This Employee Recreated a 1962 Photo of Her Mom with a Coke Bottle

By: |

While in Atlanta for a workshop in 2010, my friend and colleague, Ana Castillo, showed me a black-and-white photo postcard and challenged me to guess who the girl in the photo was.

7 Unique Ways to Celebrate Mom

By: |

While it might seem that Mother’s Day was invented by a clever conglomeration of florists and greeting card companies, the modern-day celebration of motherhood was actually introduced by one woman, Anna Jarvis, in the early-1900s. After the death of her own mother, she fought hard to make Mother's Day a national holiday. It was made official by President Woodrow Wilson in 1914. Since then, the holiday has spread to many other countries around
