Awesome Ladies' Day!

What a great time we had at a recent Ladies’ Day. The theme was Feast of Purim (a Jewish holiday celebrating Esther saving her people from annihilation). We planned the day around things having to do with Esther and activities that are done in the actual festival.

We started out with a masquerade because Esther hid her identity. The ladies each made their own masks and we voted for the best mask. What a hard decision!

Next we got a beauty treatment….. (Hand Spa)

Hayley helped with the hand spa using ingredients likely used in Biblical times. (milk, honey, etc)
