2023 | Week 22

52 Hikes | 52 Homes

“Don't judge each day by the harvest you reap but by the seeds that you plant.”

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...


Hiking to Lake 22 in the spring is truly an enchanting experience and it just so happened to be week 22 as well! I realized this while hiking through the vibrant green forest on my adventure this week and thought it was hilarious - I can't believe I didn't plan this honestly. It was meant to be and it was absolutely beautiful! The fresh flowers lined the trail and I loved looking at the cute little curly ferns!! The sound of rushing water accompanied me along the path, as numerous small creeks and waterfalls are alongside the trail. And the lake is magical. It was almost completely melted and the reflections from the surrounding mountains on the surface were truly a sight to see. Lake 22 is located off of the Mountain Loop Highway and is a wonderful place to explore!

This week I toured several homes ranging from Snoqualmie Pass to Edmonds! One of my Compass coworkers has this amazing cabin listed so I decided to go check it out! If you are looking for a stylish mountain retreat that combines stunning views, superior craftsmanship, & unbeatable location, look no further than this custom-built 3-story chalet in Alpental. This chalet boasts 3 bedrooms, bathrooms on each floor, heated floors (1st & 2nd level), solid hemlock doors & trim, and exposed beams. A spacious kitchen with a walk-in pantry opens to the living room with a soaring wall of windows capturing the Cascade peaks. You will love the two heated garages, front deck to enjoy mountain views & covered hot tub perfect for relaxing after a long day on the slopes or hiking. This home is close to I-90 and offers all that mountain life has to offer. If you are interested in checking it out, just let me know and I will be happy to schedule a showing appointment!

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.

River Trail Roasters is a cute little café located in Redmond and is one of my favorite places to enjoy delicious food and beverages. This vibrant coffee shop is just steps away from the Sammamish River Trail and is known for its commitment to inclusivity and providing diverse culinary options. Not only do they offer an array of specialty coffees, but they also go the extra mile to cater to vegans. Their menu boasts mouthwatering selections, ranging from plant-based pastries like my favorite, the Vegan Reese's Bar, to innovative dairy-free coffee creations. If you are looking for an amazing space with a cozy ambiance and great staff, this is it! Check it out!
