There's a full post coming, but I'm at work, and there's a lot that needs to be done. A long vacation makes for lots of catching up.

But for now, a quick update:

I have a stamp on my passport.

We spent our entire time in Placencia, Belize. Which was incredible.

I read five books.

I went nine days without wearing heels. Because, I did buy and bring a pair of platform wedges, and insisted on wearing them one night. Standing at a bar with Billy, I admitted that I would've felt stupid had I worn stilettos. And I never wore the wedges again, because they are not conducive to walking in sand.

The only makeup I wore (if you don't count tinted moisturizer) was mascara, which I only applied twice during our ten day trip.

I snorkeled. There was a Lemon Shark in the water. Lemon Sharks are not big, per se, but they are still SHARKS.

I had an amazing time.

It sucks to be home.

I cried when I left. For two reasons: One, it was the first time I actually didn't want to go home from a vacation. Two, I was leaving Billy there.

It feels like I was gone for a month, but at the same time, it feels like I was only gone for a few days.

I'm already thinking about how I can work "When I was Belize" into my future conversations.

I thanked Billy every day for taking me. But I feel that my words of thanks fell short of truly expressing my gratitude.

I miss Billy.

But, God, I had such an amazing time.

There will be much, much more about this trip (including pictures) in the very near future.

I sobbed a little when you mentioned 9 days with no heels :) Though I will in your place ( sans heels) in July.
