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.

A Vancouver meet up

We love a good excuse to travel, so when we received word Cameron's brother's family would be ending their Alaska cruise in Vancouver, we thought it was the perfect time to come up for the weekend. We stayed at the Sheraton Wall Centre and were delighted with the floor to ceiling windows. Waking up to this view, I was able to pretend I was living in a big city like New York.

We spent the morning walking along the waterfront and watching the float planes take off and land.

Later in the day we met up with Ryan and his family. We enjoyed touring the city on the hop on hop off

bus

, eating lunch and catching up. One good way to document the passage of time is to have children turning into young adults before your very eyes. It is not only very exciting, but extremely noticeable when you are not around them all the time.

The destruction and remnants of the

riots

were visible everywhere. There were numerous boarded up windows each covered with comments from well wishers from the around the world. Some of favorites are as follows:

"Stupidity is better as a secret"

"Dumb people did this, not fans"

"It is easy to break a window, hard impossible to break spirit.
