Erin's Party

Last night, the women I work with got together to have a special evening for Erin.

This beautiful young woman is leaving the spa to focus her energy on her pregnancy and upcoming motherhood.

We had a wonderful potluck dinner before a ritual was performed celebrating the transition from 'maiden to mother.'

Each of us brought three beads to the party, each bead signifying something special. We all took turns telling Erin what each bead meant and placed them in a bowl which was passed from woman to woman, until all the beads were in the bowl.The beads are to be strung together to form a necklace for Erin.

All of us had a very special time and all look forward to the arrival of Erin and Greg's new child in April.
