Midwest Music Montage
Story by Jon Bennett
Photography by M. Schleif Photography
Dr. Mary Aaland came to Fargo a little over 10 years ago on the search for the perfect place to call home. After contemplating different style homes, as well as downtown condos, she chose the historic Hector home on north Broadway. This stately home was built in 1890 and has been featured three times on HGTV's "House Hunters." Dr. Aaland chose this home because it felt right, and she had a grand vision for it. It was not only a wonderful place to call home, to restore and to love, but a place to entertain.
Dreams Do Come True
What's A Party Without Food!
After all, we live in the Midwest so who can resist homemade sloppy joes, pasta salad and root beer floats? Over the life of this beautiful home, there was a pool that included a pool house with a covered seating area nestled in the gardens. Although the pool is long gone, the pool house remains, which was the perfect place to serve root beer floats and ice cream cones after the recital.
Music At Its Finest
Moorhead music teacher Dan Christianson has a passion for music and teaching kids at a young age, while helping them grow and become their best. Parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles filled the yard to support the young musicians as they took the stage along with Christianson, who teaches in a hands-on fashion. Christianson accompanied many students on the piano or drums to make each young artist's music pop, filling the families' faces with smiles as they watched the progress each child has made. As the crowd enjoyed the recital, the students' faces filled with joy as they were able to present their talents for all to appreciate.

Midwest Nest loves the culture from the upper midwest, and we are excited to share stories from around the area.
