Last week, Derick Dillard celebrated his 29th birthday.
It's been a rough year for Jill Duggar's husband, who was recently fired by TLC, thus leaving his family without its sole source of income.
(Jill departed the show alongside her husband, which means for the first time in their marriage, there are no reality TV checks pouring in.)
But if there's an upside to their situation, it's that the Dillards have a bit more freedom these days now that they're no longer appearing on Counting On.
For the most part, that freedom has been squandered on Derick's social media tirades, but it seems Jill is now enjoying her time away from the spotlight in a much less destructive way.
On Friday, she marked the occasion of Derick's birhday by posting a photo that might seem wholly unremarkable at first glance:
"Happy birthday sweetie," Jill captioned the pic.
"I am so grateful to God for you! I pray that in this next year (last one in your 20’s!) you will draw closer to God every day! Thank you for leading our family and caring for each of us so well! You’re the best! I love you!!"
If you're a longtime fan of the Duggar clan, then we probably don't have to tell you what detail fans zeroed in on here.
Yes, Jill's skirt is considerably shorter than the ones she and her sisters wore while they were growing up under Jim Bob's roof.
Many of her followers were stunned by Jill's "sexy" appearance, and they effusively praised the mother of two for showing a hint of knee.
“These Duggars are getting rebellious," wrote one fan.
“Mini skirt! Looks nice," commented another.
“Love those heels Jill," remarked a third.
Yes, for the second time in a month, Jill's shoes were also a subject of discussion.
Generally, the Duggar rules for "modest attire" require women to wear conservative flats, but like her other married sisters, Jill has pretty much thrown the rule book in the trash at this point.
Of course, as always, some of the praise for Jill's very mild act of defiance had a bit of a sarcastic tone:
“Dress is above the kneeeeeee ALERT THE PRESS,” wrote one follower, while another quipped, “Whoo knees.”
Yes, it may not seem like much for those of us who didn't grow up under the stern and watchful eye of Jim Bob.
But for Jill, this is as rebellious as it gets.
