I was at a blogging conference this past weekend here in San Jose (which is where my Curvy Girl retail store is located) called Blogher. ( #blogher or their other hashtag #blogher14 )
One of the speakers, The Blogess, said something that hit me right between the eyes.

(Plus throw in a little bit of shopping for sexy plus size lingerie and other romance goodies.) It was a great night all around.
