Lazy Sundays

Written by , Posted in Lazy Sundays

Aren’t Sundays the best for laying round and do nothing? Maybe you go to church or slip in a late brunch, but then you head home, slip on your most coveted pair of comfy yoga pants, and settle in for a day on the couch with nothing that you absolutely have to do. Unfortunately that doesn’t happen every week, but I really do love the Sundays when it does…

Lazy Sundays is a new series that I’m starting here on Lion+Maven where I round up some of my favorite reads that I’ve stumbled across on the internet over the last week. You’ve seen it before, everyone has their own name for it! I think it’s the perfect way to pass the time on a Lazy Sunday, and I hope you do too!

    • So jealous!! Olympics + White Russians sounds like my kind of Sunday!
