Coucou, I’m Natasha, the American Mom behind American Mom – French State of Mind. After living in Pennsylvania all my life, I decided to make a significant change my moving to New York City in 2015. Who knew I meet my French hubby, Yannick, in a city of 8 million people. We have a beautiful baby girl, Jeanne, and our rescue dog Coco Bacon. As a result, we embarked on our French adventure, after taking a risk by moving to France during the pandemic.
In 2019, shortly after having my baby, I wanted an outlet to express my unique perspective as a wife to a native Frenchman who sometimes has conflicting views on my American ones. A place to help readers like you achieve your french adventures without breaking the bank. Therefore, American French Mom was created as an Expat Family Travel resource for travelers that want an authentic, affordable french lifestyle.
My mission is to support families on their French adventure while never settling on your dreams due to Finances. I will help you confidently travel & live in the South of France without breaking the bank, all while discovering France’s beauty.Tweet
