    "My dad is an amateur photographer and loves capturing nature. (He has taken thousands of pics of butterflies and orchids, but there are only a handful of me as a baby.) So one year, I printed nine of his best photos, bought three Ikea frames that hold three 5 x 7 inch images each and put the pics in the frames. They’re still hanging on a wall in their house more than 10 years later." - Ciara Rickard, production and copy editor

    "A few months ago, I witnessed my dad go on a crazy YouTube binge. He spent hours watching ’90s rock music videos.

Now I just need to explain what Spotify is...." - Liz Guber, style editor
