Did you buy your Christmas tree at Brambleton Town Center this year? For the second year in a row we bought our there from Suzanne Eaton Christmas Trees, and I have to say it was the most beautiful tree we’ve ever had! One side benefit is they donate a portion of their profits to the Cherry Blossom Breast Cancer Foundation. photo courtesy of Brambleton Town Center
