello Postcrossing friends!

My name is Katie, and I live in Salt Lake City, the capital of Utah. We are twenty minutes away from great skiing and the beautiful Wasatch Mountains. Here's a short (5 minute) video showing my beautiful state.

I work at a company helping universities, schools, and businesses build online courses and programs. I live with my husband, our 2.5 year old daughter, my mother, and our pets, a dog and a cat. We have a very happy life, and I hope you will tell me all about your life too. :)

My avatar shows me with my husband at the Cape of Good Hope in South Africa, August 2019. Recently we have also visited Ireland, Austria, Hungary, Cuba, Italy, London, Paris, and South Africa. Next up: a visit to Oaxaca, Mexico with my husband.


What to send:

*I love ALL postcards, please send any card you love.*
(I gladly accept your own photos, self-drawn, and self-made cards; holiday cards, Zazzle or other self-printed cards!)

*Please write a message on your card that helps me know more about you personally. Postcrossing is all about the people for me, and I can't help but be disappointed when I receive a short (or no!) message!*

Some things I enjoy in life (perhaps this will help you choose a card?):
-good food (my husband is a chef, and we try to support local farms in our home kitchen!)
-beer and breweries (we also brew our own), coffee, nice cocktails or a glass of wine
-the outdoors (hiking and camping!)
-visiting national, state, and local parks
-growing fruits and vegetables
-history and geography
-visiting new places in my town or somewhere else (I travel regularly and have lived in many regions of the US)
-stopping to enjoy the beautiful things in life (a lovely view, a pretty flower, a nice sunset, someone laughing, a perfectly prepared meal)
-reading all genres of books, National Geographic magazine
-looking at maps
-playing video games
-warming myself in the sunshine
-knitting (kirbird on Ravelry)
-college football (the American kind), Clemson University
-the beach, the mountains
-music (folk, bluegrass, retro rock, alt-country, some pop)
-playing with my dog and cat

Thanks for helping me learn more about the world... I love Postcrossing! :D

PS - Thanks for reading my profile. If you're still not sure what to send, I love learning about where you live, so view cards, maps, culture, etc will always make me happy. Happy Postcrossing! :
