Backyard Bible Club

Check out some of Cheverly’s youngest. If I’ve learned anything since having kids its that new parents often explore faith questions. Thankfully Cheverly has two churches, The Cheverly United Methodist Church and St. Ambrose Catholic Church. Cheverly United Methodist hosts a VBS every year that I love! And now there is even a Backyard Bible…

Shop Local: Moctec Mexican

Calling all foodies! I was at a party over the weekend with some Cheverly friends and had the most amazing corn tortillas. Turns out that they were homemade. The dough was purchased by a place called Moctec which is only 2 miles away. They have lots of amazing items including tortilla chips which I cannot…

The Awesome Woodworth Trail

I’d seen the signs. I’d heard a little bit about it, but I have to admit that I had no idea Cheverly had a ‘real’ walking nature trail. It’s sad actually. I spent 7 years of my life living in a small Austrian village hiking from one area to another in the Alps. I’ve desperately…

Ivy City: Gravitas

Hold onto your hats…I have some great news for you! Ivy City is going to rock. It already does in many ways but this new area will really be great for Cheverly residents. Only a couple miles away on New York Ave, there are some new shops popping up all the time. Today I found…

Helping Each Other

Here’s the deal folks. Cheverly residents help one another out. I have seen this time and time again. It functions the way that I’ve been told churches should function. There are meal deliveries for new moms, the Cheverly Village which helps to meet the needs of our older residents, special flower/plant deliveries from the Cheverly…

Let’s Talk About: Cheverly Pool

I swear I could talk about this topic every day. It sounds crazy and maybe I am, but I definitely cherish my relaxation time—which is hard to come by when you live inside the Beltway. When I think of relaxation my mind goes to some tropical island or more specifically, Sanibel Island in Florida. I…

Cheverly Commute

With all this talk about the Metro shutdown, I thought I would spend some time this morning talking about my morning commute. Cheverly residents already know this information, but for those of you unfamiliar with Cheverly, this post is for you. Cheverly has an amazing commute. It’s really wonderful for me because I work at…

Peace Vigil

This morning I saw this post on my Facebook feed. I just so happened to be walking on our Town Park track last night when I saw people piled into the entrance of our Community Center. I wondered what in the world was happening on a Wednesday night to bring so many people out? I…

Ichoosecheverly Chooses Aldi

Today we have a guest post by my friend who lives in Cheverly. She is a mom with three active kids and spends most afternoons and evenings at the pool. Everyone should know by now that Aldi is one of my favorite stores around. Here are some Aldi products I didn’t even know about! Thank…

Free (Mostly) Summer Events

Oh friends and neighbors of Cheverly: I feel a bit overwhelmed thinking about all of the free activities our area provides during the summer. Why? I want to go to all of them and almost all are free! (huge bonus) The list is truly endless and we live so close to so many areas that…

Real Estate: Home on Crestlawn

This house is on the market. Don’t you love the stone exterior? I’m crazy for these type of Cape Cods. Only problem is that the realtor didn’t show us inside photos. That could mean its a bit of work… and look at the overgrown bushes! Does it scare me? Nope. Get a landscaping company or…

Our Triangle Community

Triangle Communities (our map kind of looks like a triangle?!) This is what I’ve been trying to describe to my friends…and I’ve finally put a name to it! Triangle Communities. “The smaller the triangle, the happier the human, as long as there is social interaction to be had.” “In many American cities, you can spend…
