Meet Samantha

Growing up, I was always a bit of a writer. From essays to "day in the life" short stories drafted in a 99 cent spiral notebook, I felt there was always a story to be written. Flash forward into my teenage years and beyond, I started up random blogs here and there, but nothing ever stuck. It wasn't until 2014 when I was fighting the cubicle life that I found I desperately needed a creative outlet...thus, Samantha Rose Says was born.

I was born and raised in Florida. I grew up in St. Pete and went to Tampa for college where met my husband, Ryan, just a couple months after graduation. We bought our first home together back in St. Petersburg in March 2020, and we've been in the middle of renovating and decorating ever since.

I work as a pediatric speech-language pathologist, and while I absolutely adore my job, I find my greatest joys in my personal time. I love reading, journaling, and creating cozy spaces within our home. Ryan and I have two dogs together, Einstein and Benni, and will be welcoming our daughter to the family in November 2021.

I love the sense of community blogging has brought me thus far - as much as I blog for myself, I blog to share my story with others, too. I'm happy you're here.



  1. Hi Samantha! Just stumbled across your blog and had to say hi to a fellow Florida girl. I'm also a fan of a good strawberry marg...they're so much better than lime ones! Looking forward to following along! :)

  2. I stumbled across your account through Lauren-Loves. I am a speech therapist in Canada, and also love discussing names! I think your blog will become one that I read frequently :)
