2015: My Year by Numbers

Well it's officially the last day of 2015!

I am seriously in awe at how quickly this year went by.  It feels like just yesterday I was saying goodbye to 2014 and hello to 2015.  And if I remember correctly I was 100% ready to say goodbye to  2014.  But I find myself a little sad to be saying goodbye to 2015.  I had a fantastic 2015 y'all.  I traveled more than I have ever traveled, I got a new job and fell completely in love with it, I blogged every single month, and I learned a lot about myself.  With 2016 just hours away I want to take a minute to look back on 2015.  I never want to forget the fantastic year I had.

To do that I thought it would begun to look at 2015 by numbers.  I've seen a few bloggers do this and it looks so fun.

So without further ado I give you:



{7} The number of countries I visited in 2015.  Obviously my favorite things from 2015 was going to Europe!  This really was the trip of a lifetime and we had the best time imaginable.  It has opened up a love for traveling that I know will stay with me for the rest of my life.  I cannot wait to start planning my next big trip across the pond.  Which will happen in 2017!










{15} The number of cities I visited in 2015.  

{600}  The number of Instagram pictures I posted in 2015.



{12,488} The number of total likes on those 600 Instagram posts

{2} The number of weddings I was in/attended this year. This was a big year for two of my best friends in the entire world.  I was so glad to be included in their special days!

Jordan married Brain in Cleveland, Ohio in October.


And Kelly married Matt in December.  This wedding was especially special because it was the first time since 2009 my amazing group of friends from my Disney College Program have all been together since our program.  We had an absolute blast! :) 



{155} The number of blog posts I wrote in 2015.  One of my goals from 2015 was to blog more.  And boy did I fulfill that goal!  I am so glad I have stuck with this wonderful little hobby of mine.  I have met some amazing fellow bloggers and have really grown as a blogger myself this year.


{1,079} The number of views my most popular blog post received.


{1} The number of new jobs I got.  Another goal of 2015 accomplished!  As you know I was completely miserable at my first school. And the first part of 2015 reflected that.  But the second part had been a complete 180.  Being in a job you love makes everything else in your life that much better.  So if you're hating your job take my advice and do something about it!  It will make your year that much better!

{57} The number of new friends on Facebook I made.

(1,000,000} The number of times my heart swelled when my best friend had her sweet baby Lacey.  Yet another HUGE highlight of 2015.  I am totally obsessed with this little angel and have loved getting to see her grow up.


{5,145} The number of miles I drove across Texas.  There is a love hate relationship with this number.  Love living in the same state as my parents but hate having to drive 735 miles to see them.  You'd think the flight prices from Houston to El Paso would be more reasonable but they're not!  I could drive across Texas in my sleep I know the drive so well.

{2} The number of my favorite purchases of the year.  My Canon and my iMac, hands down.  These two items are some of my prized possessions.


{7,137} The number of pictures I've taken on my Canon camera.  I have loved having a camera to document so many great experiences this year.  It's really helped me step up my blog game.  It has turned into a really fun hobby and I can't wait to use it to photograph all the new places I plan to visit in 2016.








{4} The number of dates I went on in 2015.  This is by far my biggest disappointment of 2015.   I'm really hoping this changes in 2016.  Like REALLY.

{1, again}  The number of new fur babies that joined my little family.  Brady, you have been a joy and a terror all at the same time.  You can be sweet and cuddle and adorable one minute and a trouble making little turd the next.  And I wouldn't have it any other way.  Now if we can just get your sister to love you more than hate you.



{40} The number of books I read.  This number is actually a guess.  It was one of my goals in 2015 to read 65, but I didn't actually come up with a way to track how many I actually read.  in 2016 I WILL keep track so the number is accurate next year!

{3} The number of new iPhones I had to get this year because I kept dropping them.

******

2015, you were amazing.  I had a great time with you and now it's time to say goodbye.  I'm sorry to see you go but so excited to see what 2016 has in store.  Thank you for a fantastic 365 days.  Here's hoping the next 365 are just as amazing! :)

  1. So many fun trips this year and so many weddings too! I loved reading about your travels so much this year! That's crazy how many miles you drove across Texas! It's just crazy how big our state is! I hope that you have a great New Years and hopefully 2016 will bring just as much excitement as 2015 did!

  2. This is such a cute idea to reflect upon everything that happened this year! Sounds like you have had an amazing year, especially with all of your travels around Europe! I am very jealous of you canon camera and I'm right with you with the dropped phones and far too few dates. I hope you have a great new year!
