I don't have many single girlfriends, but I do treasure the ones I do have. Actually, now that I think about it, I really only have one... and she's become somewhat of a bestie these last few months.
Coincidentally, she is also in the middle of a break up... cause that's what besties do, they get married together, pregnant together ~okay we didn't meet until our girls were three and she's never been married, so we skipped right to they~ break up together, you know, so no one feels left out...
We were texting the other night. Her sister has some women's empowerment book and she was sending me quotes because I was sulking. Little did she know, it was a purposeful sulk and I was not about to come out of it!

That's what I call perspective! I'm still giggling!
