When a mutual friend introduced us a few summers ago, we were determined to make the best of what felt like one of the worst times of our lives. We felt isolated, overwhelmed, and anxious about all the uncertainty we faced. But the moment we connected, we realized that we were no longer going through our divorces alone. Though we had friends and family supporting us, we were acutely aware of how meaningful it was to know someone who reflected our divorce experience. We had the same set of worries over our children, the custody schedule, work, and our finances. We had similar stressors: We were both single moms; we were navigating disagreements with our exes; and we had both moved out of the marital home to set up house elsewhere. We started meeting for weekly “walk and talks,” powering through our neighborhood, sweating out our stress as we discussed everything from our exes, our kids, and living on our own to our hopes for the future. We were sounding boards for each other and shared what we were learning about the divorce process. We always managed to have a few laughs along the way. This book grew out of those walk and talks.
