Summer is the most beautiful time in the year. The sun is out, and the flowers are blooming. It's a time to show off brighter colors and attitude. It's also a time when too much of a good thing can become well, too much - the sun you've wanted for so long is out but too hot for you to enjoy.

Fat Positive Blogs
Blogs are a wonderful source of information. I have found them to be a useful Fat resource, especially when it comes to body positivity and fatshion. It is so helpful to see what clothes look like on bodies that are shaped like ours. It is also helpful to know that there are others out there who have the same life struggles that we have. You might get a different perspective on how to deal with things, based on the experiences of others.
I recently joined a group of plus size bloggers. We are taking one fashion topic a month and doing a blog hop. Our first topic was leggings. We all did a blog about it, linked our blogs, and published them at the same time. It is so great to see the many different ways an item can be worn on a fat person, from smaller plus to super plus.
Here is a link to my blog. In it, you will find the links to all the other blogs.
Here is a list of some fat positive blogs that might help you on your journey:
"Colored scents that fill the air as drowsy insects hum around in the meadow is the place of secret magic where nature alone renews itself."
"Dirty hands, iced tea, garden fragrances thick in the air and a blanket of color before me, who could ask for more?"
