Hen(na) Party!

One of our members, our dear Miss Sherry, got married on October 10, 2010 at 10 o'clock. Sherry, who follows the stars and her heart, placed particular significance on all those tens!

As part of the preparation for her ceremony, Sherry requested that a group of us participate in a henna party - painting her body for the ceremony. The idea is that she sits on her "throne" and we not only paint her, but feed her and provide her with drink, because she really can't move much while we're painting her.

Everyone brought a ton of food....great stuff!

Mind you, most of us had never done this before. Sherry is an expert and does it often for her customers...but she had to teach us at one of the meetings. I had to have private lessons, since I wasn't able to attend the first session. It was fun, and very interesting. I know we all were touched to be such a significant part of Sherry's preparations.

Here's some pictures!

Thanks Sherry for letting us share this day with you!
