Hi and thank you for checking out our meetup group. We are a group of expat wives and partners who live inside the 610 Loop. We do welcome people from a little further away in Houston (Heights, Memorial etc) but we always meet inside the loop. 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 a Tinies in West U or in someone's home. 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 and is not a business networking group. No realtors or anyone coming with the main purpose of trying to sell a product or service. No handing out of business cards!
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.
Fiona and Kay
