EB Team Spotlight: Katie at Colorado Mills

Today we’re turning the spotlight onto Katie, the stellar store manager at our location in Lakewood, Colorado. When she’s not hooping, hiking, and generally soaking up the beauty of her Colorado home, Katie can be found keeping our Colorado Mills store running smoothly.

Earthbound Team Spotlight: Katie at Colorado Mills

Q: Describe yourself in ten words or less:
A: Crazy, down-to-earth, colorful, energetic, Harry Potter lovin’ kinda gal.

Q: What do you love about working for Earthbound?
A: Opportunity! Not only do I get the opportunity to work with, meet and share stories with amazing people everyday, but I have the chance to travel to help open new stores. So much fun! Earthbound has also given me the opportunity to transfer to and live in the state I have dreamed about forever. I love Colorado and its majestic mountains!

Q: What’s your favorite thing to do when you’re not at work?
A: Well, here in Denver, we get the best of both worlds: mountains and city! I like to either head downtown to catch dinner or concerts with friends, or head into the mountains to hike with my dog, hula hoop in the woods, hit the hot springs or just take in the beautiful sights.

Q: What song have you been jamming out to lately?
A: I have recently fallen in LOVE with Björk! Thank you to satellite radio at the store. “Crystalline” is such a fun song, I cannot stop jamming to it!

Q: What’s your greatest dream in life?
A: I want to see the world! I love to travel and experience different cultures, food, music and meet people from all over.

Q: You’re stranded on a desert island. Excluding food, water and means of escape, what three items (one being an Earthbound product) would you take?
A: A hula hoop for sure! TONS of entertainment there, and a great way to pass the time! I’ve been an avid hooper for 7 years now. Being stranded on an island would be a great excuse to get to play all day long! I would bring a silk wrap skirt as well. That way I could change up my outfits, you know, to keep island life fresh and exciting! Plus I could make it into a shelter. Lastly, I would bring my little Miniature Pinscher, Lina. I would love the companionship, shes a great hunter to find us food, she can alert me when unwanted critters are around, and well, what’s island life without your best friend?

Happy Holi & St. Patrick’s Day!

Today is a day for celebrating. It’s Saint Patrick’s Day AND it’s the Hindu celebration of Holi!

Holi is a spring festival, celebrating the beginning of the new season. It’s also known as the “festival of colors” or the “festival of love”. Primarily observed in India, Nepal and other regions with large Hindu populations, Holi is a bit of a colorful free-for-all. Chasing each other with colorful powder and colored water, anyone is fair game to be covered in colors!

Saint Patrick’s Day was made an official Christian feast day in the early seventeenth century, honoring Ireland’s patron saint. While still a religious holiday today, the day has also become a celebration of Irish culture and heritage. Parades, festivals, wearing the color green, traditional Irish music, and a fair bit of alcohol consumption all play a part in the celebration of this holiday.

What and how are you celebrating today?
