Happy Valentine's

A year ago, Joyce and I went to see Yo La Tengo right before Valentine's Day. I like Yo La Tengo and was excited about the show, but it ended up being memorable for other reasons.

It was on the next day, the day after the show, that Joyce took a pregnancy test and found out that we were having a baby. But on the night of the show we both somehow magically knew already. It was extremely icy and slippery in the parking lot outside, and I just remember holding each other's hand really tight to make sure she didn't fall. It is one of my favorite memories. Yo La played a really lovey dovey set and everything was alright.

It has been an amazing year and our boy Sinjin is now 4 months old. He and Joyce fill my heart with pride and love. Happy Valentine's Day everybody!
