Living Out Loud July/Aug 2021


Take Paws

We have to chuckle just a little as we apologize for an error in our May/June feature, “The Heritage Meal.” Writer Mikael Blido thought he heard Gail Pond, from Thomas Jefferson’s Poplar Forest, say Jefferson’s cook used cat paws to extract natural gelatin to make a wine jelly. But she said calf. Thankfully, you can buy gelatin packets at the grocery store so no cats should have been harmed due to this misunderstanding!

Bridal Showcase Success
Wedding season is back—and we couldn’t be more thrilled for couples and the local wedding industry. We held our annual Bridal Showcase on June 6, 2021, at the Kirkley Hotel; approximately 70 brides and their families came out to talk with vendors about their big day. Be sure to check out our sister publication, Central Virginia Bridal Guide, at or find one at local stands with Lynchburg Living.
