Netflix has just released season 3 of the hit series Grace and Frankie, which chronicles the unlikely friendship of Grace Hanson and Frankie Bernstein, portrayed by the hilariously iconic Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin. The pair bond over a shared personal crisis and become the Odd Couple of our generation.

Here is Valley’s definitive list of 7 times Frankie Bergstein was #Goals.
When she created the ultimate post-breakup concoction of Jameson and Ben & Jerry’s. *Cry into your bowl responsibly.
When she knew that the only way to cheer herself up would be to express herself through Tibetan throat singing.
When she channeled her anger and frustration into art by smearing her late-night snacks onto her canvas.
When she told her ex-husband, Sol, to cut the crap and stop acting like everything is normal when it’s not.
When she ventured into the world of flirting and then called it out for the awkward catastrophe that it is
When she was the ultimate cheerleader for her best friend’s sex life.
And finally, when she had the courage to face her fears and journey into her future while still managing to find the joy in every little moment.
