We Choose Cheverly: Meet Our Leaders: Dave and Casey Kneipp

From our “We Choose Cheverly” writer Chase O’Brien: As a mother of three small boys, there are many things that I appreciate about living in Cheverly. Something that ranks very high on my list is Halloween. October is the only time of the year when my boys WANT to walk to school EVERY single day….

Cheverly Dolphins and Random Thoughts from the Cheverly Pool

I felt a little blue yesterday. Not depressed, but just feeling a bit low. I could guess at the many reasons, but I’ll spare you the details. After arriving home from work I told the kids, “Hey! Let’s head out to the pool” and that’s just what we did. Amazing how the secluded area around…

Cheverly: An Oasis in the Midst of a Big City

Check out this map from Crime Reports. Colorful isn’t it? These are the latest crime stats for our part of the district. And check out Cheverly to the right. Oh yes, Cheverly–you can see the name of our town listed because there are very few dots. The light blue ones are theft from vehicles, the dark…

Curb Appeal

Every time I drive by the house above in Cheverly I always think, “wow- that house has curb appeal!” And it truly does. What you cannot see from this photo is a push lawnmower in front with flowers and a swing. Compliment that with a well manicured lawn, a pot of flowers by the blue painted front door plus…

Bidding Wars?!

Did anyone else get the real estate flyer in your mail box yesterday? I’m talking about the one that said that our market is going strong and that this house had 11 (yes 11!) bids on it, selling 35K more than the listed price? Friends, that is great news for our real estate market. Cheverly…

Real Estate: Going, Going, Gone!

And a huge thank you to Chase O’Brien for writing yesterday’s post. We had a positive response and I’m looking forward to more posts by…

Friday Night Flicks: Stay Local!

For such a small and quiet town, we sure do have a lot going on ALL THE TIME! This Friday night and next we have two movies hitting the stage in The Chev. On Friday (June 19th) our local elementary school PTA is showing an outdoor movie as a way to raise funds for the…

I Was A Loner Until…VBS!

Parents, parents, parents! Yes, I’m screaming! All of you should consider sending your children to VBS at Cheverly United Methodist Church this year. I cannot say enough GREAT things about their program, the reasonable price, the memories my child has made, the teachers, the program and arts and crafts. We love CUMC’s VBS! So when…

“We Choose” Wednesdays!

After a year of blogging and a steady stream of readers, part time photography business on the side, full time job, a husband, two little boys and a house to take care of just doesn’t leave me with tons of room for creativity with this blog. That is why I’ve decided to enlist a few…

Loving My CSA!

CSA. What’s that? I’m glad you asked. Here is a great, although somewhat lengthy description of it: You are a conscious consumer, concerned about the health of your family and the wellbeing of the Earth. You buy organic produce, but the cost –usually 50% higher than conventional produce– is killing your budget. What can you…
