I did a post like this for our first year of marriage and it was so fun! I know numbers can’t fully describe everything, but sometimes it is fun to get a little snapshot using only quantities! 🙂 Plus, this acts as a little life update as well.
Here’s what this crazy summer has looked like for us, in numbers.
Summer 2016, In Numbers:
41 // total days we spent away from home this summer
3 // countries visited in July
4 // flights in July
12 // cost in dollars of the airpot’s Dramamine that saved my sanity (who knew, after traveling to Cambodia and more over the years, that I’d get motion sick on this trip?!)
0 // number of bags the 4 of us checked on the way to Europe (woo hoo!!!)
0 // days spent in a hotel in Europe (thanks to Airbnb!)
14 // days we spent in Europe (see the breakdown, city by city, on our itinerary!)
77 and a half // hours per week Bjorn was farming in June once school got out
2 // weeks spent together at Fort Knox in Kentucky for Bjorn’s army training
7 // states driven through in August
2 // nights spent camping
5 // number of historic mansions we toured near Nashville – in 1 weekend!
15-20 // average number of miles we walked per day in Europe
1 // riots witnessed – well, experienced – in Europe (that’s why we didn’t do the Eiffel Tower – read the story here!)
10 // on a scale of 1 to 10, how much we enjoy using Airbnb (here’s why you should too)
26 // battlefields, museums, and memorials visited in Europe in a 2-week span!
2 // new scarves I came home from Europe with
0 // people who believed I was actually French at local supermarkets in France (whoops – I chatter too much to my husband when we wait in line!)
510 // length in feet of the life-size Noah’s Ark we toured in Kentucky! We loved going to Ark Encounter!
1 // car accidents we were in (someone hit us and our truck had to go into the shop for a week while we were in Kentucky! It wasn’t our fault so his insurance paid 100% of the $3,000.) — poor Cliff (Clifford the Big Red Truck). 🙁
11 // live webinars I’ve attended this summer on photography, blogging, and more! (never stop learning, friends!)
4 // days I DIDN’T go to Starbucks during our 2 weeks in Kentucky (whoops…told you I love the coffeeshop vibe!)
2 // times we’ve seen a skunk IN OUR NEIGHBORHOOD and more specifically, NEAR OUR FRONT YARD. Yikes!
2 // content souls, happy to be at home but our hearts are full of great memories!
Now, it’s your turn! I’d love to hear some fun numbers from your summer!
