Courtney Love married Kurt Cobain 28 years ago yesterday (February 24), and she marked the anniversary with a touching post to Instagram.

Love shared a photo of her and Cobain along with the following caption: “8 years ago, we got married in Honolulu on Waikiki beach. Tonight spoke to sponsor, I lit some candles, chanted, diamoku, walked my dog, went to sushi with my best friend, the closest I have to another one. 28 years ago I recall feeling deeply delighted, dizzy, so in love and knowing how lucky I was. This man was an angel. I thank him for looking out for me. Many parts of the last 28 years have been torturous, chaotic and uphill. And in public? That is the darkest sh-t imaginable. It almost tapped my resilience. Almost. But between Kurt’s strange, amazing divinity and the honor of a few true friends, the gift of desperation and sobriety, of a Higher power and of love and of empathy, I’m here now. It’ll be ok. F-ck, I see him on the shore. Rocking in the free world. My husband.”
