Welcome to our PB&J Adventure Book!

Welcome to our PB&J happy place! This is a space for us to continue our PB&J adventures, stories and fun from my PBandJellyJenn page on Instagram.

Why PB&J?
Let me start by introducing ourselves. I'm Jenn or "J" from PB&J. My other half is Peter or "PB". Together we make up the duo of PB&J. You may ask, "why PB&J"? The story goes... way back when, I mean, really back in the day when we were just two college students in the dating phase. Peter had made a random joke about how our initials made up PB&J and how it was "perfect because we go together like peanut butter and jelly!". You can say the name sort of stuck with us over the years and evolved into the identity that most of you know us by today!

Our PB&J Happily Ever After...
We're just your average married couple, with an above average love for Disney. Although I have to admit that I'm a *little* more obsessed than PB is about the magic, but being the great other half he is, he gives into my Disney cray to make me happy. We love Disney so much that a majority of our relationship milestones have taken place at Disneyland over the years! From our first "I love you", the marriage proposal, our wedding (yes, you can get married at Disneyland!) and most recently an epic 5 year surprise anniversary inside Disneyland. More to come on these events at a later time, but to sum it up, we infuse Disney into our lives... a lot!

I'm sure 90% of my future posts will be involving something Disney related, whether a Disney adventure recap, merchandise reveal, style find, or just general Disney geekery.

We're also a duo that loves to travel. There's nothing more exciting than getting on a plane with a fun destination in store. One of the best parts of starting this blog is to be able to recap and share all of our travels. One of our most favorite destinations in the world is Tokyo! I get a lot questions about this particular travel spot, so i'll be covering more this locale soon.

Hope, Hearts & #PBJstrong
We've definitely had our share of exciting moments over the years, but most recently we've experienced something that no one should ever have to face. In September 2016 we found out our PB&J duo was turning into a trio. We were pregnant with a baby boy. At 20 weeks and 4 days we were told by doctors that our son had a serious and rare congenital heart defect. The next few weeks turned out to be the most painful and darkest days of our lives. Our baby boy passed in early January 2017 and we've been on a healing path ever since. This was another major reason for starting this blog. Being open about our loss and being able to share our journey has truly helped my own personal path to healing. This is a space for sharing our entire PB&J story, both with all the highs and the lows that may come our way.
#PBJstrong for our son. Forever and always in our hearts.

Stay Tuned...
Thank you for taking the time to read the very first post here on our #PBJadventurebook. Check back soon for even more stories on our adventures, Disney fun and more! Hugs and hearts from PB&J 💜

I for one know that I am very grateful of others sharing with me.
