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.

Picking my way through Summer


This Summer we have been fortunate to spend a ton of time outdoors, in particular berry picking. We have been strawberry picking, raspberry picking, blackberry picking and now blueberry picking. For deliciousness factor my favorite berries to pick are raspberries, but I also appreciate the thoughtfulness of blackberries to be free and plentiful and the ease in which clusters of blueberries fall off the branches. Basically, I love all berries for different reasons.

What are your favorite berries to pick in the Summer?

Ripe for the picking


Harvold's is our favorite for strawberries and raspberries, located at 32325 NE 55th Street Carnation, WA 98014. They only accept cash so plan accordingly. 

Larsen Lake and Mercer Slough are convenient places in Bellevue to go blueberry picking. Both have produce stands in addition and Mercer Slough accepts credit cards.

Bybee Nims located in the shadow of Mt. Si is the most scenic place for blueberry picking, but a tad pricer than the two places in Bellevue.


Here is a comprehensive list of where you can blueberry pick around the state.
