365 Days Ago

It was just a short 365 days ago that I made what was undoubtedly the best decision of my life thus far.  I became Mrs. Joshua Ryan Scurlock on June 26, 2010.  That wonderfully perfect day, which you can read all about HERE, has lead to an incredibly adventure filled year with an amazing man.

Just 365 days ago, I would never have believed that I would have traveled to Cozumel, Mexico, Newcastle, England, Edinburgh, Scotland, London, England, Dublin, Ireland, Ibiza, Spain, Rome, Italy, and Grenada, West Indies.  You would have thought it wasn't possible to do all of this, AND successfully accomplish year one of medical school.  But then again, my Joshua isn't just any regular ol' guy.
Three hundred and sixty five days ago, I was scared about moving to a foreign country.  I was afraid of the unknown and the unfamiliar, but now I know that there isn't anything that the two of us can't get through as long as we have each other's support and love.
It's been 365 days, and I grow to love you more and more everyday.  I love ALL of you, the good parts, the not so good parts, and the sometimes really annoying parts too. :)
In 365 days, I've had a crash course in what being a wife really is.  It's being your #1 biggest fan.  Being proud of your accomplishments and supportive of your failures.  Making comprises with each other because some things are in the best interest of US and not just ME.
Over the last 365 days, we've laughed together, cried together, been nervous and scared together, traveled together, worshiped together,  rejoiced together.  But mostly, we've just been together.
These past three hundred and sixty five days haven't always been easy.  It's hard to live so far away from all your family and friends.  It's challenging to live in a foreign country.  And it's difficult to have no one else to go to when things get tough.  But I think that's the beauty of it.  In the last 365 days, we've had no one to run to but each other. 
In three hundred and sixty five days, I've learned that grocery shopping, cooking, cleaning, doing laundry, and quizzing you on anatomy are some of the easiest ways to show my support for the journey that we are on together.  And I've learned that for the most part, I actually enjoy doing all of these things.

I wouldn't trade these first 365 as days as your wife for anything in the world.

I have no idea what the next three hundred and sixty five days holds for us.
Maybe these first 365 days were the easiest.
But I think that the next 365 days might be even better than the first.
Happy first year anniversary Joshua!  I love you 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.  And I can't wait for the next 365!
