About Me

**Update the weather in my state is still no better and has changed to freezing rain and snow mix. I am doing my best and getting everything out (have a mail box behind my house I walk to) but am unsure of pick ups. Also due to this somethings may get lost so please contact me if you haven't recieved your swap from me I want to make sure you get your mail I am no flaker!!!

**** Due to severe weather in my state the post office is not picking up mail on Wednesday 1/30, this is also limiting my ability to make it to the post office for the next couple days, temps are -50 with wind chill and I am so sorry but Mail (sending and receiving) is not worth my life and I hope you will all understand!

Hello! My name is Kortney and I LOVE mail, in all its forms!

If you have not received something from me please contact me prior to rating and I will resend! I always send but sometimes mail gets lost as we all know!

I love getting confetti and glitter in my letters so please feel free to send it! send it loose, send it in a little baggie I really don't care I just LOVE getting it! :)

I am married and have been happily so for 4 years, together for 7. 2 years ago I had gastric bypass, and have lost a bunch of weight and feel like a new person! I love trying new things I wouldn't have before! If you would like to swap Postcards or mail with me please let me know! I love receiving and sending mail that isn't a bill!!

I do not have kids (I don't plan on having them either)But I am a HUGE animal lover of all kinds, with one exception, horses. I am deathly afraid of horses.

I have a total of 5 for kids (would be more if I could) Kali is a tan tortie/tabby cat (we call her chicken, her first Halloween with us I got her a chicken costume... she HATED it, so it stuck) she was a rescue and picked me for sure. I was dead set to never have a brown cat, not sure why but I was, well I picked her up and she snuggled but I wasn't sold, however when I put her down to go see another cat she reached through the bars grabbed my hand, pulled it to her and just pressed her head into it. I went home 10 minutes later with my first kid! I love her to pieces.

Then there is Luna (also called Bear) she is white with grey points and the most BEAUTIFUL blue eyes. She was a different sort of rescue, from a home that had was not a good place for her to be and given to us way too young but after stepping foot into that place I was NOT leaving without her. She is a character and loves going outside on her leash. We get up and go outside together on Saturday mornings to read and eat breakfast together and visit her meemaw, papi. Oh and the irony of calling my cats by other species is not lost on me! :)

And I have 3 Guinea pigs I adore with my whole heart, Cedric (a teddy Guinea pig and the only one I have purchased from a breeder, and actually the way you should do it other than a shelter, odd I know) Willa (a friend from work asked me to watch her until she moved.. I've been watching her for 2 years but she is amazing!) and Berry (1 of my original 2 pigs, we lost her sister this year, but she so far is ok! We drove 2 hours to pick her and her sister up) I am a bit of a pig lover and all their noises and quirks. I did have 5. But this year has taken a couple from me. In the future I want only 1 sex so I don't have to have 2 cages. But we will see! Guinea pigs just tend to fall into my lap! All my fur kids are treated and talked to like they were my actual kids!

I love the sea, being in it, around it, the smell of it, the creatures in it EVERYTHING! I subscribe to 4ocean which sells bracelets made out of recycled plastic bottles and for every bracelet sold they pull a pound of trash out of the ocean. The best Christmas present I have ever gotten!

Favorite color:






*Water bottles



*ANYTHING weird and unique

*I would LOVE to recieve a coin or paper note from your country if not in the US! Doesnt have to be worth a lot any type would BEYOND make my day!



*Guinea Pigs



*Penguins (actually "adopted" one at the Florida aquarium, I have his picture.)

*Jellyfish (have personally owned moon jellyfish, amazing creatures)


*Pretty much any and all animals

*I don't mind dogs but only have cats and Guinea pigs so prefer no dog themed things.

Favorite Books


Anything that is fiction, Non- fiction just ends up Boring me.

*Harry Potter

*A Discovery of Witches trilogy

*Stephen king

*Romance novels occasionally

*Sci-fy adventure


*Pretty much everything.

Favorite Movies


Huge Disney fan, yes I am 27 and will ALWAYS love Disney.

*Alice in Wonderland is my favorite, the cartoon, but sci-fy did a mini series called Alice that is by far the best live action!

*Noises off

*Harry Potter

*I collect movies so I watch a bit of everything.

Favorite Television





*Miraculous lady bug



I know there are more but right now that's all I can think of!

Favorite Food/Drinks






*Pasta (love different shapes and colors!)

*My husband is a celiac so my house is pretty wheat free except a select couple things that have their own spot in the kitchen, I haven't cooked with wheat in 6.5 years.


*Black iced tea(all tea black is just my favorite)

*Hot tea- Earl Greys are my favorite



Due to my surgery I cant really have anything else!

Favorite Crafts









Anything else creative I can get my hands on!


*Mustard, I want to like this so bad and I always try but alas my taste buds want no part of it :(

*Yogurt, same as above :(




*People who abuse animals

*I am really afraid of sudden loud noises like a balloon popping, It causes my anxiety to go through the roof if I am around stuff that could potentially startle me, even the toaster.

*Also I'm not real religious so if you want to sent something religious to me go ahead and send it I won't rate down(unless profile based is the swap) just won't give a heart.

That's pretty much it!

Comment: So sorry for the delay in rating. I was cleaning the storage room and found a box with some magazines and also some swaps I found your post card in there. Thanks for sending it. I agree baby animals are adorable though I'm not too sure about the squirrels. They just kind of look and act like furry rats to me

Comment: So cute!
Comment: Thanks for the lovely PC. I to enjoy scenes like this, at any time of the year. In the winter with snow, in summer's green, with the turning leaves of fall, even in the spring with the misquotes, black flies, and gnats.

I love that you are a cat rescuer - we love cats at our house. My daughter had the same surgery as you a few years ago and I know about the journey you went through and applaud you for all your hard work.

This might be odd, but ever since the "Suprises for everyone - August" swap we were in, whenever I see taco items in stores I've wanted to tell you about it! Lol. Have a good day.
