2011 in review and looking forward...

Wow...2011 was a blur! But a blur of adventures, challenges and memories....ups and downs.

Since this is a food blog and I try to stick mostly to the topic, most folks don't know that I am a bit of a news junkie. Sometimes I wish I could pay less attention to things as 2011 was a bit of an emotional roller coaster:
- The economy...
- The debt ceiling crisis...
- The Euro zone crisis...
- The devastating earthquake and tsunami in Japan...and then the subsequent nuclear power plant problems...
- Bin Ladin killed...
- Arab spring...
- Riots in London...
- the tragic shootings in Arizona...
- the tragic shootings in Norway...
- the Occupy movements...

....and that is far from being a complete list.

Each new year, we reflect on the year behind us and become hopeful for the year ahead....we hope for personal successes, jobs, love, good health. We hope for peace and prosperity for all. There's a lot going on in the world right now. Take notice and do your part to help move things in a positive direction.

It's so hard to watch the news and not get depressed. But, it also makes me remember to be so grateful for all of life's blessings.
