Hola Amigas

Today I’m in Mexico. For a friend’s wedding! Sun, relaxation, books, margaritas. I’m very excited.

At the wedding will be three good local friends (four if we include the bride) who I haven’t seen in weeks. Or is it months? They live in Chicago, but for some reason—travel schedules, night classes, more weddings—we haven’t hung out in ages. As one of these ladies texted me recently, “I can’t believe we live half a block away and need to travel to Mexico to hang out.”

Needless to say, I’m looking forward to a weekend with the ladies.

Which of course reminded me of another wedding-related trip to Mexico, though this one under different cricumstances.

I’m speaking, of course, of everyone’s favorite BFFs, the ladies of  Sex and The City, when they took a girls-only honeymoon to Mexico after Carrie’s canceled wedding. I truly believe that Carrie, Samantha, Charlotte and Miranda’s Sunday brunches and Saturday night cosmos made American women everywhere take stock of their last-minute brunch buddies. They were the best besties.

And so, here, a Friday video clip. I’m thinking my Mexico trip will be just like this one…sans the broken engagement. And here’s hoping that I’m one of the laughing ladies. Someone else gets to play Charlotte, por favor.
