Meri Brown Celebrates Personal Milestone Ahead of Sister Wives Return

by at .  Updated at .

Meri Brown finally has a cause for celebration.

She finally has a reason to be content on Instagram, rather than seemingly lost and confused and striving for some sort of happiness in life.

And she mostly has herself to thank for this.

Meri Brown is Actually Happy

To what are we referring here?

About three weeks before Brown returns to the small screen spotlight as a cast member on Sister Wives, she has taken to social media in order to give herself a well-deserved pat on the back.

The veteran reality star is celebrating two years of her bed and breakfast, Lizzie's Heritage Inn, being up and running for the residents and tourists in Utah, an accomplishment even Meri herself may not have been able to predict back when it opened.

"Blessed, pleased, and beyond grateful to celebrate two years of @lizzies_heritage_inn today," Brown captioned a photo of herself on the deck of the inn, adding:

"I can't believe it's been two years since our grand opening, how times flies! So excited for what the future holds!"

While Meri has found sucess with this project professionally, however, it has hurt her a bit on a personal level.

Way back when she wanted to open the business, Meri asked her fellow Sister Wives to chip for start-up costs.

They refused -- and basically ever since, tension has existed between Meri and her fellow stars.

Just consider what Meri wrote in May of this year:

These Sister Wives

I wish more women realized that helping another woman win, cheering her on, praying for her, or sharing a resource with her, does NOT take away from the blessings coming to them.

In fact, the more you give, the more you receive. Empowering women doesn’t come from selfishness but rather from selflessness.

To be fair to Meri, she didn't name Janelle, Robyn or Christine Brown within that message, of course.

But nearly all long-time Sister Wives fans were well aware of the situation and reference.

Heck, so was Kody Brown himself.

Not long after Meri wrote the above statement on Instagram, the family patriarch fired back at his most estranged wife.

"Bitterness is the undoing of creativity," Tweeted the family patriarch this spring, also not directly alluding to Meri, but adding:

"Thus, a poet allows his blood to sweeten with pain. May all pain sweeten your blood so you will access Source Energy and find Peace."

Yeah. Kody got all deep and profound there, didn't he?

But at least fans of this TLC franchise are lining up strongly behind Meri.

"Girl power... always believe in your self!" one follower wrote in response to her aforementioned two-year anniversary, as another added:

"You've really come into your element the last couple of years."

A third chimed in: "You belong there for sure. The glow in your face shows that."

Sister Wives, meanwhile, returns with new episodes on January 5.

The official network synopsis reads as follows:

Christine Brown with Kody

The sister wives have just moved to Flagstaff, Arizona, where they find that the ups and downs of their family's polygamist lifestyle are as dramatic as they've ever been.

Angry neighbors drive one wife out of her rental house and the cost of the many properties the family needs for Kody's four wives and many kids are threatening a financial disaster.

In hopes of reducing this burden, Kody makes plans for the whole family to build one giant house, but the wives are not so sure.

And an argument erupts when the Browns try to divide up their new property.

Tensions with first wife, Meri, are still unresolved and she goes back into therapy with Kody to try to fix their relationship. Of course, there's much to celebrate as well.
