I’m sitting here at a loss for words.

Truly stunned by the beauty and power of faith.

Of prayers answered.

And of the support system that surrounds me and my loved ones.

…and without getting into too many details (far too many to get into here!)…my husband, my rock and my best friend, is finally employed once again.

After over a year of searching and discovering and learning.

Of outlining his new path…towards his dream. To return to his roots as a teacher.

…and today, that dream became a reality for him.

For those of you who know my husband, for him to teach is innate. His father was a teacher (and an amazing one at that). His aunt and uncle both teach.

…he should have been a teacher from day one.

But alas, his path to teaching ended up being a much longer road to get there. A detour that led him to me (we met while both working at the same supermarket). A detour I’m incredibly grateful for, for that reason alone.

So today, to see him come full circle. Returning to his roots. Reaching for and following his dreams?

Well I sit here today, humbled.  Joyfully so.

Overflowing with faith.


Proudest. Wife. Ever. ❤

  1. Awww!! Love this sis. I am the proudest sister in law and SISTER ever…you helped him pursue his dreams, no matter what, and that is the most invaluable thing you could ever do. Selfless, really. Cheers to a new beginning, a new road, and to one hell of an awesome teacher! GO SCOTT!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • Thank you sis – that means the world to me. You’ve been so incredibly supportive this past year+ and it’s made such a difference as we worked through everything that came with his layoff. I can’t concentrate to save my life today because of it! I’m just sitting here beaming with pride – staring at my computer like a dummy. 😉

    • Your comment gave me goosebumps!! You’re absolutely right – part of a grand master plan that I’m so grateful to see unfolding in bits and pieces before my eyes.

    • Faith is an amazing thing. And honestly, I’ll always call this time (during his layoff) a blessing for us – we are a much stronger couple because of it so I don’t regret this past year in the slightest. And now? He can follow his dream and that makes my heart sing with joy. Truly.

  2. Congratulations Husband!!!!! I am so happy for you guys:) Sounds like you are having an amazing summer filled with joy and happiness. I hope it continues for you both!

    • It really has been unreal how things are all coming together at last. I guess those patience pants of mine are starting to fit a little bit better than before 😉 All in due time!

    • It’s been a long road – but one that has taught us SO MUCH about ourselves and our relationship so I’m very thankful for that. And SO grateful that Scott can follow his heart. He SO deserves it.

  3. Congrats to the Hubs!!! Unemployment is such a stressor and so hard to deal with day by day – I’m so glad that things are looking WAY UP for you two 🙂

  4. Congratulations! Your husband’s story gives me hope that I will find another job in teaching. I was laid off at the end of the school year and continue to search. It’s so great to hear that dreams are coming true for you both!

    • Thank you!! I will send good vibes your way that you too will be gainfully employed once again – and a teacher too, no less! Hang in there (and thanks for stopping by!)

  5. Such a fantastic piece of news!!!! I can’t wait to feel that “I finally got there” moment when I get a job I’ve been dreaming of getting. I know that the day I found out Herrick got his dream job, I was ecstatic. It was also the day I found out I could get into a wellness program. 🙂 Things have a way of working themselves out and moving in the direction of a blessing. A humongous congratulations to your hubby, Jess. I’m SO happy for him and for you as well. Good things happen to good people, Jess. XOXO
