Deja Vu is My Current View

During the month of October last year, I had a lot going on:

I finally published my novel, Acting On Her Behalf, after 16 years.

I made the switch from Blogger to WordPress after 10 months of blogging. (That’s my referral link for how to DIY.)

My friends, Dino and Margaret from Detroit, celebrated their wedding anniversary in New Orleans with me and Hubby.

The Deuce needed 2 Halloween costumes: 1 for his school’s theme and 1 for trick-or-treating in our subdivision.

Let’s fast forward to October 2014…
