  A few Friday’s ago right before the sun started to set and all the animals were put to bed for the evening the Indianapolis Zoo came to life for their annual charity, Zoobilation. This is the second time that I have attended the event and it never disappoints! You simply can’t go wrong with […]

Posted on June 22nd, 2012 by RDIAdmin | Comments: Comments Off on Janelle’s 12 Favorite Things!

  For those that haven’t met me, I’m extroverted, creative and highly enthusiastic.
