As My Worlds Collide...

Time has never flown by so quickly for me as it has been doing so lately. It's only been 10 days since my last post, but I've been running around like a madwoman and thus I never seem to have enough time in the day to tick off everything on my to-do list. Maybe I'm really busy - or maybe I need a crash course in time management. Bueno...

This whole blogging business started with our wedding website (yes, dear reader, in case you didn't know I am in the midst of wedding planning). Since we sent out our "save-the-date" announcement, emails constantly pour in from family and friends around the world with one thing in common: "How are the wedding plans coming along?!?" Thus, the creation of yet another wedding blog in the seemingly endless blogosphere. For those who want to be in the know - they do so by checking out the latest here.

Then...moving to Mexico happened somewhere in the middle of all this wedding business. TA-DAAA: yet another blog! This one you are reading now ;)

At this point though, my two worlds (read: blogs) are coming together and I am finding that everything about ...findingmexico... at this moment in my life has to do with finding out what it's like prepping for a wedding in Mexico.

Hence my recent absence - all of my time dedicated to wedding planning that I figured has no place on here - but really, it gives me A LOT to write about. Getting married in Mexico is a whole other story...and allows me to find my very own Mexico in a whole other way.

This last week I confronted Mexican Immigration. Though armed with all the required documents, my visit turned out to be futile. Frustrating, considering how much time and effort it took to gather all the paperwork.

So maybe from here on out until end of November you won't read about great restaurants, hip neighborhoods, or secret spots in DF just yet; but there will be lots of musings, frustrations, and of course excitement as the big day nears.

And if you ever want to get married in Mexico - you know who to ask!!! ;)

*p.s. I do have a great restaurant recommendation! Check out Mankora - a Peruvian place in the heart of Polanco. YUMMY!
