I rarely ever post public declarations of affection. But each day of the four years since I married this womanβ€”and of the three years we dated before thatβ€”I have fallen more and more in love with her. I couldn’t have conjured a more wonderful companion in my wildest dreams. My imagination isn’t strong enough to dream so big. And yet, this is my incredible reality.

These two may be a handful, but they sure bring color and purpose into my life. The next few (quiet) months simply won’t be the same without them. 😒

Got to bike a bit alongside this gorgeous Tel Aviv beach today πŸš΄πŸ½β€β™‚οΈπŸ

I guess it's all a little more official now πŸ€·πŸ½β€β™‚οΈ

The first three horsemen of the apocalypse have come to Armageddon. The fourth one is taking the picture.

I’m finally getting around to reading Steven Pinker’s _The Language Instinct_β€”it’s been on my β€œto-read” for way too long. So far, I’ve found his unquestioning support of Chomsky’s UG a bit annoying and his brutal takedown of Whorfianism refreshing.

Found out today that a few acceptance/rejection letters from the PhD programs I applied to have just started going out. And now I can't think about anything else. Notification taps from my Apple Watch have become anxiety-inducing. Thanks, thegradcafe.com. 🀞🏽😟

Gave a workshop about teaching and learning vocabulary to a group of _Masa Israel Teaching Fellows_ near Tel Aviv. Had some great comments, questions, and general engagement, both during and after the workshops. Thanks for coming, everyone!
