Best Weekend Ever: What HuffPost Women Readers Did June 8th-10th
With the summer well underway, many of our readers took full advantage of the sunshine this weekend. Between riding horses, participating in triathlons and trying out kayaking, you were anything but sedentary. Whether you enjoyed the outdoors in far away places like Japan and Ireland or took time to relax at a park closer to home, you had the entire HuffPost Women team motivated to make our own weekends more like yours.
In case you forgot, the premise here is that as much as we look forward to the weekend (even when it's only Monday), it's also fun to look back on the amazing couple of days you just had and appreciate that time.
Check out the photos below, and don't forget to take a snapshot of your favorite moment next weekend and send it to firstname.lastname@example.org. We'll feature it in next week's Best Weekend Ever slideshow.
