Cheverly Day 2018!

Cheverly East vs West! This is one of the most fun days of the year. I’m talking about Cheverly Day…and if you are new to town, you must stick around on May 19th for all the activities. On Cheverly Day every year the men (and women are invited too…but I didn’t see any women playing…

Cheverly Day: Musings on Community

Children are not designed, by nature, to attach just to the mother, or just to the mother and father. They are, for good biological reasons, designed to form multiple attachments, to many of the people in a community.  It is important to recognize here that the private nuclear family, living in a house apart from…

All You Need to Know: Cheverly Day

I spent the first few years of living here as a single person not attending Cheverly Day. Why? Because I had no idea what it was… Now I know more about Cheverly and so look forward to the weekend. I even cancelled a NYC trip this weekend so I could be here for it!  Thankfully…

Wednesday Musings and Hot Links

I don’t want to keep apologizing for being MIA on this blog, but I need to again. Life is so full right now with lots of wonderful activities, especially in Cheverly and the blog has taken a back seat. I’m ok with that, I just felt the need to explain. There is so much to…

Happy 85th Birthday Cheverly

Seriously, what a great weekend. Even though we didn’t have a parade and even though we had to go with our Plan B, I really enjoyed seeing my friends and celebrating our neighborhood together. Here’s a text from one of my closest: “______ and I were joking tonight about how love of Cheverly is getting out…

Plan B

No parade. No softball game. Thank you weather! I really don’t want to be a Debbie downer here, but alas, I must.  I’m just bummed that the weather will not cooperate for Cheverly Day. Nevertheless, we have a plan B and the Prom is still taking place tonight (FUN) alongside a full list of activities for…

Rain Rain Go Away…Come Again On Another Saturday!

Do you see what I see? Yes! That is the beginning of a for sale sign going up. I saw it this morning on my walk. So friends, the highly anticipated (2 year reno) house on Cheverly Ave is going up on market soon. Now to some troubling news… There is 100% chance of rain…

Cheverly Day Blog

Cheverly Day is coming up on May 21st. I’m praying it does not rain. We need to get rid of this nasty weather!! Did you know that Cheverly Day has a blog? I took part in an interview that was released today about my blog so make sure you check it out. If you are…

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…

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…

Cheverly Day 2015!

Fireworks, Entertainment, Games, Softball, Basketball, Beer and Yummy Food—you will find all of this and more at Cheverly Day 2015! Did you know that Cheverly Day has been taking place annually since 1966? 1966 was the first Cheverly Day parade and in 1967 Cheverly Day was celebrated with fireworks on July 4th. I’m ashamed to…
