Cheers to 4 Years {Giveaway}

Today is a special Tuesday because I'm celebrating this baby blog's 4th birthday! So, cheers to Radiating Sunshine's 4th Blogiversary! This blog has seen me throughout all of college and my first year in the adult world and in graduate school. Back in 2012, I wrote on this baby blog of mine 49 times very irregularly. I didn't really know what I wanted from the blog community (and sometimes I still don't know). Well, 4 years later I double what I posted my first year as a blogger and have met so many amazing blog friends. So, today I'm going to share with you all some of my biggest life and blog accomplishments and hopefully take you down a trip down a sunny memory lane.
While blogging... I met this guy! Who for awhile I only referred to as J on the blog!
My first post, Closure to Freshmen Year: My Year in a Nutshell truly makes me giggle at my lack of blog etiquette. But, it is still the beginning of my blog journey and should be remembered (and cherished).
I traveled to Austria and fell in love with Europe! I documented everything on this blog of mine :) 
My most popular post: Fall 2013 Programming Ideas ... as a Student Affairs practitioner this made me smile thinking that my most popular post has hopefully helped others with their programming. It also makes me cringe on how non-inclusive it is! But, that is the joy of learning and growing as a professional!
I supervised my first staff as a Residence Director and attended my first professional conference!
My least most popular post: finals  ... not surprised by this one it is literally like 5 sentences long, but clearly I just needed to post something for that week!
I went to Alaska with my family on our last vacation for quite sometime now!
The highest viewed Weekend Recap, came from 1/20/14 and I discussed bowling, dinner out, and bingo! During my Junior year of college I was an extreme blogger and I spent so much of my time reading, writing, and expanding my blog! My life has definitely gotten way busier and I can't blog as much as I would like, but maybe one day I'll get back to it!

Other major highlights, I started advertising on Radiating Sunshine, I began doing product reviews, and gave Radiating Sunshine a huge facelift with some fancy new graphics. I still have a lot of hopes and dreams for this little blog of mine and hopefully you all will continue to support me! I also hit 200 GFC followers! Hopefully, I can hit 250 by the next blogiversary!

Because I love you all so much and also will really miss the Starbucks being open on campus (summer hours) I am doing a fun and energizing giveaway today:
