i'm back

 
and just like that, i'm back. back in my home office, for now, sipping coffee and listening to good, long Jocko podcasts while I wait for my husband to get home from the base so he, my sister, and i can train together. for now i'm back in vermont after a long trip away, i'm back to long days of editing, working, writing, training karate, and spending time with the people that matter most in the world to me, my beautiful family.

it usually takes a bit of hustle to get caught up on everything, and that's exactly where i find myself right now: grinding hard to get caught up on everything - everything as in book 3, which is off to my editor the first week of november. (woo!)

but catching up on all the work is a minute price to pay for the incredible time Tyler and I had, taking a month to go backpacking in Europe. Ireland was by far one of the coolest places I've ever hiked, and on top of that, we were there for BOOK 3 RESEARCH PURPOSES. if you follow me on instagram, you might have caught me that time i hopped on for a quick story while i was hiking through the wicklow mountains, which are spectacular, pictured above, and a HUGE setting for this next book. (have i mentioned that i can't WAIT for you to read this book??)

so all this to say, excuse my silence, but i'm hard at work over here, thinking of you guys and looking forward to getting this next book into your hands. i also have a ton of Irish beauty to share with you guys; i was really relishing in my new camera on this trip. i think its safe to say you can't go to ireland sans-camera, because the landscapes are just too mind-blowing. it's the kind of place you want to soak in and remember forever.


but enough about me - what have you been up to this month? what projects are you tackling this fall? I'd love to hear all about what's been keeping you motivated this week. 

stay stoked,
kate
