Doctor Decade.

'Member when we were dating and we used to talk about our love of southern names and southern homes with columns and front porches, and sweet tea and Coke in a bottle?


'Member when we got first married and dreamed that one day we'd have children with family (read: southern!) names, and live in a house with a wide front porch and columns, and drink Coke in a bottle while sitting in a rocking chair, watching those southern children playing in the yard?

'Member how we did just that? Just this past weekend?

Fifty years from now, I pray we're still on our front porch...watching our children play in the yard. With our grandchildren. And plenty of Coke in a bottle.

Ten years is such an accomplishment!

How blessed you are to have each other, and your gorgeous girls, and your beautiful home!

And Amen to Coke in a bottle! (Where on earth did you find it? A real glass bottle?! Haven't had one of those in years!)

Happy anniversary, Lula and Scott! Here's to many more decades, and watching babies play on the lawn!

(All you need is some peacocks and mint juleps, and you'll be set!)

Love it.

Love you.

I've got an ice-cold "Co-Cola" right here beside me.

Alas, the bottle is plastic.

But, still. I'm raising my Coke to toast y'all! Congrats on 10 years of wedded bliss together! Here's to many, many more!

This made me cry. Not because your dreams are my dreams, but because I'm looking for someone to dream with. Congratulations, lovely Lula, and to your lucky spouse, too. Many more.
