I still keep in touch with some of my (soon to be ex) in laws and I have to admit, that is one of the things I miss most about my marriage. My in laws are amazing. I couldn't have hoped for a nicer family to be welcomed into and I hate that I'm no longer a part of their family. It makes me sad.
I know it will get easier but a part of me will be sad this year around the holidays without going over to their house, enjoying watching the kids open their presents, laughing, playing board games and posing for photos.
It's been a hard day.
