Why Love Wednesday?

My husband and I had our first date on a Wednesday night and we have dated every Wednesday since! – Jenny Tiffen

I met the man of my dreams {Gerard} in his office. I was sent to him by a sweet real estate agent who was helping me purchase my first piece of Australia. I was 20yo.

Gerard was {and still is} a mortgage broker and I needed a home loan. Something sparked inside of me immediately when we met. It wasn’t love at first sight, or maybe it was but I didn’t know it at the time.

After many phone calls and dropping off of paperwork and little interactions here and there, he finally asked me out. I was working shifts for Qantas at the time. The only night we could grab was a Wednesday. Hump Day. Unknowingly Perfect!

14+ years of love, 12 years of marriage and 5 babies later, we continue to date on Wednesday night. Its our ritual. Tradition. Nothing messes with date night! This must be how we have come through so much and still stay friendly, flirty and interested in each other. Date night seems to be catchy too! We’ve told loads of couples we date every Wednesday and I love it when they come back to us later and tell us they’re mid-week dating too! Sometimes we even tee up a double-date with other Wednesday Lovers.

Of course there are other things to love about Wednesdays. Every day that we are given is precious. You can find something to love in all of them. I am always thinking of ways to create the life I love, stemming from the saying “Blossom where you are planted”. If you don’t like something about the way you live, change it! Make the absolute best of what you have got. This could be making the effort to date your husband, exercise, eat better, smile more – whatever it is that will help you blossom.

Thank you for stopping in!
