People Behind the Purses: Phoebe

phoebeOh my, brace yourself for cuteness! This has got to be one of my favorite interviews I’ve done.

Meet Phoebe, my cousin’s adorable four-year-old daughter (correction: almost five, as you will read!). This girl, as you can see, has plenty of heart-warming sass and a big, loving heart to boot. After you read this interview, you might just have to get a Phoebe of your own!

How do you know Rebekah?

She’s Daddy’s cousin in South Dakota, where Grandma Pauline lives.

Give us a brief bio of yourself. (Tell us about your family, your job, your hobbies, etc.)

My name is Phoebe: P-H-O-E-B-E. I am almost 5. My birthday is November 7, 2011. I live in North Carolina at the end of the street, in a pink house with green shutters. I love to play with stuffed animals so much that I never want to let go of them — not even when I’m brushing my teeth. And I love my dog Piper.

My job is to go to school and clean up after myself. I go to Maple House — it’s my school. Elizabeth is my mom, and Luke is my dad.

How many RSD purses do you own?

One. I got it when I was a teeny, tiny baby. It carried around my baby diapers, shoes, toys, bottles, and clothes. It’s the Phoebe bag!

I also have baby shoes from Cousin Rebekah! When I got them I said, “Awww…will these fit my babies? They are so tiny and beautiful.”

Do you have a favorite fabric?

Huh? Well, this one. I like the gray with green. Green is my favorite color.

Do you own the purse named after you? What do you like about it?

I do! It’s really special to me and Mommy and Daddy, because it’s named after me. I love the green on it.

We’re curious about a few of your “favorites”: favorite movie, favorite book and favorite ice cream flavor?

Ooh! I don’t know what my favorite movie is! I think Kung Fu Panda is my best movie. Yeah. My favorite book is What is a Family? But I love to listen to A to Z Mysteries, because they are mysteries. My favorite ice cream is mint chocolate chip.

Do you have a quote or motto you live by?

“May you be happy, may you be healthy, may you be safe, may you be loved.” That’s my meditation. I sometimes add “May you be gassy.”

What is your must-have item in your purse at all times and why?

I have to a stuffed animal with me at all times because they are really comfy and make me feel good.
