Road Trip!!!It’s Spring Break and my daughter and I leave for a road trip to Los Angeles today!

We’ll be taking over @RoadTrip, which is a rotating Twitter account run by our dear friend Greeter Dan. He allows people going on an epic road trip to take it over and do what they will with it. I hope you’ll follow it to find out where we’re up to in L.A.!

Also, I have a new tagline: “Play with me, people!” What do you think?
