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.

By all accounts we have had an unlikely Summer weather wise. Several trails will reportedly never thaw out and thousands of wildflowers will never make an appearance. As sad as this might sound, don't let it deter you from getting out there and taking a hike. This weekend we thought for certain Snow Lake's trail would be snow free and that we would be able to access Gem Lake. We were shocked when we read on the trail review that ice axes were still needed to make it there. A tad disappointed, we ventured onto Snow Lake and then took a detour to Source Lake. We spend a great deal of time snowshoeing in these parts, so seeing it in the Summer is always a new perspective.

The trail was relatively people free, but not entirely snow free.

After our hike, we headed over to downtown Kirkland for dinner and a walk. We lived there the first three years of marriage, so it has a special place in our hearts.

We enjoyed another gorgeous sunset on Lake Washington.
