Katie returns as the Bachelorette! I curated some resources to prep for the premiere.

I was inspired by her latest promo pics (see below) and was going to draw her with a rose, but chose a different accessory instead ... Something she could still hold onto after Matt James sent her home.

I'm watching for the drama, distraction, hilarious tweets, and a good excuse to drink rose.
