My father was constantly taking business trips throughout my growing up years. He would always send me postcards (or letters on the hotel letterhead, like this one) while he was away. I found this one last week while hunting for something. (God bless mommies who squirrel away and save these wonderful memories for their kids!) There would always be little gifts upon his return home ... gifts bought at the hotel gift shop or the airport store . Sadly, I have no idea what became of the ring that accompanied this charming note from my dad, or even what it was. But I love that I was his tomato! :)
So in this week leading up to Valentine's Day, remember your tomato and let them know how dear they are to you!
