It's really easy for me to get lost in work and the desire to be productive. I was raised by an accomplishment system (my parents would reward me for every book read, every good grade earned) so it's hard to take time away to do anything that doesn't feel like it's helping me build my career.
I've been working nonstop for the past 4 months on back to back projects - Miss 2059 which comes out Nov 7 and Youth & Consequences which will come out next year - and I was worried that this weekend would completely run me into the ground of exhaustion that I've already been operating at for the last few weeks.
But I forgot how great being immersed in nature can be.
And how wonderful it is to be surrounded by inspirational, strong, powerful & compassionate women I admire.
Though we are exhausted from the eternal climb of Los Angeles & the very literal climb of our hike, it's so good to be here
❀️
Don't forget to take a break once in awhile.

It's real bright in Ogden, UT. Then cold. Then it rains and has thunder and lightning and stuff. After living in LA for 7 years where there is no weather, this is a thing.
