2023 | Week 52

52 Hikes | 52 Homes

“In the adventure of life, dedication

is the compass that points to success.”

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, I completed my annual goal to summit 52 hikes, and had the best time on my adventure to Heather Lake with my mom! I made this commitment, rain or shine, and this week it poured. It was raining so hard that the path looked like a river in some places! And the forest was super dense with fog. When we got to the lake, the weather cleared and we enjoyed the breathtaking views. It was so beautiful - the mountain tops were covered in clouds and the lake was partly frozen. This was my 3rd year hiking every week in the PNW and I can’t wait to do it again next year!




Nestled in the coveted Moss Bay neighborhood, this refined community welcomes you home to a world of pure luxury.

The community boasts intelligent design with custom elements, exquisite finishes, and thoughtfully crafted floor plans, setting it apart as a truly exceptional place to call home. Revel in the convenience of a 2-car garage and enjoy the breathtaking views from the roof decks, adding an extra layer of sophistication to your living experience.

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.

Mioposto is a family-owned pizzeria, bar, and Italian kitchen that focuses on open-flame cooking and big, hand-crafted flavors. This week, I visited their Mercer Island location with some friends and enjoyed the delicious Vegan Margherita Pizza. It was outstanding and we had the best time out to dinner! Their restaurants are located in cozy neighborhoods and their ambiance is unmatched. In addition, they are committed to investing in our community and strive to protect the environment by sourcing ingredients domestically and locally to lessen their impact on the planet. Mioposto has four amazing restaurants throughout the PNW so if you are in the mood for incredible food and beverages, check them out!
