Y’all. This family is a bunch of gems. And fitting enough, the youngest is named Gemma. We met at their (and my) favorite winery in Southwest Virginia, Abingdon Winery, for a gorgeous day of sunshine and sipping. There were actually several prom groups simultaneously capturing memories, and everyone in both parties was dressed to impress.

Keeping as many memories of our mothers & grandmothers is important, if we are lucky enough to get the time with them. The way this family of two Grandmas, Mamma, and Dad have created the village that raises the child is what touches my heart when I look back on this day. The little details & the little looks. But also, when Gemma was apprehensive about meeting the winery pups and faced her fears to get some smooches. Truly a feel good day 🙂
