Before I begin, I have to acknowledge today’s date is April 16, 2023, yet my wife’s birthday is April 15! So apologies are in order for being a tad late, though there have been many valid reasons and I actually have been working on this for awhile now. I’ve tried to do some unique things, or give unique gifts, etc., to make Gretchen’s birthday a little cooler than my health has permitted most of the year. One thing I’ve often done in the past was make her birthday cards, but this time I decided to make a slide show that I hope will both mean something and will represent moments in time that have been special for her or us, etc., since we first met some time ago. Bearing in mind I have over 50,000 digital photos and I wanted to keep this slide show to maybe 20, THAT has been the time-consuming aspect of the project (though fun). As I’m unable to go through that many photos, I feel pretty good about what I’ve compiled, and I hope Gretchen appreciates seeing these moments again. Not only some good memories for her/us, but also possibly a couple of interesting surprises for anyone who may see this.
I could write endlessly about Gretchen, but that’s the problem — once I’d start, I might not resurface for a week, so aside from this intro — and what we’ve exchanged, said and done at home — I’m just going to launch into this slide show, meant to be in her honor.
One thought on “Happy Birthday to my Incredible Wife, Gretchen!”
Happy belated birthday!!
I’ve always loved the two of you together!
