My Special Bonus Favorite
I just love the content full of encouragement, motivation, and support. The best way to share how great this blog is to just share something from the site. "We're here to tell you that you do matter, you are good enough, your body is amazing (yes, even if you have cellulite and some wobbly bits!) and what you want from life is really important" That really says it all and that is the theme throughout the blog. Love it, love it, love it!!
