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.

Day trip: University of Washington campus + Suzzallo Reading Room

Strolling around The University of Washington's campus can be incredibly beautiful any time of year, but it is especially nice this time of year when all the cherry blossom trees are in bloom. The architecture and detail of many of the old buildings are intriguing and even after walking these pathways for four years, I have noticed things I never saw while zipping to and from my classes. The cherry blossoms draw a ton of people to the campus, so it is especially bustling on weekends and on sunny afternoons. My recommendation would be to go early in the morning before classes start and have the place to yourself. Check out their bloom status here.

You will find the cherry blossoms in The Quad. Locate it on this map just NE of Suzzallo Library.

After you have taken your fair share of photographs and the gorgeous collegiate feeling, head over to Suzzallo Library and take the stairs up to the reading room. It is a nice and quiet spot where I spent several of my college years taking naps.........I mean studying.
