This weekend I had a much-needed break from the routine. The semester finally ended last week so I’m untethered by students’ intellectual and emotional needs. For a week.
Anyway, I made a 4.5 hour drive up to Minneapolis to visit Jenna and Arjun and their baby girl Sofie. Jenna is my best friend from college and Sofie is my god-daughter! We have been each other’s emotional touchstones over the years, and each visit usually results in lots of talking, some reality TV, and plenty of relaxation. We’re both in a busy and somewhat relentless period of our lives, so we always have lots to talk about. I thought I’d just post a couple of unbelievably cute pictures of me and Sofie. Maybe some other time I’ll write a post about being a god-father, but I’ve only been one for less than a year so there’s not much to write about. All I can say is she is literally the cutest little girl I’ve ever seen and I’m so glad to be pseudo-related to her so I get to watch her grow up.
