That time again.

Dec 27, 2018 || 10:59 pm
It’s that time again. Time for a gushy Facebook post about the love of my life, John Roquemore. 9 years of marriage this week, and life with him has always been getting better and better. But this last year, I feel like I’ve seen him come to life that much more. He’s set goals and crushed them. He’s made the harder choice at every turn – leaning into growth and stepping into his potential more and more each time. 

Saying that I’m proud of him is really the very least of it. I beam with pride and fill up with gratitude often as I watch him adore his kids, and really play with them even when he doesn’t feel like it. It’s rare these days that he misses out on an opportunity to be PRESENT and making the most of the moments he is in. 

He loves me exactly the way I am, and loves me too much to let me stay that way – he’s constantly challenging me to grow, and encouraging me every step of the way. He has made a home for me – a space for me to feel safe to be my self, to shed off the expectations and the pressure, to laugh and love.

Started this on December 27th, thinking I’d have this written early. Finished it 3 weeks later. 

It’s that time again. Time for a gushy FB post about the love of my life, John Roquemore. We celebrated 9 years of marriage this month (01/01,) and life with him has always been getting better and better. But over this last year, I feel like I’ve seen him come to life so, so much more. He’s set goals in ways I’ve never seen and crushed them. He’s made courageous choices over and over again – leaning into growth and stepping into his potential more and more each time. 

Saying that I’m proud of him is really the very least of it. I beam with pride and overflow with gratitude often as I watch him adore our kids, and really play with them even when he doesn’t feel like it. It’s rare these days that he misses out on an opportunity to be PRESENT and making the most of the moments he is in. 

He loves me exactly the way I am, while also loving me far too much to let me stay that way – he is constantly challenging me to grow, and encouraging me every step of the way. He has made a home for me – a space for me to feel safe to be my self, to shed off expectations and pressure. He’s investing in other people and building meaningful friendships, he’s working so hard to provide for us. 

Sometimes, my breath still catches and I get misty-eyed just in awe that we ended up in this life together. That I ended up with someone that I genuinely want to stay up late talking to every chance I get, who looks at me like I’m truly his treasure. 

Being your wife is the greatest gift of my life, John Roquemore. The challenges have been aplenty these last 9 years, and the joy even more so. Here’s to more challenges, more joy, and hopefully many, many more years by your side.
