Peanut Butter

Husband is British.  I have a British mother and was very close to my British grandmother so there are times when our upbringing and childhoods seem very similar.  We've been together for 6 years now so most of the time I forget the differences we had to deal with at the beginning.  However, about 2 years ago we were out with friends and everyone got discussing their significant-others' quirks and strange habit. 

I'm sure I told some story or other about Husband so he replied "Well, what's that strange thing you like to eat?  Peanut butter and.... jam, is it?"  Everyone else at the table cracked up.  It took us quite awhile to stop laughing.  Actually, whenever it's mentioned in front of Bestie she still laughs uncontrollably. 

You see, the Brits don't really get our love of peanut butter and it's because they've failed to understand that Peanut Butter just cannot handle being single.  Peanut Butter is always in a relationship and is its best self when presented as a couple.  Peanut butter and banana, Peanut Butter and honey, Peanut butter and chocolate (or nutella... yum) and the iconic pairing  Peanut Butter and Jelly.

So earlier this week I came across this Small Bird Studios free printable on her facebook page I knew I just had to print it off for Husband for Valentine's Day.  When you're married to a man who cannot handle mushy emotion then Valentines that mock are pretty much perfect!
