Gala, a prom for Cherry Blossom attendees

The Cherry Blossom Gala Ball reminded me a lot of going to the prom. Everyone gets dressed up in a range of outfits - some in the more hoochie dresses, some in full-on beaded gowns, some in the more casual dresses, and some sporting hairdo's you would find in any hair-don't catalog.

There were hors d'oeuvres and desserts from Red Lobster, Satterfield's, Pig in a Pit, Healy Point, Natalia's and Wal-Mart, to name a few. (The chocolate mousse from Natalia's was D-E-V-I-N-E.) And The Grapevine are actually very, very good - I'd never heard them play before. They were a lot of fun.

The thing that most surprised me about the whole night was that so many people in Macon know how to ballroom dance. There were tons of couples on the dance floor throughout the night - young and old. Who knew?

I think I've also decided, and this is only after going to two events so far, that Mayor Robert Reichert's wife, Dele, is probably one of the best-dressed people in town. I'd love a peak at her closet! She had on this ruffled top last night that wouldn't look good on a lot of people - but on her it was so adorable!

People really know how to boogie in Macon.
