The “real” jellybean crew: Matthew, Andrew and Alyssa Pajak and Liam Deimler, for inspiring such a fun and silly story.
Our husbands: Chris Pajak and Tim Deimler, for backing us up with their love and support along this exciting road of book publishing.
Our parents: Jim and Jane Tessmer, Mimi and Bob Backer and mother-in-law, Gloria Garcia, for your never-ending support – the words “thank you” just don’t seem to suffice.
Our editor-in-chief: Noelle Skodzinski, not just for taking the time to edit this book, but for bringing together the team of “Maggie & Marni.”
Our contributing editors: Jenny Tessmer and Jimmy Tessmer for taking the time to review and proof the book.
Our friends: Jenn Blaetz and Jessica Marcial who always offered their ears and eyes with fresh and honest perspective.
The Cooper Family: Mike, Joy, Sarah and Michael, for being the first family (besides ours) to love Jellybeans Morning, Noon & Night.
To all of our family and friends for checking in with us to see how the book was coming along and for your encouragement for following through with a dream (you know who you all are).
