In other countries henna (which is a plant) has been used for thousands of years to temporarily decorate the body. Henna is best known for its use in marriage celebrations in India, but it is in North Africa that henna is used to celebrate child birth.
For my nine month pregnancy photos I asked SarahKate to henna and photograph me in celebration of our little blessing on the way :-) I hope you enjoy the photos as much as we do. Also I wanted to mention that I'll be taking some time off pretty soon here, when baby arrives, but while I'm not posting recipes of my own I have some great guests lined up to share their gluten-free recipes with you. And of course we will share photos of the baby as soon as we can :-)
