Happy Sunday Mother’s Day (or Happy Monday, depending on when you read this)! To all the mothers out there, may you have a lovely day and know how much we all love our mothers and mother-figures. Here are a few reads from around the internet talking about history, architecture, design and culture:
- Did you know that Mothers’ Day did not begin as the “thank you” holiday we know it as today. It started with Ann Reese Jarvis before the Civil War as a way to teach mothers how to care for their children – “Mothers’ Day Work Clubs”. Mothers Day became a national holiday in 1914, and then the greeting card industry took it and ran!
- The news from Burlington, VT: A 14 story building is proposed as a design concept for redevelopment of the mall. 14 stories in a low-rise city. What do you think?
- Speaking of: some of California’s midcentury architecture. How can you not love it?
- Modern day yuppies. What do you think?
How was your weekend? Favorite reads? Favorite activities? Have a great week!
