Want To Bike All the Way to DC (on paved trails?) I Do!

Thank you to Cheverly resident Aimee Olivio who knows local politics and who prepared this letter for us all. I started biking this summer and really would love to get a paved trail from our neighborhood to connect with the NE branch trail that goes to DC. Currently I have a bike rack and drive…

Safe Summer Local Adventures

Hello friends and neighbors. Yes- it has been a while. I’ve been burned out at blogging- can’t sugar coat it. There is too much going on in the world that is consuming my brain and time. I have to continue to take this pandemic ONE DAY AT A TIME. I’m not a homebody and I…

Bike Riding! May 19: Covid Journal Week 10

Week 10. I have no words. Some days I’m great–other days I feel down. I have missed the Cheverly events and my Cheverly friends dearly. Last weekend was beautiful and it was supposed to be Cheverly Day. Next year is a parade year and hopefully by then we can all celebrate our community together. My…

Cheverly Quarantined Kids Rock! Lego Contest

Hello friends! Are these not amazing? We have the Cheverly Pool, Cheverly Town Park Baseball, Cheese Park, Town Hall, Legion Park, the Pepsi Plant, 7-11 Slurpee’s, and the Community Market! I will showcase each of these on my Facebook page. The two judges are my husband (who has no idea who has submitted these) and…

Lego Cheverly Creation Contest

Hello readers! If you have children and you are anything like me, I’m starting to go nuts. I made a Target run the other day to buy a lego set for my boys (to keep them busy) but they are sooo expensive that I just couldn’t pull the trigger. Instead I opted for some books,…

Tuesday April 14: COVID Journal Week 5

Week 5 already? Could that be true? Cheverly neighbors- You all have brought so much joy to me. It is beautiful to see and hear about people coming together to serve and love others during these difficult days. Even though I’m an extrovert, I’ve felt very introverted lately. Maybe it is the forced seclusion? I…

Wednesday April 1: COVID Journal week3

I just got done with a ‘prayer meeting’ online with friends who live in Cheverly. We prayed for the suffering taking place in our community and for the Lord to spare our neighborhood of death. What is happening now is truly evil- the fear, anxiety, death, sickness, brokenness. All of it. We all hate it…

Monday March 30: COVID Journal week 2; MD on lockdown

Well here we go neighbors! This lockdown just got real. Honestly my family has been locked down for a couple weeks now but now it is mandatory for everyone. And it should be! I *think* I’m okay right now but that seems to change hourly. Life seems like a dream— a dream that I’m unable…

Serving Cheverly Town Staff

Hello all! What a beautiful, beautiful day. I saw so many people out walking! Cheverly is so beautiful in spring and I’m grateful that the quarantine is happening now and not in winter. We ate outside as a family and so did our neighbors. It actually felt somewhat like a party. I wanted to share…

Saturday March 28th COVID Journal

Hi Cheverly! I have been an avid journal writer since I was 15 years old. I have a number of my old journals in my library at home and look at them every now and again. They are hands off for everyone else and that was how it has been for my entire life with…

COVID Journal Guest Post: Keeping Up Our Collective Spirits

Keeping Up Our Collective Spirits by Aimee Olivo Oh my goodness, this is so hard. I don’t need to go into how and why it is hard because it’s hard for everyone. It’s times like these that I’m even more grateful to live in Cheverly. Today I thought I’d highlight some of the many ways…

Wednesday March 18, COVID Journal Day 4: Let Your Kids Live

Is anybody else out there asking, “What day is it today?” I honestly cannot keep my days straight because COVID has me totally off schedule. My family also finds ourselves asking, “Do you think I have the coronavirus?!!!” Please tell me some of you can relate! My husband sent me this tweet today: Of course…
