What. A Year. We made it, folks. It’s time to shut the door and let this year live only in the history books. Breaking down the year in numbers is a fun way to do this and I did it for the first time in 2016 (2016 In Review), continued the tradition in 2017 (2017 In Review) and in 2018 (2018 In Review). 2019 In Numbers was probably my favorite yet, because it included so many milestones, and truthfully because I had nooooo clue what 2020 would be. Did any of us? Despite 2020 feeling like a disaster in so many ways, I broke it all down in 2020 In Numbers.
Last year I felt so much promise for the upcoming year when I did my 2021 In Numbers, and while this year certainly wasn’t what I had hoped for, I look back and still see so much joy. Let’s break it down shall we?
2022 In Numbers
91 – Number of blog posts this year. Admittedly, I scaled back quite a bit in posts this year comparatively to other years, but I do miss this space and I hope to dedicate more time here in 2023.
84 – Instagram reels created. Who would have ever thought I’d be making videos for the internet? Life is weird!
68 – Hours of running on my Peloton Tread
17 – Hours of walking on my Peloton Tread
21 – Hours of cycling on our Peloton. As you can see, our Tread took a priority this year!
239 – Total number of days I did a Peloton workout this year and I’m so proud of that!
4 – Places visited. We started the year in Las Vegas celebrating my dad’s birthday, made a couple visits to Charlotte to see dear friends, spent a weekend in Nag’s Head, NC and enjoyed two weeks in Kenya this fall.
2 – We also took two day trips including Mount Vernon and Annapolis.
1 – Number of elephants rescued. Still totally in awe of this Kenyan experience!

3 – Months we subscribed to Rose’s Luxury Dinner Club. Dang – I still dream about it!
Unquantifiable items included how hard I laughed or how hard I cried, times I spent wondering how much colder it might *actually* get in DC, trips to see my parents, dog kisses, date nights to try new restaurants and looking around trying to see the good.
If I’m being honest, 2022 was one of my hardest years yet, but when I look back at photos what is see is simple: Joy.
May 2023 be the year we never knew we needed. Cheers, everyone!
