Southern Virginia Mom's Christmas Wish List (sung to the tune of "My Favorite Things")

Last year I sat down to write my Christmas wish list at just the time I was awaiting the new Sound of Music television movie. What resulted was the first part of a holiday wish list, sung to the tune of "My Favorite Things." I posted my list on facebook last year, and at the urging of several friends, wrote the second verse, which included even more local shopping ideas. If you have a business you'd like to see included on the list, please let me know. If I have enough, I may just write a third part. Let's always remember our local businesses and friends when knocking out that holiday shopping! 
Cheers! Erin

Courtland and Carrington took this picture recently to promote Destination Downtown South Boston's 2014 Christmas Open House. Thanks to DDSB's Tamyra Vest for asking the children to take part in this ad, to Blakely Swanson at Images by Swanson Photography for the beautiful photo, and to Andy Newland, owner of 3 Women No Truck for the lovely Christmas backdrop. Isn't this horse gorgeous? It is for sale at 3 Women No Truck. Thanks to Andy, also, for the wonderful candle. It smells so good! We all had fun with this, and love to support our local businesses! Merry Christmas!
