Creative Thursday Link Party No. 26

Happy October!
We finally made it!
I am so ready for this stinkin' heat to LEAVE California!  How about you?  How's the weather in your neck of the woods?

Wanna know a secret?

Saturday is my one year Blog Anniversary.
I can't believe it's going to be here so fast, the time has flown by.  I will be kicking off the Anniversary celebration on Friday with FREE STUFF! So be sure to stop back by and check it out.  I'll have several days of giveaways.  

You guys outdid yourselves last week with the biggest link party yet!  We had 171 shared posts last week.  WooHoo!  Give yourselves a pat on the back.  Thank you SO much for your new and continued friendships. I KNOW I have the bestest group of blogging buddies out there!

 Party runs through Monday night each week so link up as many times as you like.
