2014 was once again a year of tremendous transition, maybe the biggest of my entire life. I mean, are there any decisions more life-altering than getting married? Looking back on 2014 I’ve realized that I have been taking less pictures and shooting/editing less (personal) videos. Part of that is the insane stack of books I’ve read over the past year and the countless hours devoted to class. But that has not stopped me from enjoying friends, celebrating new marriage, and creating memories on a weekly basis. Life is settling (hopefully) into more of a rhythm, less transition, and for the first time in a long time I have a pretty good idea of what the new year will look like before it begins. And that’s actually something I am excited about. Less change means more opportunity to grow deeper roots and invest on a more consistent basis with the people in Denver. A growing theme in my life and these year-in-review posts is that I always remember the people in my life before anything else. Whether it is the biggest powder day, the time we dressed like idiots and rode in a bike parade, or another perfect 85 degree Wash Park BBQ, I can’t help but think about who was there. The pictures in this blog are not solo shots or the ever-popular “selfie,” it is people who have loved me, I have suffered alongside, I have rejoiced alongside, and they are the most important part of my story. In 2014 I was once again most thankful for friends and family and the stories we wrote together.
The moments from 2014 that I will remember the most are:

I write this from Heritage coffee/bike shop in Chicago right now. We are just a few hours away from welcoming 2015 in my sister’s apartment transformed into the Grand Budapest Hotel. Look for many Wes Anderson style instagrams coming soon…
