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.

According to the calendar, Summer has not even begun, but who can even tell by the glorious weather we have been enjoying around Seattle. As you might know, one of my favorite parts of Summer is being out on the water and what better way to enjoy the beautiful Northwest than going on a Whale Watching Tour?

In honor of my blog's five year anniversary we are teaming up with some wonderful local vendors to allow our readers to share in the festivities all month long. Today, I am happy to announce we will be giving away one Whale Watching Tour through 

Island Adventures

 with me.

All of our tours are guaranteed whale watching trips; if you don't see a Minke, a Humpback, a Gray, or an Orca you get to come back again for free until you do!  

They run tours until the end of November and then take a short winter break before starting back up for their Everett Gray Whale program in March 2014."
