PG County Restaurant Week

We almost did it. We almost went the entire winter (yes, the entire winter) without one virus. I can’t even remember the last time my boys had a cold. I want to believe that God had mercy on my family because of the rough 2013/14 winter when we came down with not one, not two,…

My Cheverly App

Friends. I’m so excited to share this news with you. Do you have the My Cheverly App on your phone? If not, why not? It’s free. Download it today. Created by a good friend of mine, Joel Thomas, this app features my blog (thank you Joel) where you can post pictures of our town, neighborhood…

Cheverly Day 2015

So I’ve lived in Cheverly for almost 10 years now and I’m ashamed to say that I’ve only attended Cheverly Day a handful of times. I can’t honestly say why as I lived only a couple blocks away from the festivities. I think I just didn’t know too much about it, and as a single…

Child Care and Why I Choose Cheverly

Hello faithful readers out there! My random thoughts for this evening: I have some moments with the blog where I struggle because I have a huge desire to be creative-and not only that, there are so many things going on here in Cheverly that often I find myself overwhelmed with keeping up. I know, a great problem…

Winter 2015

Don’t we live in such a beautiful town? I took these on my walk to the Metro this morning-

Back to Reality

It was warm. It was lovely. It was peaceful. Everyone should go to the Florida coast once in the winter. (at least) I unplugged, ate some fish at restaurants by the water, walked 5th Ave South in Naples, ate Gelato, put on my bathing suit daily, went to the beach daily, oh yes- and picked…

Time For A Vacation

(my oldest at our favorite beach) I *think* I just finished packing for a vacation. I’m sure I’ll discover right before we head out the door that I’m missing something, but for the time being I plan to rest. Rest is something we don’t do much of in DC. I find that most of us…

So Much To Do!

Ok, it’s winter and I’m just so tired of the cold. Schools have been closed for less than an inch of snow and I’m still waiting for the big storm. In my opinion, if the weather is cold, we should have snow. I hibernate in the winter, rarely coming out to see any of my…

Plans Friday Night?

Friends, if you don’t have plans this Friday night, you should be at this local event. Only $20 per person and you can get dressed up and support a great cause. Natalie Pappas told me the interesting background of the Sweetheart Charity Ball and I wanted to make sure you all heard it too. I don’t know…

Cheverly Schools: Gladys Noon Spellman Elementary

Hello friends. As promised, I wanted to feature our local schools so that parents can hear from other parents in our community. Thank you to a friend of mine, Aimee Olivio who spent time writing up something about our local school, Gladys Noon Spellman Elementary- located right in Cheverly. Spellman is a great public school…
