I am so excited to be traveling to Tucson, Arizona this week to be one of the presenters at the 1st ever Body Love Conference. If you are familiar with The Militant Baker, Tess Munster, Plus Size Mommy Memoirs or other Body Positivity Warriors who help teach that all bodies are beautiful …. then you may be familiar with this new conference. It is the INSPIRING and AMAZING Jes Baker who came up with this idea and who is the mastermind behind this conference. www.BodyLoveConference.com
