FARGO — Nearly five years ago I found out I was expecting my son, and I was a little nervous. After growing up with two sisters, I assumed I was destined to have daughters. I remember telling someone shortly after that 20-week ultrasound that I had no idea how to even play with a boy — all I knew was Barbies and baby dolls. I quickly learned that boys are a ton of fun, and I have loved playing dinosaurs, trucks and superheroes with my son.
FARGO — Standing in the bright, spacious kitchen of Seth and Nicole Holden's north Fargo home, it's hard not to admire the gleaming quartz countertops, rich hardwood floors and the luminous white subway tile backsplash. It's also hard to imagine the fact that two years ago, that kitchen didn't exist.
FARGO — Last month, Pantone Color Institute announced "Ultra Violet" as the Color of 2018. It's "a dramatically provocative and thoughtful" shade, according to the color experts, and a far cry from the light and fresh "Greenery" of 2017. To determine the annual Color of the Year (which the organization has done for 19 years now), Pantone analyzes design trends as well as other less well-defined concepts such as the national mood.
FARGO — The holiday season is an interesting time that involves many fun activities: baking goodies, enjoying special events, buying and wrapping gifts for friends and family, receiving product pitches for some obscure items... Wait, what? Yep, you read that correctly. The holiday season is prime time for public relations firms to pitch editors their products, hoping those items will land on various lists about hot gift ideas for the hard-to-buy-for family member or friend.
Now that Christmas is over, parents are breathing a sign of relief and looking forward to getting back to a normal routine. Except that won't happen until kids go back to school after the holiday break. For those families whose children are home, here are a few easy activities to keep them busy during the time off from school when they inevitably tire of their new toys.
FARGO — "The stockings were hung by the chimney with care..." Thanks to Clement Moore, those words and that image is seared into everyone's mind.
FARGO — Every holiday season, homeowners with dwellings of every size pull out their boxes, bins and bags of decorations to festoon their spaces with the merry signs of the season. Stashed among the many items purchased at end-of-the-season sales and unique boutiques are holiday keepsakes that have stood the test of time and mean just a little more to the person displaying the item than most of the store-bought items.
Becoming a mother is one of the most exciting – and terrifying – times in a woman’s life. The experience is different for every woman and can involve an excruciatingly long list of emotions, ranging from euphoria to anxiety and everything in between.
FARGO — With Thanksgiving passed, the holiday season is fully underway. If you haven't received one already, your mailbox will no doubt start filling up with a stream of holiday cards from family and friends. But how soon is "too soon" to send those greetings? Do you have to send something to everyone you've ever been friends with? What about electronic greetings — are they tacky or just incredibly cost effective and green?
MOORHEAD, Minn. — While the retail world appears to already be counting down the days to Christmas, the liturgical season of preparing for the birth of Jesus Christ — known as Advent — has yet to begin. Advent comes from the Latin word 'adventus' which means 'coming,' and begins the fourth Sunday before Dec. 24. Among the many traditions associated with the season of Advent, many families embrace the Advent calendar as a tool to help build anticipation for Christmas Eve.
