I love Will’s Note to Angelique!

Keep reading to see the full Love Note!

My dearest wife, 

It is a year now that I have the honour of calling you that, and the wonder of it hasn’t faded; nor will it ever. So much has passed in a year; and I would not trade a moment of it for the world. 

Never for a second did I believe such a life as I have with you – as you have given me, with your kindness, courage, and belief – could be for me. And yet, here I am living the dream I dared not dream so very long ago. With you, and our beautiful daughter, in our home, in this new world we have made our own. 

We began this marriage under pretence, but know, even then, it was real to me. When I saw you before that chapel in Oban, when we made our vows, I meant them, even then. You are the realest thing I have ever known, and I hope that not once since we met again on the deck of that ship, have you doubted the depth of my devotion and love for you. 

I do not say it often enough, how grateful I am for you, my love. How grateful I am for our life, for this peace you have brought me. I cannot wait to make you mine again, before our family and friends this time. 

I can tarry no longer this morning, I am already expected at the docks. But know, I did not forget this day, nor shall I ever, for it made you my wife. 

Until this evening my love, 

Your husband
