This Is Us

Cheverly has a way of pulling on your heartstrings. (Kind of like the show “This Is Us” which I just started watching on Sunday) It had been a while since I had made it to the Community Market. I’ve had class, we’ve been out of town…alas, I finally made it on Saturday and was able…

Weekend Fun!

(where we can buy local beer and local micro-greens) Here is the list of who will be featured at tomorrow’s market: Bennys Fruit Market MeatCrafters Calvert Brewing Company New Starts farm Martha’s Jams…

Cheverly Market Wine Tasting and Art Benefit

I so look forward to our Cheverly Market in the summertime. Nothing could be better for a mom with two boys (who need to get out of the house and run off their energy) then walking to Town Hall to grab some fresh fruits and veggies. I believe this is the first year that the…

Weekend Update: Alpacas, Pancakes and Parties!

You know, it seems like there is always something happening in our small little town on the weekends. We are blessed. On Saturday we have our Holiday Market. Sadly, it will be the last market until May. (Ahh- how I can’t wait to walk to the outdoor market and swim in the pool next summer) Not…

Thanksgiving Market 2014

This Thanksgiving Market was just amazing. There were so many neighbors selling beautiful items. I cannot wait to feature all of our local talent on my “Shop Local” posts. Thank you to Cheverly Community Market for a beautiful morning.

Mark Your Calendar and Celebrate the Holidays Cheverly Style!

Ok, let’s get real here. Yesterday I found out someone on DC Urban Mom’s (and Dad’s) posted about Cheverly. They asked, “What’s the deal with Cheverly?” People chimed in, some with positive things to say, some with negative. (schools, county, surrounding areas) As I type, the forums on the DC Urban Mom’s site is down….

Weekend Update

I continue to be amazed by how many activities our town hosts every weekend. My schedule could be completely booked with Cheverly related events and meetings. Being a Christian, I love that my neighbors, of all faiths and backgrounds, have a desire to serve one another. It’s a beautiful thing when you receive an email…

Buy Local!

Buy local, go home, and eat your veggies! That’s what we did today…and somehow our veggies ended up in this Chocolate Beet Bundt Cake. Yum.

Cheverly’s Oktoberfest

Can’t make it to Munich this year?! Try coming out on Saturday to support the St. Ambrose Men’s Club at the 2nd Annual Oktoberfest. The event will be held at Town Hall and is free. Rumor has it that they will be serving brats, hot dogs, and pretzels alongside assorted German beers and the Sam Adams Oktoberfest! Yum. So…

Weekend Update: Cookie Science

Huge thanks to the Cheverly Police, Town of Cheverly, American Legion, Rachel Dabney Rice for face painting, and anyone else I’m forgetting. Last night was amazing–free dinner, getting to talk with neighbors, who could ask for more?! This is exactly why I chose to do this blog. Everyone should want to live in a community…

Weekend Events

Looking for something to do this weekend? Not only do we have our Cheverly Community Market from 8-noon, the Community Forklift is hosting their community block party and health expo. A short 2.8 mile drive from Cheverly, the Community Forklift is known as a “thrift store for house parts” and its been on my to do list…

BIG Events This Weekend

I can’t keep up with all the events we have in this wonderful town. What an amazing community! I took two days off this week from work and spent a few hours at the Cheverly Pool with a book. And if I were around this weekend, I’d hit all of these events: Tonight: Cheverly Parents…
