Dear Husband

You are the most amazing person I have ever met in my life. I can’t believe how lucky I am. It’s been six years and I know we have our tough moments, but wow. My life has become so enriched by your presence. The kids are lovely, kind people and I am thrilled that they consider me a friend. But you. I could never, ever, ever, have joined a stepfamily if it weren’t for you. You are my partner. My friend. We both have pasts we bring to this marriage. And I forgive you yours just like you forgave me mine. (Of course my ex-boyfriends don’t call the house.) Still. Even with the annoying or difficult parts, I would still do it again. Call me crazy.

Love you,
