Cheers to Three Years

Happy Birthday to The Shore Life According to M!  Today this little blog of mine turns three.  It was three years ago that I sat in my kitchen during winter break of my freshman year chatting with my mom about how college doesn't allow for my creative juices to flow.  This conversation and some other things were what sparked me to create my own blog.  To say that blogging has been flawlessly easy over the past few years would be telling y'all a lie. Initially, I had no idea what I was doing, what I should or shouldn't post, or what my brand would be.  However, here I am three years later still not sure of things most of the time, but yet I continue to write and become more passionate about it with everyday that passes.  My posting consistency has been quite the roller coaster, but somehow I still manage to have people who enjoy reading.  

I wanted to share a quick thank you to anyone and everyone who reads or has read my blog.  Thank you for reading, commenting, and sharing my posts.  Thank you to my blogging friends who inspire me continuously to be a better blogger.  Thank you all for reading my ramblings and joining me on the crazy adventures of life. 

Over the course of the past three years, I have learned a lot about blogging. I am definitely not the expert blogger and still have lot to learn. I do know one thing. It has been a great experience for me. Blogging has consistently provided me with an outlet to relieve stress since spring semester of freshman year of college.  Though college has brought a lot of changes, blogging has stayed consistent for me.  I'm looking forward to where 2016 will bring me in the world of blogging. I"m hoping to post more consistently, participate in more link ups, host a link up, and be more engaging on social media. 
To celebrate I made double vanilla cupcakes with a recipe brought to you by Geogetown Cupcake.  The recipe I used definitely wasn't perfect, but I'll be sharing it with y'all in the near future!  The cupcakes are dense and very sweet. The perfect treat for a cold winter afternoon!

Thanks for all of your support over the years!
