Hi and thank you for checking out our meetup group. We are a group of expat wives and partners who live broadly inside the 610 Loop although we are a little relaxed about our loops so if you live within Beltway 8, that loop is good too - so the Heights, Memorial, Energy Corridor etc. Our aim is to meet others in the same boat, woman who have moved from other countries into Houston or American women who have lived overseas and returned. We share stories, ideas and our experiences of living and working in Houston. Its a good way to make new friends. We keep the group to those living close by so that any new friends you make will live under 20 minutes away. That way, those friendships have a chance to flourish. If you live in the suburbs, we'd be happy to tell you about groups more local to you!
We welcome expat wives/partners who are new arrivals to Houston as well as those who have been here for years and those who have chosen to make Houston home for the foreseeable future - so there should be the possibility of long term friendships as well as meeting people passing through for a couple of years!
We meet for coffee every second Friday of the month either at Tinies in West U or at La Madeline in Rice Village. We are truly international and woman of all ages.
We also have a Facebook page which is growing every day and is used for sharing ideas. Please join that too! Kay runs this side of things.
PLEASE - this group is purely social. Whilst we love to hear about your hobbies and work, please respect the other members, who just want a cuppa and a chat, by not using the group as a means to sell your services or prospect for business.
FYI. Its costs me (Fiona) $180 a year to run this group through Meet Up so we ask that if you come more than once you donate $5 to help cover the costs. Its a small price to pay for a fab group!
Thanks for your interest and we look forward to meeting you.
