Happily Divorced

This photo was taken the very day that I called the court-house and found out that our divorce was final last Friday. We already had plans to go to dinner with friends, just because one of them was in town and wanted to get some people together. It turned into a divorce celebration dinner, and when I jokingly asked the server if they provided free dessert for an occasion like a divorce, she was amazed that we were together, celebrating. Turned out we had to pay for dessert after all, but it was a lovely evening of closure.

I have to admit that after I got off the phone with the courthouse, I shed a few tears. It was officially the end of a successful marriage, yet the continuation of a relatively healthy and happy family with two parents and five kids that care fiercely about one another and hopefully always will.
