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.

Advent Calendar


As much fun as it is to open a little gift or a piece of candy each day, I decided to switch to a holiday activity each day instead. Overall, I thought it would be more fun to have a holiday experience to look forward to instead of more treats.

Most activities are either free, cost very little or merely require a ride in the car.

The list includes:

Drive around to look at the holiday lights

Deliver christmas cookies to our neighbors

Watch Elf, the movie

Ride on the Christmas Ships

Host a Pie party

Make Christmas cookies

Get dressed up and eating out at a restaurant all decorated for Christmas

Make a Christmas wreath

Purchase a holiday outfit

Pull out the Christmas music

Make homemade marshmallows

How to:

Cut strips of paper and write activity out on each.

Fold papers in half

Cut out numbers and attach to folded slips of paper

Attach to wall with washi tape

Note: Since we will be out of town for Christmas, I purposely stopped the calendar on the date we are leaving.
