Good News + Gratitudes Jar 3.0

If you've been following me here or on social media for a while, you know that a couple of years ago, my family and I started a Good News + Gratitudes Jar. You can see last years post about it here (including tips on how we set ours up). Admittedly, the number of notes seemed to be a little less than past years, but nonetheless, many sweet, thoughtful, and kind notes were written and we shared them with each other on News Year Day. I think everyone secretly loves this family tradition; I've already spotted every one of my family members writing notes to add to this years jar! What family traditions do you love to do with your family? I'd love to hear in the comments.

Happy New Year!
