The Valentine's Day Birthday Mystery

Posted by Katie Paige on February 14, 2017

Happy Valentine's Day!

But more importantly: Happy Valentine's Birthday to the Reed family!

 

When Chris Reed joined Arkatechture two years ago, we were excited to learn that he and his wife share the same birthday - and it happens to be Valentine's Day! Since then, we have been left wondering: How common is a Valentine's Day Birthday?

For our holiday card, we had an awesome family portrait style Christmas photoshoot at the mall (which was definitely entertaining for the onlookers in the food court!). We knew we would have to think of something different, since we've grown our team to 25!
