An Insider Guide to Shopping for Little Ones in Boerne

Ewe and Eye- BoerneAs a mom, it’s easy to fall into the trap of shopping for your kids more than yourself. Guilty as charged! Their clothes are just so darn adorable and the Hill Country Mile has a number of stores for kiddos that provide an abundant selection of cute clothes, fun toys or perfect gifts for the wee ones. HOWEVER, as your read this, keep in mind there are great opportunities to shop for yourself here in Boerne too, so don’t forget about #1 while you’re here!
