Beautification Day at Spellman

How many of you are familiar with our local elementary school? It’s so amazing to see that our neighbors came out to help ‘beautify’ the school. With the help of Art Works Now, the group of volunteers made a beautiful sign for all of us to see. (just take a drive on 63rd) This year’s PTA…

Real Estate: My Little Secret

Disclaimer: These pictures are just horrible compared to what this house looks like in person. It is a true gem. Flipped by an amazing contractor, (we have become acquainted) this home is full of beautiful detailed work. Everything inside is new. See the bricks leading up to the front door?

Looking For Affordibility? The Hunt Is Fierce

“The Hunt is Fierce” according to a Washington Post article about real estate in Maryland. The article goes on to explain that people are moving to Prince George’s County from Alexandria to “look for affordability”. Duh. I’m so glad people are finally figuring this out. And the best place to look for affordability, in my…

What in the world is the Cheverly Prom?!

Prom?! Oh lovely. I hated prom. It was not one of my best high school memories, by far. That’s why when I moved to town I flat out ignored the Cheverly Prom news. Who would want to dress up in formals with their friends to go to Cheverly’s gym? Not me. And besides, I didn’t…

7 Homes in 7 Days

Cheverly T- Ball

T-ball. I never played but my husband did and we have made the trek all the way to his small town in Kansas to visit the field. He often talks about throwing the ball with his town friends and even wants to fly back for a reunion game. I get it. Those are cherish memories…

OLD is the new NEW

Don’t laugh at my the headline. It’s true and you’d you know if you watch HGTV’s show with Nicole Curtis: Rehab Addict. If Nicole Curtis were in our area, she would be obsessed with this home on Belleview Ave that’s for sale.  My co-worker and I were just discussing the fact that her new neighbors…

Small Town Parade

Who knew that when I moved from Capitol Hill to a place a few minutes away called Cheverly, MD (on the boarder of DC) I would live in a ‘town’ with a ‘parade’. Don’t only small towns or really large cities have parades? In my experience, the answer is “yes”! And that is why I…
