Fight Loneliness: Move To Cheverly

“Lisa: Can you watch my kids for an hour this afternoon?” That was the text message I received from my neighbor yesterday mid-morning. Of course I could. It was my turn to help out… This was the same neighbor who treated my boy to a movie on Sunday evening. I was running late to get…

Empty Streets? Not in Cheverly.

Check out what a German journalist wrote about his time living in America. He spent two years in Bethesda and here are his thoughts: What two Years living in America taught me… Empty Streets I liked living in our neighborhood. We had great neighbors and the one’s next door quickly became our friends. It’s often…

I Chose Wisconsin and Now I’m Back :)

For three weeks during this past month I Chose Wisconsin. True. It’s true. And how could I not? The high temps reached the mid 70’s and I got to go fishing everyday. We took my parents boat to different restaurants on the lake for breakfast, lunch and dinner. We toured a 8,000 cow dairy farm….

Why I Choose Cheverly

There is a book in the Bible that is called Proverbs. It’s often called the “wisdom book” and it contains many beautiful truths that have been helpful for my own life. With my constant obsession for homes, I need to remind myself of Proverbs 27:20, “the eyes of man are never satisfied.” I grew up…

Cheverly Love on my 42nd!

So today, on my 42nd year of life, I could not be more thankful for the town of Cheverly. I know, some people might find that strange that I am so crazy about the place in which I live. That’s ok. I don’t think you could understand unless you live here. (on a side note,…

Keep Calm and Hug it Out

What a week. I mean, seriously…. I think we might all need to take a deep breathe and… No seriously. Last Friday I worked at the inauguration. It’s a once in a lifetime opportunity and I took it. I’m glad I did. I got to meet and see a ton of different things that I…

Diverse Cheverly.

So what can you say after last night? I wasn’t going to blog this morning because 1) I’m too tired. I can’t remember the last time I stayed up until 2am in the morning and 2) I almost didn’t have the words. But then I remembered the wonderful time I had touring a distillery with…

48 Hours in Cheverly

Huge thanks to a friend and neighbor, Jennifer B, who wrote this post. Community is one of the best things about living in Cheverly and she describes it well… Although this blog is full of upcoming event announcements and colorful postings about past neighborhood celebrations, I thought it would be fun to give a recap…

Introducing…The Green Team

Let me introduce you to the green ‘Mini Kicks’ team from the Cheverly Boys and Girls Club: We are the green team. Last Saturday we played our second game of the season against  the orange team. We lost. In fact, this was the second game we lost. We still haven’t scored our first goal. That’s…

Processing My Thoughts: Cheverly Pool

A new family moved into town a couple days ago and they happen to be 2 houses down from me. I’m so excited for them. It’s a strange thing to be so excited for strangers that I had never met (before yesterday). I genuinely think they have hit the jackpot. Upon meeting them I asked,…

Finally! Huge shout out to DC’s top realtors for our community. IT’S ABOUT TIME someone labels us at the top 10 up and coming neighborhoods in DC. Honestly I wouldn’t consider us up and coming.
