3 is a great number

I can’t believe it’s been 3 years already! Pretty sure I told fellow bloggers at the Minnesota Blogger’s Conference it’d only been 2. Instead of doing one of those “What I Learned After 3 Years of Blogging” post, I’ve decided to share why 3 is a great number.

A 5K (3.1 miles) is the perfect run distance; it’s long enough to get your heart rate going and burn some calories, but short enough that you can run it without exhaustive training. Like the Esprit de She I did this summer.

3 Years Old

The age when kids are usually potty trained and “officially” invited to have sleepovers at our house. (At which point Auntie Em and Uncle Nolan let you do/eat whatever you want, including sit on the counters and eat cake batter.)

Meals in a Day

But let’s all be honest, it’s usually it’s like 6 mini-meals in a day.


3 strikes in bowling = turkey, it’s still only happened once. What would happen if you got a turkey in frames 1-2-3, 5-6-7, and 9-10-10?

It’s common knowledge to group items in three, like our where we met, married, and live map pictures in our hallway.
