Welcome to Bicultural Familia!
Here on the blog, we’ll share more about our family and our life in South Texas. Click here to learn more about our big move.
We’ll also share a little more about ourselves — ‘bicultural mom’ (Chantilly), ‘bicultural papi’ (Ricardo), and two little ‘bicultural niños’ (our seven year old and almost two year old).
Follow along as we share what our familia is up to and some of the topics we’re most passionate about.
We hope you’ll join us on this journey and share your own stories with us too.
So, what is a ‘bicultural familia’ anyway?
A bicultural familia is one that is immersed simultaneously within two cultures, celebrating both languages, traditions and more.
You might be surprised to discover that most families are bicultural or multicultural in one way or another. If you’re reading this blog, it’s likely that yours is too. ♥
About Chantilly (Bicultural Mom)
I’m a woman, wife, mother and lifetime student. I love reading, watching documentaries, and keeping up with the latest technology. I pretty much geek out about anything science or history related…especially when it comes to exploring the unknown (nazca lines, tenochtitlán, etc.).
I’m a former Sociology / Cultural Anthropology / Spanish student and my husband shares my passion for all of these things. We have deep conversations about everything from politics to raising kids. Those long talks and passionate arguements are what drew us together.
About Ricardo (Bicultural Papi)
Qué onda, gente!?
I’m a family man, devoted to my wife and kids. Raised in the great state of TEXAS!
Bicultural Familia is a place where my voice can be be heard. I speak out on the issues that matter to me most. I speak up for the downtrodden and the disenfranchised. It’s a place where I share my creative inspirations. It’s where I share my family’s stories and my stories.
I invite you to listen to my personal reflections and share your own stories. Travel this journey with me. It’s a journey of self reflections, reactions and bicultural identity.
My Mission: to share untold stories and to call attention to life, family, culture, food and everything else that makes up a part of my identity as a man, father, husband, Tejano.
My abuelo has been and always will be a huge influence in my life. Expect to hear more stories and quotes from mi abuelo.
“Mijo, you’re wild, but there are great things ahead for you. You just have to keep on the path that leads you to the place you want to end up.” – abuelo
