New Home On The Market!

  From what I can see, we should all be encouraged by the real estate market in town. Homes are selling fast and there is little on the market. I have had several people contact me about homes in Cheverly. Why? Check out the home above. It was just listed 4 days ago. It’s so…

Meet Your Neighbors: Jenifer, Sarah, Dominic and Ivan

This past weekend I was able to spend some time with Jenifer and Sarah and their two handsome boys. I’ve seen them at the park but this was my first opportunity to get to know them and hear their stories. Having just got back last month from a two week vacation in Wisconsin, it was…

Diversity With Real Community

I have a great, patient husband who sometimes wonders why I spend so much time on this blog 🙂 But over the weekend as we were walking to the new park we had a great talk about our community. I asked Tim to write down some of his thoughts and here is what he came…

Great News for Cheverly Real Estate!

Great news for Cheverly real estate! All three of the homes above just sold last month and all of them had price escalations. The cape cod with the red door was listed for 325K and was sold for 342K (still a great deal!). The house with the porch in front on Forest Rd was listed…

Weekend Update: Cookie Science

Huge thanks to the Cheverly Police, Town of Cheverly, American Legion, Rachel Dabney Rice for face painting, and anyone else I’m forgetting. Last night was amazing–free dinner, getting to talk with neighbors, who could ask for more?! This is exactly why I chose to do this blog. Everyone should want to live in a community…

South Mountain Creamery

Did you know that you can order eggs, milk, cheese, butter, meat etc from South Mountain Creamery which is an “on-site dairy processing plant that…

Public Safety Day and Other Random Thoughts

I spent most of Sunday morning with my boys at Cheese Park. And why Cheese Park you ask? I started to drive my boys to the ‘new’ or ‘elevator’ or ‘ castle’ park when they said, “No mommy, we want to go to Cheese Park!” What?! The old park?! I think they were feeling a…

Bike to DC, Hyattsville and beyond?!

Check out the yellow star- that’s Cheverly Ave, now look to the left and see all the green lines? Those are bike trails that need to be connected! Wouldn’t it be amazing to have the opportunity to bike into DC, from Cheverly, using the Anacostia River Trail. Now I have no idea where we are in…

Hello Cheverly! Meet your neighbors, Kassie and Rhiannon. I’m so excited to share this post with you because Kassie is one of our neighbors who grew up in Cheverly. I love hearing stories of people who grew up here and now are raising their own children in the same community. She mentions in her post…

A Few of My Favorite Things: Aldi

If this weekend was as hard for you as it was for me (and to prove it, I googled “cruises from Baltimore”), then take a 15 minute excursion to our local Aldi for a few of my favorite things. After a long Monday at work I really needed one of the snickerdoodle soft baked cookies….
