Rayna 101: My 2014 Tick list, Quarterly Update #1

It’s April! Which means it’s time for my quarterly update on my 2014 Ticklist. Does anyone else feel like the last three months just flew by? 

I’m pleased with how 2014 is going so far and I can’t wait to see what the next quarter brings, but in the mean while, here is my update. These keep me honest. 


Get married to the most amazing person in the world  – this is already in the works. Details to come.  – We have a wedding date and a venue: October 17th, 2014 at Narcisi’s Winery.
