Now that the holiday hangover has finally worn off, it feels nice to be back in action with a new year and clean slate. I spent the holidays with my family and friends down in San Diego celebrating any and all occasions that call for excessive eating and drinking (Christmas, Christmas Eve, Christmas Eve Eve, Christmas Eve Eve Eve, etc.). I couldn't be more excited to reintroduce the concept of "moderation" back into my life after it was thrown out the window to make room for a gluttonous amount of holiday treats and booze. Despite the all-around over-indulgence, I always appreciate time spent in my beloved hometown.
Also—in other San Diego-related news—a major kitchen update recently wrapped over at this place and the results are pretty dang stunning. What used to be a cramped galley kitchen has become an opened-up culinary oasis. No longer is one forced to sacrifice Game of Thrones minutes to make a snack! Good design changes lives, people. I'm telling you.
All in all, I have to say that I'm pretty stoked for 2016. 2015 was just starting to get cool so I'm excited to carry that momentum into the new year (and I'll do my best to keep you posted here along the way). Wishing you all a happy and healthy start to the new year!
