{ Friday Foto Friends #52 - One Year Linky Anniversary }

Well, we made it!
Today we celebrate a year of having this little link-up every Friday.  I'm so happy about our ability to stick-to-it so we would keep this up for an entire year.  I'm hoping this will continue to grow and we'll meet up with more and more new visitors. If you get a chance, share it with your friends on Facebook.  

I actually started posting Friday Fotos more than a year ago.  I did that for several months before I added the link-up.  Out of curiosity I went back and found my very first photo that I shared on our first linky and here it is......

I never tire of the gorgeous colors of that maple tree in our back yard and the fluorescent  colors it turns to in the fall.  

This first pic for this week was taken at Panther Creek State Park.  Our kiddos camped there last weekend and we visited them for a while on Saturday.  It's an absolutely gorgeous campground on Cherokee Lake.  This is a view from the top overlook.....

These pics were taken in our neighborhood.....

HOPE you all enjoy visiting others who link up as much as I do. It's such a pleasure meeting people from all over the country and other parts of the world because of the power of the Internet.   

For everybody who links up or leaves a comment today, you'll get a chance to win my little give-a-way. I've gathered a few things while out and about that I think somebody will enjoy for this season of fall and the winner will be announced on Monday!

Happy weekend, Everybody!
