About us


Hello! Our names are Cristian and Sonja, and this is our blog — the Joubert (Joe-BEAR) Den!

After being apart for 5 years, divine intervention brought us together again and we got married on November 4th, 2016. Read our love story here.


Blog posts about our wedding:

After years of off-and-on blogging on my part and feeling a need to redefine myself after being married for 10 months, I decided to retire my “Gingersnap” blog and focus on our lives together. I wanted a place where I could write about marriage, our belief and membership in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, AND still share outfit and lifestyle posts. This felt like it fit much better.

We live in Portland, Oregon and are expecting our first baby (A GIRL!!!) May 1st, 2018.
