Former Little People, Big World stars Audrey and Jeremy Roloff have shared their next career move, but they’re not all business.
Right after Jeremy admitted that their marriage has been “tough” in recent months, Audrey has taken to social media to gush about their anniversary trip.
And yes, there are photos of these two lovebirds — and of Jer’s reaction to Auj’s gift!
“It was my turn to plan our anniversary this year,” Audrey reveals in a lengthy Instagram post.
“We started switching off because we like surprising each other,” she explains. “And it was just easier for managing our expectations.”
“I booked us a night (our first night away from Ember) at the The Sentinel Hotel where we stayed on our wedding night 4 years ago,” Audrey shares..
“I remember when we checked in on our wedding night,” she continues. “Jer and I flipped out because there was a typewriter in the entry way.”
You don’t need to take her word for it — here is Jeremy’s typewriter-fueled excitement face.
“The typewriter holds a special meaning in our love story,” Auj explains. “Jeremy sent me hand typed letters throughout our years of long distance, he asked me to be his wife on the typewriter.”
“And,” she continues. “Our typewriter has been on display in every home we’ve ever lived in.”
Audrey says that having one on display serves the purpose of “reminding and inspiring us to write a love story worth reading.”
“I called ahead of time and made a request for a special anniversary message to be displayed on the typewriter upon our arrival,” Auj reveals.
The photo of Jer’s smiling face is his response to seeing the poem that was typed out on the device. Cute!
“We had the most enchanting evening in Portland,” Auj says. “And I finally got to experience the Multnomah Whiskey Library.”
“Of course we ended the evening reading our anniversary letters,” Audrey continues. “The ones we wrote to each other on our anniversary last year.”
“It’s our favorite anniversary tradition,” she shares.
Naturally, Audrey plugs their marriage blog: “You can read about some of our other favorites in our most recent post on @beating50.”
The name, of course, refers to their desire to beat the odds that suggest that at least half of all couples get divorced.
“Jer and I celebrate our anniversary as if it’s a national holiday,” Auj gushes.
She says: “We are firm believers that love, of all things, should especially be celebrated.”
“So no matter how inconvienent,” she writes. “We are inentional about carve out time on September 20th to reminisce the past year, dream for the future, and recommit to the promises made on our wedding day.”
“And,” Auj continues. “As our favorite quote from our favorite book says… ‘If it’s half as good as the half we’ve known, here’s Hail! to the rest of the road.'”
“Happy anniversary Farmer,” Audrey says. “Let’s keep living”
As we mentioned, on their actual anniversary of September 20, Jeremy wrote a tribute to his wife and marriage but made an admission.
“These have been tough months recently,” Jer wrote. “But hard work always pays off.”
He gushed: “I love you and I love writing a love story with you.”
Whatever their recent trials, whether it’s finding out how to stay afloat without the show, dealing with family drama, Auj’s alleged feud with Jeremy’s brother, or hidden marital squabbles, things seem okay for them.
It’s great that they’re celebrating their anniversary like this — but we’re sure that they’re looking forward to being reunited with precious baby Ember.
