  1. What a great way to use numbers in a post. They did tell your story!

  2. Love how you used numbers to tell your story. I will need to remember this for next year.

    1. Thanks! Yes, it was fun deciding what to include!

  4. Sometimes numbers say a lot!

  5. What a great story idea. One I am sure to try. Thanks for sharing. Times have changed since the .20 hotdog.

  6. I love that the numbers start by counting up by 1's- very creative. The choice that you took bigger jumps with the numbers shows maybe how milestones become more spread out or the fact that we constantly are looking forward. Great structure!

    1. Yes, it does seem that I was busy and didn't have milestones as ofter! Thank you for commenting!

  7. This was very creative and took some time. Love this and want to try it, too. :)
