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.

Scenes from the weekend


There is no doubt about it, Fall is here. We knew the forecast was going to be a bit glum this weekend, so we decided to head to the pumpkin patch before the crowds hit. I am like a kid in a candy store at the pumpkin patch. I need to walk up and down checking and rechecking each pumpkin to make certain I've selected the one I wanted. Cameron on the other hand is more decisive and just knows when he spots his. 


The sky was grey and there was a sprinkle or two while we were there, but nothing which required a jacket or an umbrella. 


Here I am having selected just the perfect pumpkin. However, I still continued to tromp through the patch and step on all the moldy ones. What can I say, I am a child at heart.


One of the highlights of this trip was finding the cutest little pumpkin I have ever seen in my life. I took it home as a part of a set of four. Each pumpkin getting gradually a tad bigger of course.


I really agonized over which gourds to buy. I just wanted them all, but mainly decided on the ones which looked like they were covered in warts.


After the patch we went out to


and then played a little

mini golf

. Apparently, I've got game because I won both games we played. Yeah for me!!!
