If you like animals, you're going to love this report from our first trip to Safari West, a 400-acre wild animal preserve in California's famed wine country.

Wow. Was it just yesterday, or nearly a lifetime ago?
Today is our 13th wedding anniversary. Sometimes, when thinking back to that day, I feel like it was just last week, while at other times, it's been so long that I don't even know who those two you...

When we were waiting at the airport for our delayed flight, I played $20 in slots. Alan was like, "do you know how much Candy Crush that could have gotten you?"

Eating, drinking, reading, writing, traveling ... dreaming. | Find me at http://www.casacaudill.com
Introduction

I'm Becky, part of a small family made up of myself, my husband of 12+ years Alan, and our 15 year old Himalayan, Dakota. We’ve lived in Oakland, CA, for the past ten years, currently as apartment dwellers in the Grand Lake neighborhood after selling our 1910 craftsman bungalow in the city’s Temescal district last year.

Like many couples in the Bay Area, we both work in tech: he’s a software architect, and I do executive communications for one of the world’s largest tech companies. Before you think we might be like all those tech people you’ve read about on Gawker, let me assure you that we are absolutely not like that at all. In fact, the stereotypical tech worker is a common topic of conversation at our dinner table, and most of it not positive.

When people ask what our hobbies are, we often wonder if eating and drinking qualifies, since we’re quite adept at both. I fancy myself a pretty decent cook and Alan is an excellent sous chef and dishwasher. I post a lot of pictures of our dinners to Instagram (yes, I’m one of those people). Wine is our drink of choice – in fact, we’re the reigning champs of the Mercury Wine CRU blending competition with a blend of Brad’s 60% Cab Franc, 20% Zin, 10% Mourvedra, and 10% Petite Sirah. That said, we’ve also never met a whiskey or bourbon we didn’t like.

My greatest passion in life is traveling, and my favorite places include Hanalei, Kauai; County Kerry, Ireland; Islay, Scotland; and Tofino, British Columbia. Upcoming trips include Maine and London.
