On Friday the 13th last March, we celebrated my birthday in the conference room. It was the last normal day in the office, as our entire team began working from home that Monday. It was tough, as my extroverted self loves being with others, brainstorming ideas and telling stories. I’m not the only one who remembers exactly where she was when the quarantine began, as Andria Frankfort shares in Back Porch this month.
