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.

Strawberry Picking at Harvold's

Harvold's has been my family's long time favorite place for berry picking. Unlike many farms, they forgo the additional merchandise and instead focus solely on the berries and their quality. I remember learning how to pick berries at a very young age and eating more than my fair share of those berries while in the field. Amazingly enough, this was Cameron's very first time ever picking berries. Despite the soaring temperatures, he was driven and focus, with his head down picking I knew he meant business.

You wouldn't think after years of picking that I would make a rookie mistake like wearing white shorts, but we sort of ended up here on a whim.

Nothing beats berries straight from the patch.

In the end, we picked sixteen pounds of strawberries. It was quite the challenge to consume that many berries before they go bad, so we ended up freezing some to enjoy later. I may or may not have picked more than a certain someone, but that is neither here nor there.

Do you have a favorite place to go berry picking?
