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 an education software company doing marketing. I live with my husband 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 in Havana, Cuba, which we visited for ten days in April 2017. Recently we have also visited Ireland, Austria, Hungary, Venice, & London. Next up: Paris in October 2017.


What to send:

**I've just learned that I'm having a baby in February 2018! Would you like to help me decorate our nursery? I hope to hang some beautiful postcards with a forest or woodland theme, so if you happen to have lovely cards with forests, mountains, nature, or sweet animals (especially drawings), I would love to receive them! And perhaps you can share your best piece of advice for new parents. ;) **

*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

If you are curious to see the postcards I have received:

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