Audrey Roloff and Jeremy Roloff are perhaps the most visible couple on Little People, Big World.
That’s not just because they both have the best hair in the family. It helps that they’re both very active on social media, giving fans glimpses into their lives and thoughts — even when their show is on hiatus.
Jeremy posted a beautiful tribute to his wife on a very special anniversary. And he included some great throwback photos of the two of them.
Jeremy and Audrey have brought so much sweetness into each other’s lives, the lives of the Roloff family, and onto the screens of fans and viewers.
All of that visibility has its drawbacks, unfortunately.
That means that fans can grow hostile when Audrey Roloff appears talks about her faith in order to sell something.
(She’s a businesswoman and Christianity is part of her brand)
It also means that Jeremy Roloff gets parent-shamed for tickling Ember Jean.
(The concern comes from a good place, about children setting boundaries, but Ember Jean is a baby and Jeremy’s interactions with her are healthy)
But we’re glad that Auj and Jer wade through that hefty criticism, because it means that they can share precious posts.
Jeremy posted a series of throwbacks of himself with Audrey, writing:
“I met my wife eight years ago today on a blind date.”
That’s so sweet! A lot of people dread blind dates, but sometimes, you meet the love of your life.
“It’s been a wild and unexpected eight years.”
It sure has! They’re now married parents as well as reality stars.
(For the record, in case you remember Audrey and Jeremy’s seven-year-old “anniversary” pic, it sounds like they didn’t start dating right away after their blind date. They’re just marking eight years since they met)
Jeremy continues his sweet tribute (among the photos in which he and Audrey look dramatically younger) by musing upon the ways in which we both do and do not decide our own destinies.
“We never get to choose where we end up, our daily choices choose for us.”
We believe that what he’s saying here is that you don’t end up with someone by deciding that you’ll love them for the rest of our life, but by choosing to spend time with them as you know each other.
That’s harder, but ultimately that’s how life works: one day at a time.
“When we are old and grey I imagine the greatest thing will be looking back at the love story we have written.”
That’s so sweet! And, of course, they’re already looking back on their love story.
Jeremy uses a quote to speak about the next period in his and Audrey’s lives.
“For the next half: ‘if it’s half as good as the half we’ve know, then here’s hail! to the rest of the road.’ A Severe Mercy.”
Very poetic and very sweet.
And then he finishes his tribute:
“Cheers babe! (P.S. I love this photo of you)”
It’s not clear which photo he means, because he shared so many and they’re all great.
And look how far they’ve come.
Their daughter, Ember Jean, is precious beyond words. We imagine that we’ll get to see so much more of that little one and her parents on the new season of Little People, Big World which is apparently coming out in a few months.
It’s possible that Auj hasn’t always gotten along well with her entire family, but whatever conflict there was between Audrey and Jacob Roloff seems to be resolved.
If it was ever there to begin with.
We all look forwarding to seeing Audrey and Jeremy’s next 8 years of knowing each other.
