2023 | Week 15

52 Hikes | 52 Homes

“If you truly love nature,

you will find beauty everywhere.”

This is WEEK at a GLANCE - 52 weeks of my PNW adventures!

Join me as I journey through life on a mission to make a difference, one step at a time, one week at a time. How was your week? Here's a glance at mine...


This week, my mom and I went to go visit our family for Easter on the East Coast. We had a wonderful time making memories and one of my favorites was the hike we went on to Lake Grubb. The weather was amazing and the trail looped around the cutest little clear lake! The reflections were beautiful and my niece and nephew took turns leading the way! So. Cute. I am forever grateful for these special moments with my amazing family.

Although I am able to work remotely, there's nothing like having your boots on the ground. While I was away, I was able to schedule a lot of appointments with my vendors for my upcoming listing and was able to meet with them according to plan upon my return.

First, I met with the staging company to do a walk-through of the property and that was immediately followed by the cleaning appointment to have the property deep cleaned. The next day, I picked up the signpost, and loaded it in my SUV - along with my listing toolbox. I spent the rest of the day researching more about the property and preparing the paperwork for the listing. The following morning, I went back to Cle Elum to meet with the staging crew and worked on a few projects with the owner while the staging was taking place. Thank goodness the drive over the pass is gorgeous because the next day I drove over to meet the photographer/videographer! We captured content for the listing and I am really excited to see it all come together. There are a lot of steps that go into getting your home ready to sell and I am happy to be able to help my clients throughout this process. Looking forward to putting this amazing property on the market - It's truly incredible!

The 52 Difference.

My goal each year is to transform the lives of 52 homeowners as I guide them through their home buying or selling experience. 

For every home sold, I donate $52 to Washington Trails Association in support of our aligned mission to protect the place we call home, the Pacific Northwest.


52 Flavors.

Have you been to Molly Moon's? This local ice cream shop is on a mission to make the world better, one scoop at a time. Their team works hard to create deliciousness by partnering with local farmers and producers — and coffee roasters — to turn the best, freshest, most creative local flavors into truly outstanding ice cream. They even have vegan options! This time I tried their seasonal vegan blueberry pie topped with organic vegan sprinkles. It was so good!! And I love that Molly Moon's sources 90% of their ingredients from the Pacific Northwest and has 9 locations within Washington State!
