Discussing The Significance of Moana And Family With Dwayne The Rock Johnson #Moana So, I’m not sure if you heard, but I got to hang out with Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson last week 🙂  Well, I got to interview him and take a few photos with him.  “Hanging out” sounds like so much more fun than “press junket”.  So, for the purposes of helping my ego, I’m going to call it “hanging out” 😀  I, along with 24 other bloggers from across the country, was able to spend time asking
