Today starts a new summer series on the blog, yayyy!

Each #1wordwednesday I’ll share an easy family {tradition} you could implement into your everyday family life in 5 minutes or less.

{Traditions} don’t have to be complicated and they don’t have to revolve around holidays. Resist the urge to over-think this concept. I’ve been guilty of putting off family things I think I “should” do because I don’t have time to think or plan – or I don’t know how to do it exactly right. I’m giving you permission to throw those ideas right out the window into the summer breeze.

{Traditions} in our family are more like simple habits we’ve stumble into that draw us closer to each other and make our family us. That’s it! And you can do it too.

Here we go with week 1 – a question we ask around our family dinner table every single night:

“What was the favorite part of your day?”

Our girls usually remember to bring up the question before we do and it’s hilarious to hear how they come up with their answers. Some days they can’t even contain themselves to one specific item. So they tell us all 3…

I. Love. It.

This question is so much better than, “Tell me what you did today.”Β  – which is almost always answered by, “I don’t know.”

Right???

This question lets you see into their hearts and what excites your child. What puts sparkles into their eyes? Sometimes it can be the things you’d least expect. It’s also fun to hear the adult answers.

This one question has created more conversation around our dinner table and that is a mighty good thing!

We don’t just limit this tradition to our own family – we’ll include anyone else we happen to be dining with, so be prepared if you join us for dinner!
