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.


Whether out of convenience, laziness or mere necessity we tend to label people. She is the smart one, the pretty one, has the adorable kids or wears the cute clothes. Whether we know it or not, we all have been watered down to a few short words. I surmise we have even done this ourselves when asked to identify someone. Oftentimes, we resort to a few superficial comments about a person and then move on.

Oh how great it is to be surrounded by someone who know us for our true selves (ugly parts and all) and not just as the smart girl at school or the fashionable woman at church. Interestingly enough, I have found when you are part of a long term relationship it is easy to think of your other half as having certain qualities you yourself do not possess. In my own relationship I oftentimes have thought, he is the funny one, the one with a good sense of direction or the one with the sweet tooth. There really is no reason for categorizing ourselves this way, other than we tend to compare ourselves to others.

This week let's try to insert more meaningful descriptors when describing people (ie. she is the one with a good heart or positive attitude) and allow ourselves from time to time to be the funny one, the one with a good sense of direction or the one with the sweet tooth.

Is it just me or does anyone else find themselves doing this?

I have found hoods can block the wind and then quickly make you feel like a wanna be gangster.

Maybe we can both be "the funny one" for a day.
However, sometimes labels hold true........... like how we Seattleites act like freaks when the sun comes out and mistake mid fifty degree days as Summer.
