A little bit about Lisette.....

Born and raised in the Pacific Northwest I feel most alive surrounded by trees and breathing in the fresh mountain air.

When I am not working you will most likely find me spending time outdoors, volunteering with my church and exploring this beautiful planet with my family. 

This is my place to share my passion for life and to encourage you to take time to find the extraordinary in your life.

The magical years

As a childless woman I am not one to profess my knowledge of children, how to raise them or how to respond to them, but I will say from my limited experience (between nieces, nephews and friend's children) the magical years for children are really three to ten. During these years the combination of fun factor, independence and cuteness is really at its optimal. When everything they say and do (whether good or bad) either makes for a great photo or a great story later.

We had the opportunity to spend a decent amount of time with my nieces these past few weeks who all fall within the magical year age range and had a blast. They are sweet with just enough to spice to keep you on your toes. They are funny and entertaining and make you feel more fun and entertaining in their presence. They are good people to get silly with and good people to get hugs from. Although we thoroughly enjoy our childless existence, we are grateful to my sister for having additional people for us to love.

Cameron is just the right combination of silly and fun to entertain any child for hours.

I love the sagging pants and the challenge of getting a good shot.

If everyone would cooperate, now that would be no fun at all.....but then again that is the perspective of an aunt, not a mother.

Markets, Ice Cream, Cable Cars and Churches

Happy weekend!!
