Expat Stories

Here I will be featuring stories of other American families that have made the move to Mexico. These stories will dig into: why they moved, how they made it happen and lessons learned along the way. I hope these stories — and our own — help inspire you to plan your own family’s escape/journey – wherever you may land. 

If you are an American family living in Mexico and would like to share your story, please connect with me on Instagram or Facebook, or fill out this survey. With your permission, I may feature your story on this page!
