2023 | Week 36

52 Hikes | 52 Homes

“Expect the unexpected.”

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...


Before I set out on my weekly adventures, I always do research about where I would like to go, which oftentimes will include photos. If you have been to Oyster Dome, or if you have seen pictures, you would know that the views of the Puget Sound from the summit are breathtaking. So, this week, I set out to explore this trail and was blown away when I got to the top! Although the weather in the forecast was clear, the clouds completely covered the water view - which was beautiful, but so unexpected!! If you are near Bellingham, and want to hike, I highly recommend checking out this trail!

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.

This week, I enjoyed a delicious vegan blueberry muffin and an americano from Zoka Coffee in Kirkland. Zoka opened its first location in Seattle, in 1997, with the hope of positively impacting our PNW community. With their truly fresh roasted coffee, vegan options, talented baristas, and a welcoming atmosphere - this place is such a vibe. They have since grown to four cafes, and believe it or not, their coffee is actually roasted locally in Bellingham! They have won numerous awards, take pride in what they do, and are known for treating their customers with something special every single visit.
