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- main creator and editor 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’ve lived in Costa Rica, Manchester, England, Memphis, Tennessee, Kansas City, Missouri, and have settled (for now) with my husband and dogs in Seattle. After three years here, we are still exploring and attempting to become Pacific Northwesterners. In my day job I’m an event producer, and recently moved from tech back into the world of cancer research, specifically in women’s health education around ovarian and breast cancer.

My maternal grandmother’s name was Roma, and in a way this space is very much a tribute to her, all the women who came before us, and those who are currently blazing new trails. Independent, well educated despite being born dirt poor in the early 1920’s, well traveled, intelligent, and always proud of their work, both of my grandmothers, and of course my mother, were and still are major influences in my life. They beat breast cancer, did everything themselves and never wasted anything – time or resources. I owe my tenacity to them. My own values are love, adventure, creativity, and making the most of what you have. Also, I take pictures sometimes. I like the idea of tapping into my nomadic ancestry roots, and roaming the world comes natural to me. The goal is to share a little corner of it with you. Glad you are here, now come #WatchUsRoam!
