Merry Christmas and Some Travel Photos

Another year is dwindling down, and I find that I have mixed feelings about this past year. 

Everyone I love is safe and healthy, so that in itself makes 2010 a great year. 

But lots of changes happened and not all were great, and some were much greater than I could have ever imagined. All in all, on the 25th day of December, mere days from the final day of 2010, I find that I feel blessed in my life — and that says a lot. 

All endings led to new beginnings, and all changes led to new opportunities.  Friendships lost were replaced with true friendships, and new friendships blossomed into what will most likely be lifelong friendships. I can’t complain. 

Overall, I feel lucky and you can see from my blog that I continued to eat well this year.

I wonder how 2010 was for all of you.

So, for 2011 — may all of you find contentment and peace within yourselves — and above all else, true love and good health.  With these few things secured, it would be impossible for 2011 to be anything but the best year of your life, thus far.

I leave you with some additional photos of food from all over the globe that I took during my travels this year.  Perhaps it will compel you to plan to see much of the world in the coming year as there’s nothing quite like visiting other countries and experiencing new things in life! I’m about “traveled out” now and hope to stay on US soil a lot more in 2011. Merry Christmas, everyone — and thank you for reading San Francisco Food.  As always, it’s much appreciated.
