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.

How prepared are you?

Over the past week, I have repeatedly asked myself this question. Not the point where I am running out buying potassium iodide, but where preparedness is at the forefront of my mind. In order to make something good come from all the bad occurring in Japan, I thought it was high time we revamped our 3 day survival kit, car kit and first aid kit. A good starting place for me has been the Red Cross site.

When it comes to being prepared I take a portable approach. I want everything to fit into a large backpack in which I can be out of my home in a flash. Given this notion, weight is an important factor when considering all items.

I have also been shopping around for the most stylish first aid kit out there and came across this one from Radius. Oh, how I love good Danish design.

In addition, I would love to hear any of your best preparedness tips.

S is for spring and sunshine

Happy St. Patrick's Day!!
