Moving to Germany from the USA – One Year Later

Moving abroad to any foreign country is hard, especially if you have little ones with you as we did. And while life in Germany was difficult when we first got here, a year later, we’re now able to look back and laugh, and what was once hard is now easy!

Things That Were Hard at First but are Easier One Year Later

One year ago, we left the USA for Germany and entered into the greatest adventure of our lives! It has been a journey full of exciting times, mistakes, accomplishments, fun, and also challenges. Today, we’re talking about all the things that were really hard for us last year when we first moved but are much easier now.

Our Story

In February 2021, we packed up our American family of six, with four kids ages 11 and under, and moved halfway across the world to Germany to follow our dream of living in Europe again! When we were first married, we lived for two years in France and fell in love with the European way of life. Moving to Germany has been a whirlwind, especially with four kids in tow, but we’re already growing stronger and better from the experiences we are having. It has NOT been easy, but that’s how it usually is in life when you go after your dreams!
