Happy Mother’s Day weekend!

I’ve always loved this quote, which is actually a Jewish Proverb, “God could not be everywhere, so He created Mothers.”


I am very blessed with lots of kids and grandkids.

I am also blessed with a wonderful husband who surprised me with an early Mother’s day outing.

He took me to Blue Sky for lunch...which included Sweet Potato fries...oh my! And then drove over to Diamond Brand to buy me some new hiking shoes.


I have hiking boots but I don’t always wear them for a ‘day hike’ so the sales person at Diamond Brand helped me find these lighter weight hiking shoes. They will be perfect for the type of hiking we do now. (good tread on the bottom)


So I am excited to get new shoes for Mother’s day! Just what I wanted!


Would new shoes make you happy, too?

I hope your day is filled with fun and surprises!


Enjoy your weekend!

I love shoes!!! I'm a shoe nut, but not as much as I use to be. But, a new pair always makes me happy. Love your new hiking shoes, beautiful photos, Happy Mother's Day, my friend.

I do need some new sneakers. Mine have all about had it. But I hate to spend money on clothes and such. I'd much rather spend it in the garden!

New shoes for hiking would not make me happy because I would take that as a hint that I need to get more exercise -- LOL! But yours look very fancy and I know you'll enjoy them! Happy Mother's Day to you as well!

Hi Diane,
Love the quote too and many years ago I cross stitched it on a gift for my mother and mil. They loved it.
Great new treads and love the color. What a wonderful day for you with lunch and shopping for hiking shoes.
Wishing you a wonderful Mother's Day and blessings always.
Hugs, Celestina Marie

Shoes would make me happy... especially comfortable ones. Your new hiking shoes look great and I know you will enjoy them as you are out hiking.
Have a very Happy Mother's Day.
Your header is gorgeous!! We were in Blowing Rock today for Art in the Park. Fun and so pretty in the mountains.

Happy Mother's Day sweet friend...blessings

I am happy that you got some new shoes! I am down to about 3 pair that I can wear now because of some inflammation that has reared its ugly head (or foot). I got rose bushes instead...and am waiting for the mailman to drop them off.

I hope you have a wonderful day tomorrow- xo Diana

Vee said...

Love your new hiking shoes, Diane! Wish I could go on a hike with you! I also read about your essential oils. I love that you can buy the whole set. I have Amazon $$, too. Does the diffuser work well? Happy Mother's Day to you. xoxo
