At Skype’s headquarters in Palo Alto, California, the cushions are bright and the lounges are….well, everywhere. Their philosophy is to keep the staff in “Agile Thinking” mode, where your environment effects (or in this case, enhances) thought process. The guys at Blitz Architecture + Design set up a number of  stations that provide multiple avenues for interactions, mentally stimulating each other through play, rest, color. They take the drudgery out of the office and replace it with fuzbol, faux grass rugs and rock cushions, electric color pallet throughout. A comforting kitchen space with room to congregate takes center stage just like every other heart of the home. It’s more than your average work experience.It brings the best out, encourages a joyful team, inspires creative juices. Skype has taken care of its people so they can serve you best. They win for positive work space, positively purposeful.

Allison Parker is a proud stay at home mom maintaining a full schedule kissing boo boos and passing out hugs just because. Her days many times are spent between the garden and the kitchen. From a journey of learning whole food eating habits, she's taken on the challenges of baking bread, muffins and cakes from scratch and filling the cellar shelves with scores of her own canned goods each year. Writing is one of those things she does because its part of who she is. That and it's a nice break from the never ending work that comes with raising a family.
