The Holidays in SF
I moved to San Francisco (Nob Hill/Russian hill border) in August and am absolutely loving city life! The gym is a half mile away, there is a natural foods grocery store 4 blocks away, and several restaurants on every street. I get to walk everywhere (yes, especially to my car since we usually have to park a few blocks away!) and those hills are really a great way to get a quick workout done in the middle of the day.
Most days I am cooped up inside the apartment on my computer all day, so it's great to head out in the evenings to meet friends for happy hour or dinner, just a short walk or Muni ride away. Getting all bundled up to brave the crisp city air and seeing the Christmas lights in the Bay windows really makes it feel so festive!
Another great thing about the city is the food! You can find basically ANY kind of food you can imagine right around the corner. Saturday night Chris and I were feeling cold, hungry, and tired from a long walk downtown and window shopping. So we decided to get Indian food delivered from a place down the street called Darbar. Best decision ever! The chicken Tikka Masala and Lamb Saag were SO good, and they arrived at our door exactly 18 minutes after I hung up the phone with them. Couldn't get any better than that!
