About Us

Where we were. What we ate. What we made. Watch Us Roam.

Watch Us Roam is a life journal, a space to highlight the creativity in the every day, a space to share the journey of our lives. What we made, where we were, what we ate: those things are nothing without a story. Roaming is freedom, a carefree, but careful spirit, and we may not make updates every day, but that makes it even more special. So whether it’s traveling the globe, photography, sharing new recipes, coordinating a vintage wedding, or providing encouragement, we haven’t been everywhere, but it’s on our list. Come roam with us!

Hi! I’m Amanda- creator of Watch Us Roam. I was born and raised in the heartland of the “show-me state”, and because of that I’m a little more stubborn than I like to admit, love animals more than most, and don’t mind getting my hands dirty in the kitchen or actual dirt. Being a bit of a free spirit, I studied abroad in Costa Rica and England, and after graduate school found myself in Memphis, Tennessee, then Kansas City, Missouri. I recently moved to Seattle and am loving becoming a real Pacific Northwesterner. My maternal grandmother’s name was Roma, and in a way this space is very much a tribute to her. Well traveled, intelligent, and proud, she did everything herself and never wasted anything. I carry many traits of both of my grandmothers with me always, but the three that mean the most to me are adventure, creativity, and making the most of what you have. Also, I take a lot of pictures. You can view some special ones here. Cheers!
