I can't believe this day has finally come! And even though I am all ready to go, it hasn't quite hit me that I won't be home for a long, long time. I might even be in denial up until the dreaded airport-goodbyes tomorrow morning. So I wanted to take this time to thank you ALL for your love and support, not just these past few months, but throughout all of my travels. Times like these make me realize how truly lucky I am to have such wonderful friends and family.
I wish I could have seen everyone before I left, but please keep emailing me...and now I can finally post my address in Belize so you can send me letters! I am bringing stationary with me, so I will definitely write you back :) If you want, you can send me care packages, but the Peace Corps recommends that everything fit inside of a padded envelope (not only will it be much cheaper, but it will be less likely to be opened).
Here are a few pictures from the last week or so. I love you all SO much!!!
My going-away party on Sunday night.
Gram and Gramps at my party.
Ashley, the bride-to-be, opening her presents at the shower.
My best friend, who I adore.
I shall try and post another entry as soon possible. The next time you hear from me I will be in BELIZE!!
Besos y abrazos.
