Tomato Hearts 2 by dosankodebbie

This Tomato Valentine etegami was inspired by “Love is not blind,” a poem by Edna St.Vincent Millay (1892-1950), which refers to romantic love. But I think it applies just as well to every kind of real love. Family love. Friendship love. God’s love. We are not blind to our loved one’s faults, but we love anyway, the same way we ourselves are loved.
