  1. Divorce selfies? Really?....Really?
    That is so weird, but I guess a lot of people think I'm weird too, so what can I say ;) :p

  2. Some great links that I will definitely check out. I love learning of new blogs and articles from others, thanks for sharing! Happy Friday - hope you enjoy the sunshine!

  3. Haha! I guess these couples all decided they were better off as friends and wanted to have a memory from the day the separation was finalized. This is not something I would have wanted to do after my divorce.

  4. I love RBG! Thank you for sharing that video! Happy Friday and Happy weekend!

  5. Me too! She's a classy woman. Hope you have a lovely weekend, Beth!

  6. So excited to kick back this weekend too :) Can't wait to check some of these links out!

    Love that quote under the main photo. Too sweet. And divorce selfies? Interesting!

    Awww...only 18 summers with a kid! It puts it in perspective.


  8. So many people I know have been though horrible divorces so to see people get divorced and still be connected is amazing. And the 18 summers thing....all the feels. Especially after celebrating Anthonys 12th on Sunday! PS. When you are in the storm that is Anxiety, I will be right there with you! xoxo

  9. The divorce selfie is interesting.... that is the last thing I would have wanted to do the day I got divorced!!

  10. Hope you have a great weekend, Rachel!

  11. I know! 18 summers seems like nothing! Hope you have a great weekend, Lauren. :)

  12. Yes, I guess in order to qualify for a divorce selfie, you'd have to have separated from your partner on amicable terms and so many (myself included) have not. And thank you lady! It's quite a storm. :)

  13. Right?!? Glad I'm not the only one who feels that way. ;)

  14. Those wedding pics are pretty cool :)

    I really loved the "black mirror" project. Really incredible! Thanks for sharing these links! They are awesome!

  16. So did I! Hope you have a great weekend!

  17. Interesting links! The stillbirth one truly is an unspoken thing. Even moreso than infertility and miscarriage, I think. And who knew about divorce selfies? That's unique
