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.

Thanksgiving Recap

My Mom has it all, from the beautiful house to the mad cooking skills. As a result, Thanksgiving, like most holidays among our family, is a day where we just show up. Since I never seem to make much in the way of a culinary contribution, this year I tried to get creative and make festive pins for the women in the family. Also, at the last minute I decided to make some Spicy Pecan Pumpkin Bread for a morning after treat.

The table was a group effort, with my sister making the sugar cone cornucopias, I brought the pressed leaves and my Mom making the ice centerpiece.

My Grandma was able to join us again this year, which was a special treat. And the plates we ate off were the plates she has used for many many years at her cabin.
My family is a little camera shy, so this photos of us will have to suffice as evidence we were there and had a wonderful, festive time.
