Tomatoes of love …

You may be asking what do tomatoes and love have in common? HAHA, really there’s not much. However, as I was literally making this card (see below), my dad was outside working on his tomato plants. It got me thinking … he really loves his tomatoes.

He was just telling my sister and I about how long it’s been since he ate a big, juicy home-grown tomato right out of the garden. Ah, the small joys in life! šŸ˜‰

Anyway, back to my story …

My dad enjoys his produce from the garden while my mom really likes to work in her flower beds. She’s really got a talent for making things grow and I’m always amazed at the plants and flowers she gets to bloom all summer long!

So, with the many reasons why they are together, I like to think how farm life has become a similar interest … probably after watching many generations before them stick-it-out through ups and downs of life, they too have succeeded in their marriage, not to mention with the four [“cough,” awesome] children they’ve raised, too.

Today is their anniversary.

Aren’t they just too cute!?

Welp, hopefully my dad’s tomatoes will grow this year. Maybe he should get some help from my mom in the “green thumb” department. Or, maybe that’s one of the tricks to their happy marriage.

I’m sure I will have plenty of tomatoes to share with him this year. šŸ˜‰

Here’s the supplies I used to make the card:
