A Moving Story is a blog is about my family, food + travel and my inspired life.

Wife. Mother. Friend. Adventurer.

My name is Kim Sundy. I’m the editor of A Moving Story— and the proud mom of a tween boy and an English Springer Spaniel named, “Ranger”. Launched in 2012, A Moving Story features articles on travel, food and inspiration. I love to travel, visit restaurants and share my discoveries with my readers. As I navigate my thirties, I write honest, inspirational posts about my life experiences. Throughout my journey, I try to lead an inspired life, powered by positivity.

After two wonderful years in Mexico City, our family recently relocated to a very small town in western Michigan. While we’re excited to live at the beach and be a bit closer to the Big House in Ann Arbor, Michigan {Go Blue!}, living in a small town is sure to be a transition. I’m a former Army wife {Go Army! Beat Navy!} and this blog is called, “A Moving Story” because we’ve moved 13 times in 15 years of marriage. Moving, traveling and making friends are my expertise.

This site is updated at least four times a week. I also tweet, Instagram and Pin my adventures. Click on any of the links to learn more.

If you’re a new reader, you may enjoy my “new here” section, which is a collection of many of my favorite and most popular posts.

I created this award-winning lifestyle blog to catalogue my travels and stay connected with my family while living abroad as an expat in Mexico City. What began as a diary quickly became a go-to guide for English-speaking readers on restaurants, attractions and inspired living.

My reader is an intelligent, conscientious woman who loves to discover things ahead of the curve. Enthusiastic and loyal, she believes that the best is yet to come, that tomorrow’s another day and that there’s always a solution. Her peers know her as the reliable, out-going friend. She’s well-read and in-the-know on things that are under the radar. Because of this she’s the planner of the group if you’re going out and the person you can count on to stay and help clean up if you’re staying in! My blog and writing style appeals to an influencer audience and women like her.

As is common in the travel industry, I may receive complimentary travel or reduced rates at restaurants, hotels, resorts and attractions. If this happens, I always disclose these benefits at the end of a post. I strive to be fair and impartial in reviewing properties, attractions and destinations, even when I enjoy complimentary perks.

    Hi – Like you, I am soon to become a trailing spouse in the DF (moving this summer) and have read your blog with great interest! I have some questions that I would love to ask, about schools (I have a 13 year old), your relocation company, and how you found a ‘muchacha’…if you are willing, is there some way to email you privately? Love your blog!

    Then one day, my fiance came home and asked if I might like to move to Canada, and I said, “yes”. Did I mention, I had never even been to Canada? And since then, things haven’t been so predictable. SOOO SIMILAR! Isn`t, it? ;) Good luck for everything, but 1st of all, happy blogging! :)

    Hi! It’s been a while! I have been following your posts with great interest as my own move-date gets closer…I see that my blog has made it on your radar – thanks for the ‘like’ on the Lucha Libre post! I am still building a decent inventory of posts before I start to promote it, but am encouraged that a few people seem to have found it in the meantime. We will be making the shift likely in May, and I hope that we will be able to connect once we get there!
