Halloween Photos

I swear these pictures crack me up. My life seems like a train wreck now a days and I can never seem to get it together by Halloween. For example, this morning I had a talk with my boys, “what do you want to be for Halloween?!” I’ve heard different responses every day and I’ve…

5th Annual Turkey Trot

Ahhh….The Turkey Trot. One of the many Cheverly events that someone in our neighborhood thought up and then worked to see it happen! Run by volunteers, this is a fun race (run or walk) for you and your friends in Cheverly on the day of Thanksgiving. I have to admit that I’ve only been in…

Halloween Cheverly Style!

I seriously love our little town during Halloween. Why? Our Halloween Parade is the absolute best. I think I get as excited or even more excited than my boys about it! The Cheverly police shut down a couple streets (Parkway and Forest) as kids run from Cheese Park to the Community Center in their outfits….

Dear Capitol Hill Friends:

Dear Capitol Hill friends: (who want to move) This morning as I was exercising at my local Planet Fitness I happened to catch a glimpse of a news story stating that “because of the crime (specifically the new and frequent robberies) Capitol Hill residents are on edge and some are even putting their homes on…

Cheverly West: Washington’s Next Great Transit Oriented Community

I hope you all were able to make it to the Open House on Kilmer Street. I absolutely loved the architectural style/details of this home. (see picture above)  More important was the huge space our town gained by buying the property. Whatever happens to the land and this house, I’m sure it will make a nice addition to…

Lobbying for Cheverly

Last night was a very exciting evening for me. Even though I felt like a fish out of water at the Cheverly Planning Board meeting, the members were patient and kind and maybe even happy that someone new was there?! It’s only taken me 10 years of living in this town to get to a…

Fall Fun!

Wasn’t it an incredibly beautiful fall weekend? Felt a little bit more like spring, but I wasn’t complaining. We traveled a couple hours out to my parent’s home in West Virginia and went to our favorite orchard, Marker Miller. They had cow trains, hay rides, apple picking etc. I bought a huge box of apples…

Spend The Weekend At Home

Spend the weekend at home. I just wanted to remind everyone that there are some great activities happening this weekend in our cool little town.  On Friday night, make plans to head down to the Legion for a chicken dinner. (cost is 5.50 for the meal)  The Cheverly Community Market will be open again on Saturday morning…
