Cheverly Food Truck Festival

Another reason I Choose Cheverly? My neighbors who volunteer to make our community awesome! Cheverly’s First Food Truck Festival is coming on September 27th. Why? Because a Cheverly resident, Rachel Dabney Rice, thought up the idea and got the entire thing up and running for all of us to enjoy in less than a month…

This weekend’s open house pick is a beauty. You can find it on 3107 Laurel Ave in Cheverly. It’s open on Sunday Aug 31st from 1-4 and boasts of 2110 square feet (which is larger than most typical homes in the neighborhood) and 4 bedrooms, 3 1/2 baths. It has a nice deck on the…

Join Scouting- Cheverly Pack 257

Tomorrow night’s the night- If you have a future Cheverly scout at home, make sure you make the 8-9pm parent information meeting at the Cheverly Legion. Growing up with 2 sisters, I’m new to this whole Boy Scout thing (and of course, I have 2 boys!) but I’m really excited about it. Membership dues are…

Yoga In Cheverly

Meet Kelly Fisher yoga teacher of 10 plus years and owner of Wildflower Yoga. One of the reasons I Choose Cheverly is because I never HAVE to fight DC traffic. There is so much I can do within our community. I can take a 5 minute walk to Cheverly United Methodist Church and will find…

Incredible Neighbors and A Few of My Favorite Things

So we get back from vacation and 4 days later I come down with strep–for the 4th time in 5 months. It doesn’t ever come on the weekdays so I’ve spent weekends at the local urgent care, which brings me to one of my favorite things. How can urgent care be one of my favorite…

Star Wars Movie Night

Here is the message from Rachel Dabney Rice: This Saturday August 23rd is Star Wars Movie Night at the Cheverly Pool!  The fun starts a 6pm with floats, water battles in a pair of inflatable Starfighters and a…

A Few of My Favorite Things: Dark Chocolate

I hesitate sharing my favorite ‘go to’ chocolate online like this because if Aldi ever ran out of it, I don’t know what I’d do. I lived in Europe for 7 years so I know chocolate. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not a chocolate connoisseur but I do know what good chocolate tastes like–and it’s…

Living in Cheverly Will Increase Your Life by 15 Years!

So as I explained in my last post, I’m still enjoying an extended vacation. It’s been amazing in so many ways. My entire family is relaxed. Last night I had a email from my next door neighbor. The new chair I ordered came early and was sitting outside my house in a huge box. She…

Going, going…

And it’s gone- or sale pending, at least. This beauty, 6414 Forest Ave, just came on the market at 325K. I drove by a couple days ago and I’m glad to see someone was smart enough to put in an offer. And btw, the house I listed a week or so ago for 270 sold…

A Few Of My Favorite Things: Community Forklift

I can’t believe I’ve lived in Cheverly for 9 years now and have only recently discovered Community Forklift! First of all, I would’ve saved a ton of money, and second of all, I would’ve had some really unique and fun fixtures/pieces in my house. Community Forklift has been described as a thrift store for home goods….

It Takes a Village

24 hours in the life of a working mother in Cheverly: Get home by 4:00pm. Get kids ready to go to a neighbor’s house that lives 4 houses down and across the street. Bike over. Kids play. Moms talk. I run out with one of my two boys to take pictures for a Meet Your…
