2022 | Week 24

52 Hikes | 52 Homes

"It's about the journey... and the destination."

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

Powered by passion and inspired by the Northwest, join me as I journey through life as an entrepreneur 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...



Have you been to Franklin Falls? If you haven't hiked here yet, chances are you have driven over it. Believe it or not, this raging waterfall is located right under I-90; however, from the highway, you wouldn't even know it's there! This trail is very popular as it is accessible year-round and changes depending on the season. One thing I love about visiting Franklin Falls is the path to get there. The trail follows Denny creek as it snakes through the wilderness making for an incredible setting. So incredible that there are several small cabins that were built right by the river - how fun! I was blown away by the views from the trail and can only imagine how surreal it would be to wake up to this! And although it was pouring down rain while I was here, it was still beautiful, and I was reminded that happiness can be found in the journey & the destination, rain or shine!

Every third Thursday, I teach THIRSTY THURSDAY - a real estate class designed to educate and empower those looking to buy, sell or invest in the Northwest. This week, we discussed current market trends, rates, and several loan options that are available today.

As interest rates continue to rise, now is the time to 'lock and shop', a program we discussed on Thursday where buyers can lock in their rate now while they shop for their next home. If you are interested in attending my next class or would like to learn more about how to win in today's market, check out my Elevated Buyers Guide, then call me!

The 52 Difference.

Are you keeping your goals TOP of MIND?

THE.HEMP.HIKER was designed with accountability in mind - a TOP of MIND reminder to make every week, your week. 

In efforts to help you summit your goals, I created an eco-friendly hat, featuring an organic hemp body that is from this earth, for this earth as 1% of proceeds are donated to Washington Trails. [52 cents]

52 hats. 52 weeks to make it happen. 

What will you do with your 52?

"Summit your goals, one week at a time."


Support Local.


"My goals are:

  • Surprise my mom for her 60th Birthday
  • I’m traveling to Mexico this fall, I want to work on my Spanish + plan some fun day trips 
  • Try a NEW activity at least once each month; A class, concert, rollerskating, etc."

Thank you SO MUCH for sharing your goals, Ruby - These are great!! I am excited to see you summit your goals... while having fun and surprising your mom!
