By: Julia Kilberg
Here at MOSS we love giving back to our local community and that is never more true than now, in the leadup to the holiday season. This fall, our team coordinated a donation of a mud kitchen to The Country Day School in McLean. A mud kitchen is an outdoor structure made from wood, pallets, and a sink, that helps kids explore the many textures of nature through playing with dirt, water, leaves, bark, and anything else they find outside.

We all know that kids like to get dirty. There’s nothing more guaranteed than grass stains on a toddler's brand new, clean pants. I’ve come to embrace it.

To accommodate this, Moss has seen an increased focus on designing home office spaces. So, if you are limited by space, how can you make the most of what you have and not feel like you’re working in a broom closet?

August 14, 2017
By: Julia Kilberg
Back-to-school season always conjures up images of opening a clean notebook and taking out sharp pencils and bright crayons on that first day of school. There was something exciting about that new beginning and fresh start to the year that I got every September. To some in our area, however, there can be more angst than excitement as the ever-growing school supply list means an added expense to already financially strapped families.
