Welcome to Two Good Things – Bjork Family Blog.
At our house we eat dinner together as a family and each person takes turns sharing two good things about their day. This simple daily tradition helps us stay connected. Two Good Things, the Bjork family blog, shows a normal family doing normal things which in today’s day and age is rather abnormal.
We have a wide range of interests from food and family to airplanes and do it yourself projects. Meet the contributors (aka members of the family) and use the tabs at the top to navigate to those stories and topics that most interest you.
Every family has a story. Welcome to ours.
