The following is the rememberance I shared with everyone at Alex's Celebration of Life service (about his life in Denver) on October 8th, 2015.

Last week I attended one of my favorite conferences: The Monktoberfest: the developer conference where social meets technology. This was the fifth year and I've attended all five. Hats off to my friends, the organizers, for keeping it consistently great.
It had been a while since Rachel and I visited Breckenridge. Since we were in Maine for the winter we didn't spend any time in the mountains (of Colorado) skiing.
So, when we had a chance to take a long weekend up to Breck and do some hiking we took it! Our friends brought us on an awesome hike up to Mohawk Lake. The mining history and natural beauty in Summit County never gets old.

This summer we came back to visit Maine with Rachel's family. We spent time at a very nice house (big and usually for weddings) in Harpswell, spent a lot of timing driving around to nearby Brunswick, Bath, and Freeport.
And then Rachel and I spent an extra week, just us, visiting with friends down in Portland.

Rachel and I packed up and spent six months in Portland, Maine this past fall and winter. In case you missed it: we had two opportunities to see a lot of the country we hadn't before (driving out east and driving back home). We also made the most of a very snowy winter and kept running, skiing, and hiking.
This winter, in Maine, we got about as much snow as Boston did. This led to plenty of shoveling, consecutive days spent only indoors, and some fun pictures around town.

Since we spent all fall and all winter in Portland, Maine, I came to learn how "a little weather" should never stop me from getting outside and being active.
We had a great time getting to know a new city and running a couple minutes a few times a week was one of the best ways to cover a lot of ground, intimately. Check out my photos from running around Portland over at Exposure.

When looking back on the past year I've realized what a fun, crazy, busy and privileged life I lead in 2014. I consider myself very lucky to have the experiences and opportunities I've had: I started working for GitHub, Rachel and I enjoyed some great trips together, and we temporarily moved across the country from Denver to Portland, Maine...
Rachel's family offered to take everyone to Cancún for Thanksgiving. Check out some photos from our beach vacation in Mexico over at Exposure.
