You know your wife has accepted your GF as a member of the family when she buys you materials to engrave as a birthday gift.
When I first read this, I thought that you were saying “you really know that your Glowforge has been accepted as a member of the family”
Did we miss your birthday? Happy birthday!
She sounds very understanding of the maker psyche!
Precious words. Glad your family has welcomed your Glowforge with beautiful gifts!
