Wives Day


Did you know that August 5th is Wives Day?

Here is the official origin story of this beautiful holiday. Many moons ago (about 8 or 9 years ago to be more precise), I decided the there wasn’t a day between my birthday in May and Christmas that was all about me. Now, you may be thinking that I am completely self centered and spoiled, but I will tell you that you’re {pretty much} wrong. Is it so bad to enjoy being pampered and fussed about? NO! I deserve it, you deserve it, we all deserve it!

So I looked at a calendar to┬ápick a good date that fell somewhere in the middle between May and December and there was August 5. It sounded like the perfect date for Wives Day. I told my husband about it right then and there and believe it or not, as much he thought I was a little bit ridiculous, he actually seemed to enjoy the idea of another day where we got to “celebrate” something, no matter how silly {or completely made up!} Over the years, there have been a few times where I completely forgot Wives Day was coming up and he surprised me with plans to take me out. Man, he’s a keeper.

We usually go out to dinner and maybe do something fun. Nothing crazy but we have a good time and we get to celebrate that I’m his wife! Although, I should probably be the one who plans the night for him, since I’m really celebrating that he keeps me around!

Tell your spouse and go out and celebrate! Oh, and don’t forget to mark your calendars for next year!

Happy Wives Day!
