Happy Birthday Phoebe! My sweet little niece lives (3) hours away in a small town. When she was asked what kind of a Birthday PARRTTY she wanted to have this year, she decided not to have a party but asked her Mom if she could go SHOPPING in Portland… (insert laughing emoji) Seriously, this kid- a girl after my own heart. She had a certain amount of money she could spend and OFF to the mall she went. Luckiest day EVER because Ellie and I were invited to spend the special day with her. This cute little birthday girl, managed her birthday money quite well. She had planned her stores in advanced. Build A Bear, Claire’s and Jamba Juice where just a few. She really thought out in details which items she could use the most… seriously, she was the cutest. It always amazes me when kids spend their own money they become more mindful of what they want. Ellie was like this as a child. My money she’d spend it in a second. Her money, she would have to think about it. Happy Birthday to my sweet niece. Thank you for letting Ellie and I join your shopping FUN! I love you to pieces.
